Is Mike Tyson the role model Willie Jackson makes him out to be?
The Urban Maori Authority chairman has reached out to promoter Max Markson, offering a letter supporting the convicted rapist's entrance into New Zealand. The support is on the condition that Tyson visits a Marae in south Auckland and speaks to young Maori from the area.
"We're into Whanau Ora, we're into turning lives around - Tyson can help," Willie told Marcus Lush on RadioLIVE.
Listen to Marcus Lush speak with Willie Jackson about his support of Mike Tyson's visit here.
Is Mike Tyson redeemed? Should he be allowed to visit New Zealand?
