Mike Tyson’s setting up shop in Dubai


Watch yer ears.

Think Mike Tyson and his recent role as an entertainer apart, you visualize an aggressive champion boxer with a brutal right.  Mike Tyson is set to launch a franchise of fitness centres called the Mike Tyson Academy (MTA), with the first Academy opening in Dubai. More academies are set to open in the Middle East, Australia, France, West Africa and China.


The Mike Tyson Academy supposedly will aim for well-rounded fitness, and the centres will feature cardio, strength, functional training and boxing. There will be a full-scale boxing ring in every location and a host of group training and functional classes.
