Popular Ex-Boxer Mike Tyson Barred From Entering Chile

Chile's equivalent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that Tyson doesn't meet requirements for entry, apparently due to his criminal record.

Immigration police at Santiago global airport tweeted a photo of the 51-year-old former heavyweight champion being escorted by officers "re-embarking" him. Tyson was placed on a flight home, according the Investigative Police (PDI). Beginning in 1992, Tyson served three years of a six-year sentence for rape in the state of in; he has also received separate convictions on assault and drug charges.

It said he was being deported for "not complying with immigration law".

The PDI did not specify which part of the law Tyson did not comply with, and did not immediately respond to an email and a phone call seeking additional information.

This had a devastating effect on his career, as the once untouchable heavyweight champ would never reach the heady heights he attained in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He also has been convicted of assault and cocaine possession.

This isn't the first time he has been barred from a country for his lengthy rap sheet.

He previously encountered similar issues in New Zealand in 2012, when authorities revoked an entry visa for the 51-year-old after charity bosses withdrew their support for the sportsman over his criminal history.
