MIKE TYSON will present Muhammad Ali for induction into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame next weekend [August 8] at the induction gala at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

Tyson was inducted in The Hall’s inaugural year in 2013 and will attend the event alongside Floyd Mayweather and ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard, as well as Marvin Hagler, Lennox Lewis and Eddie Mustafa Muhammad who are all also being inducted this year.

“We are thrilled to have Mike join us for the third consecutive year,” said Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame president/CEO Rich Marotta.

“It’s a big treat for all of the boxing fans who plan to attend the induction gala. Mike’s addition just continues the dizzying array of stars who plan to attend in person to show support for our event.”

Mayweather will pick up his third consecutive Fighter of The Year award from The Hall.

Actress Rosie Perez and famed broadcaster Al Bernstein will host the event.

Tickets are still available for the ceremony at $300, $175 and $75. They can be purchased online at the Hall’s website, nvbhof.com.
