If former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has 99 problems, his inability to gain access to Chile is definitely one of them.

The former champion was prevented from entering Chile on Thursday because of his criminal record, airport police said.

Immigration police at Santiago international airport tweeted a photo of the 51-year-old former heavyweight champion being escorted by officers “re-embarking” him.

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

The police force explained it had the power to “prohibit the entry into the country of any foreigner who has negative records and/or convictions in their country of origin.”
