THE Yorkshireman who bought Mike Tyson's house is planning to give it away in a multi-million dollar poker tournament in which the former world heavyweight boxing champion will be given the chance to win it back.

Self-made businessman Dominic Marrocco, 32, who paid $4m (2.3m) for Tyson's former Las Vegas estate last year, wants to make the poker game the centre of a reality television show in which hundreds will battle it out to win the ultimate piece of boxing memorabilia.

Four people will win through to a grand final which will be held in a vast marquee on the basketball court in the grounds of Tyson's former home.

However they will not be the only ones with a chance of winning the house as there will be two extra places in the final one for Mr Marrocco, the other for Tyson.
