Its hard to believe that with all the publicity about the our inability to throw criminals out of the country we are inviting convicted rapists here.

Attitudes to women must change. We must vigorously defend the right of all people not to be terrorised and demeaned. Allowing Tyson to continue unchallenged sends the wrong signal.

He has raped a women we should not condone this behaviour ever... He has ruined that womans life and for her to see him being praised by the public must be torture.. I don't want to do that to her

This is disgraceful. What kind of role model are we showing our young black males in the UK - that it is okay to be a violent criminal and receive glory for it? Teresa May needs to resign & Tyson should be cancelled today!

Why is a convicted rapist being lauded by the guildhall... shame on you for cashing in on his notoriety. He is not a positive role model and should be given a blanket ban from entering the country.

We recently contacted the guildhall about putting on a semi pro boxing show featuring local men and boys. All proceeds were going to go to the Naomi house children's hospice. However the guildhall told us this was not something they would like to support or have in there venue! When my husband enquired as to why the Tyson show was ok then. There reply from there booking manager was " but it's mike Tyson ! My husband asked if lining a convicted rapist pockets was more important than helping terminally Ill children. The reply was again" but it's mike Tyson !!!

A victim of rape is forever changed by this horrible crime. A rapist should also live with the consequences of their crime.

Does the Guildhall in Portsmouth really want to be known as a champion of a Rapist? Please consider the message that this will send out to the young people of your city.
