He will deliver a keynote speech on boxing promotion in China to the 2016 Annual IBF Convention. As well as discussions, Tyson will take part in a round table debate to be organized by IBF China to share his ideas with Chinese boxing experts and insights on approaches to the development of boxing in China. 

Additionally, Tyson will be present at the Beijing Olympic Parks to witness reigning Thai champion Amnat Ruenroeng defend his flyweight world belt against Filipino challenger John Riel Casimero.
