Perhaps inspired by the presence of the "baddest man on the planet" in their midst, guests at a British boxing dinner for Mike Tyson launched into a mass punch-up.

Police said they were called to a "large fight" at the Heritage Hotel in Derby, central England, where Tyson had appeared to launch a four-date promotional tour of Britain.

Among the guests at the "black tie" function Tuesday night, where tickets cost 127 pounds a head, was former British heavyweight champion Frank Bruno.

"Police received an emergency call notifying them of a large fight taking place inside the hotel," a Derbyshire police spokeswoman said.
