Mike Tyson flew all the way to Chile, only to be sent home.

The Chilean equivalent of the FBI said on Thursday that the former heavyweight champion did not meet their requirements for entry. They posted a photo on Twitter of authorities walking alongside Tyson in the airport.

Tyson has been convicted of assault and cocaine possession and served three years behind bars in the 1990s for raping a teenage beauty-pageant contestant.

He was reportedly there for a promotional event for a TV channel.
