A gutsy burglar entered former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson's hotel room at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, according to a TMZ report. The incident happened on the night of December 31 when Tyson and his family members were occupying the suite after attending a New Year musical programme by Stevie Wonder.

The boxer, who during a match against fellow boxer Evander Holyfield in 1997 had bitten off his both ears, was asleep. But he woke up

on hearing a noise and saw a flashlight. Before he could do anything the intruder vanished.

Nothing was reported missing from the room. The hotel's security was called and the incident was being investigated.
