The 'Warzone' singers reveal that the former boxing champion turned movie star has offered to take the boy band for a night out during their US tour.

The Wanted have revealed that former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson wants to take the boy band for a tour of Las Vegas during their upcoming US Tour.

The Sun reports that Iron Mike was blown away by the band's recent performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and got in touch with the group's management to offer his services.

Singer Tom Parker told the publication: "I can't believe Mike Tyson wants to take us out in Las Vegas. All I keep thinking about is his part in The Hangover — it'll be The Hangover Part 3 with The Wanted boys.

"He wants to show us all the bars, clubs and hotels, it will be sick."

The 'Lightning' stars are due to start their North American tour tomorrow (17th January) with a date in Florida and Tom added he has sympathy for band mate Nathan Sykes as he won't be of the legal age limit to drink in the US.

"I feel a bit sorry for Nath — he'll have to stay in," he added. "It'll be like the early days when he was 16 and we were out all the time." 

Meanwhile, The Wanted recently admitted that they will be taking inspiration from Take That for their first UK headline Arena tour which begins at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on the 15th February.
