Details of the new deal emerged Friday and see the legendary boxer become a regional ambassador for BRBet.com in Brazil.

The first activation between BRBet.com and Tyson portrays the famous boxer working out in a private residence in Rio De Janeiro. Then, the famous boxer takes a bowl of popcorn and enjoys a soccer game on TV. At some point, he gets angry that he cannot find the right bet for him, and this is when he picks up a smartphone with the app “BRBet, A Bet do Brasil.” He then scrolls through the app that enables the placing of safe and fast sports bets.
