Oneida Nation Homelands (September 22, 2014) – Boxing legend Mike Tyson will hit New York airwaves this week in a powerful new TV ad for Turning Stone Resort Casino. In the 30 second spot, Tyson, who has frequented the resort as a boxing promoter, repeatedly demands to be “hit” by a Turning Stone blackjack dealer. The former heavyweight world champion also weighs in with his thoughts on the resort, calling it “a knockout.”
The advertisement continues by weaving through Turning Stone’s impressive array of on-site offerings including the newest gaming, world-class boxing, and vast restaurant, bar, and entertainment options.
Tyson’s knockout commercial for Turning Stone debuts today in Albany, Rochester and Binghamton on multiple stations including ESPN, ESPN2, MTV, and Comedy Central. It can also be viewed on Turning Stone’s website at TurningStone.com.
Tyson holds strong roots in upstate New York and has effectively established Turning Stone as his home ring, hosting several high-profile bouts under his Iron Mike Products at the resort. Turning Stone continues to distinguish itself as a premier destination for boxing, attracting distinguished boxing alums such as Tyson and Floyd Mayweather, Jr., as well as the sport’s newest, up-and-coming talent.
An award-winning, four-season destination resort, Turning Stone also offers PGA-level golf courses (72 holes), a full-service spa, and lavish accommodations at its sprawling 3,400 acre complex. Proudly hosting more than 4.5 million visitors each year, Turning Stone is one of the top five tourist destinations in the state of New York, and continues to attract new visitors from throughout the region and country.
