VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -- An upstate New York wedding went an extra round when boxing great Mike Tyson just happened to stumble upon the wedding party posing for pictures.

The Observer-Dispatch of Utica reports (http://bit.ly/157FrRf ) Saturday the Brooklyn-born boxer was crossing the lawn of the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y., as Greg and Amber Keller snapped photos with their bridesmaids and groomsmen Friday evening.

Greg Keller says Tyson posed for photographs, congratulated the happy bride and groom on their union and was "extremely nice."

Tyson, a Hall of Famer, was in Verona for his first promotional fight card featuring boxers from his newly created "Iron Mike Productions."

The newly married man says Tyson's surprise cameo energized the evening's celebrations.
