The US Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson who claimed that his 1992 conviction for rape was a 'grave injustice', Reuter reports from Washington.

Tyson was found guilty of raping Desiree Washington, 18, a beauty pageant contestant, in his Indianapolis hotel room in July 1991. The Supreme Court denied the appeal without comment or dissent.
