He isn’t known as Iron Mike for nothing. In the event of an all-out brawl, Mike Tyson would be the one person I would never want to fight.
Mike Tyson got into a brawl with a fellow passenger aboard a flight on Wednesday night, according to video obtained by TMZ.
According to an eyewitness, Tyson was on a trip from San Francisco to Florida when he engaged in discussion with a fellow passenger, even posing for a selfie.
Another passenger can be seen filming the dialogue going on behind Tyson’s seat. Things got worse after Tyson became upset with the passenger for not leaving him alone and launched a series of punches from his seat.
From the footage, it’s clear that the man was obnoxious and wouldn’t leave Tyson alone, and after he’d had enough of his petty antics, Tyson vented his rage.
According to one source, the man with whom Tyson got into a brawl was “extremely intoxicated” and wouldn’t stop harassing him.
According to TMZ,
The witness tells us Mike took a selfie with him … and then was patient with his overly excited buddy, who kept trying to talk to the 55-year-old fighter as he sat behind him.
Eventually, though, we’re told Tyson had enough of the guy behind him talking in his ear … and told him to chill. When the guy didn’t, that’s when the witness says Tyson started to throw several punches at the man’s face.
We’re told the man who was punched received medical attention and then went to the police over the incident. We’ve reached out to cops for comment, but so far, no word back yet.
Let this be a lesson learned, don’t do stupid immature stuff like talk crap behind a boxer’s ear where he can hear you. It obviously won’t end well.
