Mike Tyson allegedly punches drunk, aggressive man on flight

There are many ways to encounter turbulence during a flight. If one is creative enough, one apparent way is to repeatedly irritate the legendary former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Tyson was on a late-night flight bound for Florida from San Francisco. The 55-year-old was reportedly seen taking a photo with his fans at their request. However, one of them was intoxicated and was continuously harassing the Hall of Fame boxer. He kept talking gibberish in Tyson’s ears, despite the latter’s plea for the man to stop.

The man’s wish was to be punched by Tyson, and it was certainly not the most difficult challenge for Iron Mike who has had a total history of 58 world boxing records. Tyson finally got out of his seat and started throwing punches at him.

As per TMZ, the man received medical attention for non-life-threatening injuries. No serious damage was reported, but he went to talk to the police after they landed.

On the other hand, Tyson’s representatives later told TMZ that the intoxicated man was being “aggressive” and “harassing” the former boxer. It was said that the passenger also threw a water bottle at Tyson.

This was not the first time Tyson has received unwanted public attention. Once, a man was flashing a gun and swinging it around Tyson. In the end, Tyson offered him a hug.

Tyson is set to have a public discussion about weed at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Miami on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Tyson had an incident on a flight with an aggressive passenger who began harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat."
