Mike Tyson riles easy, and we’ve seen that over the years as the boxing legend has battled it out as much in court, as he has done so in the ring. The “baddest man on the planet” as he was once known let his fists fly last week, punching what seemed to be a “hapless” fan who kept bothering him to the point of no return.
But now it seems the victim was also partly to blame, as he’s been discovered to have a rather long rap sheet. This is what we know…
Mike Tyson Angered By ‘Overly Excited Fan’
Last week, on Wednesday, the former undisputed heavyweight champion, 55, was preparing to fly from San Francisco to Florida, out of San Francisco International Airport. He boarded a JetBlue flight and seemed all smiles at first, clicking selfies with fans and socializing as celebrities do.
A witness said that he and his friend spotted Tyson on the JetBlue flight, who seemed to be okay with all the attention he got from them. The witness told TMZ that Tyson even took selfies with him but his super-excited friend would not leave Tyson alone. The punching victim kept badgering the heavyweight who told the guy to “chill” but when he didn’t, Tyson got up and began to throw some punches. This was captured on video as well.
According to Fox News, the man who was filmed being punched has lawyered up and the lawyer, Matt Morgan, later said that he was just an “overly excited fan.”
Morgan told NBC: “At first their interaction was cordial. At a certain point, Mr. Tyson became agitated by an overly excited fan and began to strike him. This situation could have been avoided simply by contacting a flight attendant. To state the obvious, as one of the greatest fighters of all time, Mr. Tyson should have known not to use his hands on an overly excited fan.”
