Everyone was shocked when hearing that their favorite boxer and world champion hit a fellow passenger mid-flight.
As Tyson says, the man was harassing him and threw a water bottle at him, and just after that he lost his patience and hit him.
But the video that went viral didn’t show the part of the water bottle.
He was seen enjoying the weather in San Francisco before punching a fellow passenger. He was boarding his flight and a man, known as Josh Edelson approached for a picture.
He went up to him and said, hey Mike do you mind if I get a picture with you real quick? And Mike accepted and was very calm and in a peaceful mood.
A representative for Tyson said that: ‘Unfortunately Mr. Tyson had an incident with an aggressive passenger who harassed him and threw a water bottle at him while he was sitting.’
San Francisco police respond to the scene, but the person who was treated for minimal injuries provided no details of the incident and refused to cooperate with the police.
A bizarre video showing Mike Tyson punching a fellow passenger has gone viral for all the reasons. A man and his friend were very excited to meet Mike Tyson and take pictures with him.
The man continued to talk without stopping and Mike said him to be quiet. But he failed to do so and continued the same way, and then Mike unleashed punches on his face.
He was flying from San Fransico to Florida. Phone footage showed clearly how the fan was getting on Mike’s nerves and talking to him.
He was trying to have a cordial exchange with Mike. Prior to that, the man and his friend greeted Mike and took a picture with him.
The man wasn’t being quiet and was saying things to Mike. Then he lost his patience and released heavy fists on the man’s face.
There were marks on the man’s face. The one who was shooting the video said: ‘My boy just got beat up by Mike Tyson.’
‘He was trying to ask for an autograph, I don’t know what just happened,’ he added.
The victim went to the police to report what happened and received medical treatment.
There is still no update if Tyson is being investigated over what happened. What do you think about this? Share your thoughts in the comments on Facebook.
We all know how cool Mike Tyson is. Was it right for him to react that way, despite the disturbance of the young man?
