Mike Tyson does not like to be provoked, but a passenger on a flight at San Francisco International Airport did not know this until he was punched in the face several times by one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time.
The punches were thrown on a flight to Florida at approximately 10:30 pm PT. A video showing a very enraged Mike Tyson, was captured while he was hitting the man.
According to a witness on the plane who is a friend of the man that was punched, Tyson was initially nice to them and even took a selfie with him. Tyson was also exercising patience with the man who was said to be overly excited and constantly tried to speak to him.
Apparently, the 55-year-old fighter’s patience had reached its limit with the man who was constantly talking in his ears behind him, and, when he didn’t heed to Tyson’s warning to stop, Tyson began punching him in the face.
The man was left with blood oozing from his forehead, and Tyson disembark the plane seconds later. The man was said to have received medical attention following the incident and went to the police.
According to TMZ, sources that are close to Tyson claimed that the man was heavily intoxicated and would not stop provoking the boxer.
