An unruly plane passenger in San Francisco has a bloodied forehead and the story of a lifetime after getting beat up by former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.
According to TMZ, Tyson was captured on video throwing a bevy of short punches – not haymakers – at a man on a plane at San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday after the passenger had appeared to annoy him. Sources close to Tyson claim the man was extremely intoxicated and wouldn’t stop provoking the boxer prior to the outburst.
A witness on the plane told TMZ that the former heavyweight champ was initially cordial to fans asking for photographs, but one man continued talking in Tyson’s ear which appeared to irritate him.
The man was seated on the row directly behind Tyson, and ‘Iron’ Mike stood up and reached over the back of his seat and punched away.
Footage shows the man was left bleeding from his forehead. A witness on the plane told TMZ the man required medical attention and went to the police, who have not confirmed an investigation into the incident.
The flight was headed to Miami, where Tyson is slated to speak at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference Afterparty at LIV in Miami at 8 PM ET Thursday night.
