Mike Tyson was once known as the baddest man on the planet. The former heavyweight boxing champion is one of the few fighters who placed visible fear into every opponent they faced. Tyson’s latest bout took place in the unlikeliest of venues.

TMZ Sports has reported that Mike Tyson was involved in an incident during boarding for a flight from San Francisco to Florida. A witness on Tyson’s flight said that Mike seemed to be in good spirits as he got on the plane. An annoying passenger soon sent him into a fit of rage.

Tyson took a selfie with the witness before things got ugly. His friend became extremely excited and continually talked to Tyson from the seat behind him. Eventually, Iron Mike lost his cool.

Tyson told the chatty passenger to cool it. The man didn’t comply, but he should have. Tyson then threw several punches to the face of the man.

The attack left the victim bloodied and it was over in a hurry, because Iron Mike doesn’t need to punch you for long to get the job done. Tyson walked off the plane moments later. The victim received medical attention before speaking to police.

There is no word on whether Mike Tyson has been charged with any crime. Tyson’s representatives have not commented on the matter, nor has JetBlue airlines. Mike had been keeping things together pretty well lately. This latest meltdown could find him in hot water.
