Mike Tyson is not the man to mess with on an airplane. The former heavyweight champ had an unfortunate encounter with an annoying fan recently. Tyson ended up landing several punches to the man’s head before walking off the plane, getting onto another plane, and partying with Ric Flair in Miami.

There was plenty of speculation about the nature of the incident. After it was revealed that the fan was behaving inappropriately and has a long criminal record, all appears to be forgiven for Iron Mike. Tyson did not seem bothered by what happened at all.

In the aftermath of the beatdown, Mike was spotted in the airport having a phone conversation. Tyson laughed as he chatted, not thinking twice about what had taken place on the plane. TMZ Sports shared a video of Tyson yukking it up in the San Francisco airport immediately after he left the plane.

Mike Tyson cooperated with police in the aftermath of the scuffle. Photos from the airport show him sitting in a chair chatting with several law enforcement agents around him. Despite walking away without so much as a fine, the man he punched has already lawyered up.


Tyson’s representatives said that the man threw a water bottle at him. He was also said to have been acting obnoxious and going too far with his interactions with Mike. The alleged victim appears to be trying to cash in on his bad behavior.

Time will tell if there will be a lawsuit. Mike Tyson is not the slightest bit concerned. The Baddest Man on the Planet was all smiles, even after throwing down with the overzealous fan.
