The footage, which was obtained by TMZ, shows Mike hitting the man after being harassed even before the plane took off. Mike said that the man was messing with him despite the fact that Mike a took picture with him.
He was f*cking with me, man. I took pictures with this n****. I shouldn’t even be taking public planes. A bodyguard and a f*cking yes man. What am I gonna do on a plane?

He also recognized it’s ultimately a lose-lose situation. Mike had also mentioned a triggering occurrence that occurred during the iconic Holyfield battle. The passenger has retained counsel, so it’s uncertain whether Mike will be required to unlock his wallet. Check out the video below.
