Mike Tyson is considered one of the most legendary boxers in the history of the sport. He was indomitable and his immense punching power always helped him overcome any obstacle. He was once one of the most feared boxers in the business and whenever he was inside ring he sent thunders down the heart of his opponents. However, even Mike has a silly side to him.
Mike got dressed up in a wacky bumblebee costume while dancing behind the scenes at Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday. Mike took to his Instagram Story to poke fun at his get-up. The former professional boxer, 55, had been a judge as part of a spelling bee on the show.
Tyson’s eye-popping ensemble consisted of a yellow-and-black striped padded top, along with matching wings and fluffy ears. The outfit featured tight black leggings, as well as ruffle collar. In the clip, Mike hilariously sang, “Beautiful, I’m feeling beauti-beauti-beautiful,” while writing in his caption, “It’s none of your beeznuss @jimmykimmellive.”
Every year, Jimmy invites the winner of the Scripps National Spelling Bee to defend their title against the talk show host. This year, he had 14-year-old Harini Logan from Texas competing for judges, security guard Guillermo Rodriguez, his own cousin Sal as well as Mike. It comes after Hulu released a preview for the upcoming limited series Mike, which chronicles the life story of the boxer.
Trevante Rhodes plays Tyson in the eight-episode series, which also features Russell Hornsby as Don King, Harvey Keitel as Cus D’Amato and Laura Harrier as Robin Givens. The preview, set to the song I’ve Gotta Be Me, features a montage of clips documenting Tyson’s rise as a boxer to his pinnacle of fame and fortune. Meanwhile, you can check out Tyson’s dancing clip as well as the preview of the docuseries below.
