War between Mike Tyson and Don king is officially finished – says Don King who says TMZ Sports the two finally made peace after decades of animosity.
The beef between the two is legendary – Tyson had accused his former promoter of swindling him out of millions of dollars during his boxing heyday.
In fact, Tyson sued King for $ 100 million in 1998 – but ultimately agreed to settle for $ 14 million.
Tyson has criticized Don publicly over the years – even calling him “miserable, slimy, reptilian.”
And who could forget when Tyson threw water on Don King for touching him without permission at a 2018 boxing event.
But, GOOD NEWS … Don says despite all the drama, they’re back in speaking terms!
“I love Mike Tyson,” King tells us … “I never said anything bad about Mike Tyson.”
“I just spoke to him on his birthday June 30 – he and his beautiful wife and I wished them happy birthday.”
King says the two had a “long-distance call” – and he’s excited for how it turned out.
“I’m just really, really happy that I can still see Mike around.”
As for Mike coming fight against Roy Jones Jr.Don danced around the question when we asked him to pick a winner – but it’s clear he still thinks Tyson is as dangerous as ever.
By the way, King is still VERY involved in professional boxing – he’s promoting a huge fight between undefeated heavyweights Trevor Bryan and Christopher lovejoy September 26 for the interim WBA heavyweight title on Impact Network.
88 years old and still going strong – only in America!
