mike tyson is finally telling people why he beat the hell out of an overbearing fan during a recent robbery… with the boxing legend explaining he was just stoned and irritable at the time!
“Hey listen, I’m usually good at these things,” Tyson said jimmy kimmel on his Thursday night show.
“I was wrong, this should never have happened. This is me back to my primitive stages as a kid, I shouldn’t have done this, but I was just irritated, tired, stoned and pissed off. It happens !”
“I don’t want to hurt anyone!” MT sang.
So the dude tried Mike at the wrong time…and Tyson beat him for it.
Of course, Mike, who was pulled from the plane with the bloodied and bruised passenger, has not been billed with a crime for April 2022 incident.
Melvin Townsend 3the 36-year-old man who was beaten, hired a lawyer several days after the fight … but it’s unclear if he’s made a financial deal with Tyson.
All joking aside, it certainly looks like Mike regrets his actions…although, anecdotally, most believe the former heavyweight champion was well within his rights to land the beatings on him.
Kimmel also asked Mike about a possible boxing match with Jacques-Paul. Mike and Jake are actually buddies…but Tyson is clearly open to the idea.
“It could be very interesting. I never took it really seriously, but it could be really interesting.
