Mike Tyson Filmed Punching Fellow Plane Passenger In Face Multiple Times

Mike Tyson’s hands are seemingly still rated E for everybody!

According to reports, retired professional boxer Mike Tyson, 55, seemingly lost his cool while on a plane Wednesday night (April 20) and punched a man in the face multiple times for annoying him. The crazy incident occured around 10:30 PM PT as Mike Tyson was slated to fly out of San Francisco International Airport to Florida.

A witness from the flight claims that Tyson was initially kind to the other passengers as they boarded and even took a picture with some people, including the man he eventually went on to punch. The unnamed man then sat behind Tyson and continually tried to spark a conversation with the former heavyweight champion while his friend recorded him from another seat.

Video footage has surfaced online of the events that led up to the altercation and in the clip, the man can be seen standing up behind Tyson, pointing down at him, and talking across the JetBlue aircraft to his friend about “The Hangover” star. Eventually, Tyson reportedly became annoyed and asked the man to calm down. However, when he didn’t stop witnesses claim that’s when Tyson started to throw several punches at the man’s face.

(Warning: the altercation is graphic but can be seen below) 

After hitting the chatty passenger numerous times Tyson exited the aircraft, while the man who was punched received medical attention and also informed the police about what went down, according to reports. There’s no word on whether an investigation has been launched. The video ends with the punched man’s friend saying,

“My boy just got beat up by Mike Tyson.”

He adds,

“Yeah, he got f*cked up. He was just trying to ask for an autograph. I don’t know what happened.”


At this moment neither Mike Tyson nor JetBlue has released a statement on the incident.
