Mike Tyson has shattered the headlines for the wrong reasons today as he repeatedly punched a co-passenger who was sitting behind him on a plane. Apparently, as per sources the man sitting behind looked drunk and was heckling the former heavyweight champion for a long time.
This incident took place a few hours ago as Mike was scheduled to fly out of San Francisco Airport to Florida. Initially, after Mike boarded the plane, he was very cordial to everyone around him. According to TMZ, a witness has even reported that Mike Tyson even clicked a selfie with that fan.
But the co-passenger was so excited that he kept annoying Tyson by constantly blabbering and didn’t stop even after the former champion respectfully asked him to stop talking.
Thereafter Iron Mike lost his patience and started hammering the guy who was sitting behind and annoying him throughout the journey. The co-passenger suffered some bruises after the entire physical altercation. Chamatkar Sandhu posted a video on his handle where the fan who was attacked by Tyson was in complete dismay.

As per TMZ’s report, the person who was injured has received medical attention. However, Mike has offered no comments regarding this situation. Also, there is no information available regarding the police officer’s comments.
Mike Tyson has lost calm in the past
This is not the first time that Mike Tyson has physically assaulted someone. During his childhood days, he was often arrested by police for his over aggression. Thereafter even during his professional career, Iron Mike was surrounded by various controversies.
From allegedly being violent to his former wife to biting the ear of Evander Holyfield during their fight. However, the former heavyweight champion was away from controversies for a long time now. But this incident could have major repercussions for him as he physically assaulted a co-passenger while travelling on a flight.
