Mike Tyson Sends Warning To Anyone Abusing Him On Social Media

We can't imagine too many people would be silly enough to troll Mike Tyson given he was nicknamed 'the Baddest Man on the Planet' for a reason.

But Tyson went ahead and gave a clear message for any trolls out there on his Facebook page.

Accompanied by a picture of him, the former world heavyweight champion posted text that read: "Social media made y'all way to comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it."

Tyson was of course pretty handy at punching people in the face, with a 50-6 professional record of which 44 of his fights ended in him knocking out his opponents.

Back in incredible fighting shape at the ripe old age of 54, Tyson returned to the ring last month to face Roy Jones Jr.

"I was afraid I might get hurt!" Interrupted Tyson. "I didn't fight in 20 years, he only stopped fighting for three years... why'd nobody care about my ass?!"

Jones and interviewer Jim Gray can't contain their laughter as Tyson continued his point that Roy - who only retired in 2018 and is the younger man by three years - had advantages.

"I didn't fight in 15 years, he stopped fighting three years ago - and everybody worried about his ass."

When Gray points out that "nobody thinks a giant is going to fall" - referring to Tyson being the natural heavyweight of the pair - Tyson again repeats: "I haven't done this in 15, 16 years! I'm not a giant - I'm a beginner."

The Brooklyn-native actually looked the sharper of the two veterans for much of the eight, two-minute rounds. Tyson definitely brought the fight and landed some solid body shots, while Jones was more content to frustrate the bigger man.

Later, Tyson made some GOAT noises. Just because he could.
