Mike Tyson Starts Dancing In Excitement During Ryan Garcia And Gervonta Davis Phone Call
Mike Tyson became so hyped at the trash talk between lightweight superstars Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis that he got up and started dancing on the spot.
The former undisputed heavyweight champ showed his sensational moves on his Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson podcast. The 22-year-old rising star Garcia was Tyson's guest, while 'Tank' Davis video called in to talk to his rival.
When the two made a verbal agreement to fight next, Garcia began to strut his stuff. So naturally Tyson, 32 years his senior, had to get up, then get on down. Iconic.
Things kicked off when Davis called in to speak to Tyson. "I love you, this n**** over here is talking mad s**t about you, Tank," said Iron Mike by way of introduction.
Garcia chimed in with a prediction that he would knock out Davis in two rounds when they fought, with Davis responding that "Mike! He got dropped by someone he can't even hit."
Both Davis and Garcia boast undefeated records. The 26-year-old 'Tank' is a multi-weight world champion who produced the KO of the year in 2020 when he sparked out Leo Santa Cruz with a hellacious uppercut.
Garcia just came through the toughest test of his pro career, getting off the canvas to stop British Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell at the start of this year with a brutal body shot.

The taller Garcia goes on to say that Davis would need "a stairmaster" to land that uppercut against him. But one thing the two rivals can agree on is that each wants the other man next - which caused Tyson and Garcia to start throwing some shapes.
Despite Tyson's visible excitement at such a mouth-watering fight, this is boxing - which means there's no guarantee that we really will see Davis vs Garcia in the ring in 2021.
However there's an incredible generation of American talent coming through at 135lb. Head of the queue is Teofimo Lopez, who defeated former pound-for-pound king Vasyl Lomachneko in October.
Then there's power-punching Davis, quick-handed social media star Garcia and also the slick Devin Haney, who's the youngest of the lot.
All four Americans are unbeaten, exciting and boast different styles and personalities.
Seeing any combination of this four face-off is a dream for boxing fans - and it seems Iron Mike is even more excited than the rest of the planet.
