Mike Tyson once broke celebrity Steve-O's nose by extending his fist and letting the actor dive into it.

Tyson appeared on Comedy Central's 'Roast Of Charlie Sheen' in 2011 alongside the former Jackass star.

Steve-O, real name Stephen Glover, had the idea of diving face first into 'The Baddest Man on the Planet's' extended fist and it comes as no surprise it messed him up.

Steve-O rises from the ground and his face is covered in blood as the crowd hesitate to cheer what they've just seen.

Even the other celebrities on the panel look just as shocked, with William Shatner and Seth MacFarlane perfectly summing up the polarising reaction.

However, according to Steve-O himself, there was method to his madness.

The 45-year-old explained he had previously broken his nose while filming Jackass: The Movie and that it had set in a crooked position.

Per, that's when he had the idea of involving 'Iron Mike' to fix his nose.

"I went up on the [Comedy Central] Charlie Sheen Roast with my buddy Mike Tyson - who I had done all kinds of drugs with in the past and even at one point been locked up in a psychiatric ward with him.

"When we were in the loony bin I was begging him: 'Mike, I'm not asking you to punch me. Just hold your fist still with your elbow locked, and I'll dive into it with my face'.

"But the timing wasn't right, until we were on the Charlie Sheen roast. And that's when I dove into Mike Tyson's fist. I broke the hell out of my nose.

"Right away blood's all coming out of it, it was the last thing that happened at the roast, and this guy comes up to the stage and he says: 'Steve-O, your nose needs to be set right now. I'm a Kung Fu instructor - I've set like twenty broken noses'."

It turns out that Tyson's 'punch' was exactly what he needed.

"And I just trusted the guy, so I sit on the stage, he puts a thumb on either side of my nose, and he just wrenches it into position, and it hurt like hell.

"But he kept messing with it until it was lined up straight.

"But when I healed from this, my nose was perfect. I don't think that doctor could have done as good of a job as Mike Tyson and the wacky Kung Fu guy."
