Hasbulla opens door for Mike Tyson reunion after boxing legend cradled him like a baby and tried to bite his ear

Hasbulla Magomedov has admitted that he wants to meet Mike Tyson again, despite the boxing legend pretending to bite his ear during their heartwarming interaction.

MMA sensation Hasbulla, whose child-like appearance is attributed to his dwarfism condition, shot to stardom on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

The 20-year-old Dagestan native recently linked up with Tyson and is set to appear on an upcoming episode of the boxing legend’s podcast, Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson.

Tyson’s social media feeds on Tuesday shared footage of the 56-year-old American superstar’s exchanges with Hasbulla in the Hotboxin’ studio.



In one clip, ‘Iron’ Mike can be seen deploying his trademark ‘peek-a-boo’ boxing style as Hasbulla attempted to land punches on the face of the former boxer.

Tyson then wasted no time in effortlessly scooping up the 3ft 3in Russian star and pretended to bite Hasbulla’s ears, much to the delight of the people in the studio.

Twitter user John Shahidi shared a picture of himself alongside Hasbulla, AKA ‘Mini Khabib,’ and Hall of Famer Tyson.


“A couple of legends and Me [sic],” Hasbulla wrote in response to the tweet, referring to himself as the ‘GOAT’ with an emoji.

Hasbulla also opened the door for a reunion with former undisputed world heavyweight champion Tyson in the future, with the TikTok and Instagram star saying they will “do it again soon.”

“We will do it again soon. Even bigger next time,” he added in a follow-up tweet.


Following the footage of the two playfully sparring, one fan wrote: “I don’t think Mike knows how old he is.”

While another said: “Someone tell Mike that’s not a baby.”

A third added: “Mike thinks he’s a kid.”

And a fourth posted: “Now I’ve seen it all.”


One fan commented: “Mike forgot Hasbulla is like 20.”

“Mike picked him up like he a child and started giving him kisses... this a 20-year-old man, LOL,” another said.
