Fan Tried To Fight Mike Tyson After Roy Jones Jr Exhibition Bout

Fan Tried To Fight Mike Tyson After Roy Jones Jr Exhibition Bout

A fan tried to attack Mike Tyson after his exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.

'Iron' looked sensational in his first fight for 15 years, with the eight-round slugfest unofficially called a draw by the WBC judges assigned.

After getting himself in some incredible shape at the ripe old age of 54, Tyson was sharp and explosive as he rolled back the years at the Staples Center.

But things didn't all go to plan as there was a situation afterwards. TMZ Sports are reporting that while Tyson was leaving the venue on Saturday evening, a fan called him out.

The two-time world heavyweight champion, who was met by supporters and autographs hunters, is said to have responded by joking that it would not end well for him.

Then, the fan is reported to have swung a punch at Tyson and reached into his waistband as if he was carrying a weapon.

The individual in question was recognised by Tyson's team, who jumped in to diffuse what could have been a dangerous situation. The fan then scurried away.

TMZ say cops were called but by the time they had responded to the situation, nobody was there and so there was need for a report.

The most surprising bit about this whole story is that Tyson managed to keep his cool.

Infamously, one fan got all up in Tyson's face and tried to get a picture with him while the legend was watching the weigh-in for the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao super-fight back in May 2015.

The fan got an elbow to his chest and a telling off from another member of the crowd, leaving him looking very sheepish.
