Unseen Footage Of Mike Tyson In Altercation With Fan Trying To Sneak A Cheeky Selfie

Unseen Footage Of Mike Tyson In Altercation With Fan Trying To Sneak A Cheeky Selfie

Mike Tyson was involved in an altercation with a fan after they tried to snap a selfie with the boxing legend at the Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury rematch.

The 53-year-old ex-boxing superstar was in attendance for the epic showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

And Tyson, who was backing Fury to win the fight, was honoured ahead of the fight alongside fellow boxing legends Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis.

However, footage has now emerged online of 'Iron' Mike appearing to lose his patience with a fan trying to take a cheeky selfie with him.

YouTube user Sound F-EX uploaded a short clip of Tyson in the crowd with members of his entourage.

And one fan wearing a cowboy hat approached Tyson and tried to take a selfie with him, only for the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' to visibly mouth something before pushing him away.

Those seated around the two immediately stood up after the incident escalated, but Tyson looked on at the man as he made his way out of the area.

One man, potentially the fan filming the clip, can be heard in the background saying, "Pushed somebody out of the way. Mike Tyson just pushed somebody. Oh, s**t. Oh, wow."

The fan appeared stunned that Tyson had pushed him after attempting to take a photo with the living legend.

And fans have been critical of his decision to take a selfie without Tyson's permission, but they did point out that he appeared visibly shaken by the altercation.

One fan wrote: "Imagine he pushed him back."

While YouTube user Dannymac _e3 added: "That look of fear the cowboy had when he see who pushed him. He did not want any tyson smoke [sic]."

Another fan argued: "These selfies can be a pain in the a**e .Ppl should asses the situation of the celebrity before hand is he stressed or ok, but that guy was imposing himself into mikes pathway [sic]."

A fourth said: "Anyone else here a 'oh s**t' said in unison as soon as he pushes him."

Fury put on a masterclass performance as he sensationally stopped Wilder to capture the WBC championship last Saturday.
