Rare Footage Emerges Of Muhammad Ali Playfully Messing With Mike Tyson Ahead Of Fight

Boxing legend Muhammad Ali surprised Mike Tyson ahead of his fight and hilariously messed with him in his locker room.

Tyson, 53, was often feared for how he created an incredibly menacing aura in his dressing room before his boxing clashes.

But on this occasion, the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' was paid a special surprise from Ali, who Tyson has held high admiration for and called him boxing's GOAT.

The 'Greatest,' whose Parkinson's had visibly affected him in the clip, happily approached Tyson and playfully grabbed his arm as he pushed his fist towards his face.

'Iron' Mike eventually climbed to his feet and embraced Ali by throwing his arm around him while a photographer took a snap of the pair.

However, Ali raised his antics to the next level by sticking two fingers behind Tyson's head as he gleefully smiles.

Fans loved the embrace between the two legends and said that only Ali could be the kind of person to approach 'Iron' Mike before one of his fights.

"This is a big love between the two best boxers in history," one fan said.

The 'Baddest Man on the Planet' explained: "I always like to think I'm a bad motherf****r. A vicious motherf****r.

"I don't give a f**k, but that's the part where Ali overshines me, because I can't understand a man that's willing to die for this.

"I talked the s**t, but he's the real deal."
