Mike Tyson erupts during interview after being called convicted rapist (Video)

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson went old school Iron Mike on a Canadian TV host who called him a “convicted rapist” during an interview on live TV Wednesday.

Tyson was a guest on CP24 in Canada to promote his 1-man show tour when the host asked him about meeting with Toronto mayor Rob Ford on Tuesday. The host asked Tyson about people who felt Ford being endorsed by a convicted rapist would be a bad thing for the mayor (as if Ford hasn’t done enough drugs on his own to hurt his image).

Tyson flipped out in response, calling the interviewer a negative person, piece of s—, and much more.

You can watch the video below, but beware that the language is full of cursing.

Mike Tyson and Jon Jones boxing and Tyson sets him up for sick punch (Video)

Former world heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson and current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones saw each other over the weekend and decided to have a little impromptu boxing sparring session. We’ll give you one guess regarding the outcome.

Jones posted this great video to his Instagram account and you can see Tyson throw three jabs before sneaking in a right that would have terminated Bones. The setup was as good as something seen in “The Sting.”

Tyson throws a stiff jab to the body and then throws it a second time. But on the second jab to the body, Tyson telegraphs it so Jones is only focusing on the jab, and then he sneaks in his right for a big punch that would have rocked Jones.

Tyson obviously held back on the right, but Jones and everyone “oooh’d” and “awww’d” over the Tyson punch. Even Jones admitted “he set that one up!”

Tyson was one of the most well-schooled boxers in the sport. He was smart, savvy and technically proficient. Most people look at him as just a brute, but this video shows you how he was just as much about smarts as power.

And how good was that combo? When I sent the video to Steve DelVecchio, he admitted he couldn’t even see the knockout punch. That’s that abbra-caddabra, holmes. Tyson has you focusing on one thing and forgetting about the other.
