Mike Tyson botched shoutout to UConn women’s basketball team


Boxing legend Mike Tyson was kind enough to take a moment on Tuesday night to congratulate the University of Cincinnati women’s basketball team on winning four championships in a row.

Yeah, you read that right.

As many of you know, the UConn women won yet another championship, capping an undefeated season with a blowout win over Syracuse. Tyson tried giving them a shoutout, but he botched it.

The former heavyweight champion deleted the message when he realized his mistake, but he didn’t bother sending another tweet.

Fortunately — or unfortunately — for Iron Mike, this is not the most embarrassing thing that has happened to him in the past several months. That painful mishap he had with a hoverboard (video here) still takes the cake.
