Following Mike Tyson's fight with Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday night, a fan took a swing at him. It all went down as Tyson was leaving the Staples Center.
As Tyson was signing autographs for a group of fans one of them decided to take a swing at him. The crazy fan is said to have then reached into his waistband before Tyson's security broke things up.
From TMZ Sports:
When he walked over to do some signing, we're told a man in the crowd yelled out to Mike ... asking why he wouldn't let the guy fight him. Our sources say Mike jokingly responded, joking with the dude that it probably wouldn't end well for him.
Next thing you know, we're told the dude swung at Mike ... and then proceeded to reach into his waistband, as if trying to pull out a weapon. Our sources say Mike's team jumped in right away before things got ugly.
We're told the guy took off -- and our sources also say some folks on Mike's team recognized him from a previous signing, where they say he also tried starting trouble.
It's the perfect 2020 story. Nothing can go off without a hitch. Something crazy like a guy swinging on Mike Tyson had to happen.
