Mike Tyson takes aim at haters – Sends scary warning…
While seemingly unlikely that anyone would have the courage to disrespect Mike Tyson to his face, many critics have surfaced online – And have now received a warning.
The former heavyweight boxing champ announced his comeback earlier this year. While many boxing fans rejoiced, the news did bring it’s fair share of scepticism and critique. UFC president Dana White has been strongly against Tyson’s return to boxing, pleading for the former title holder to stay retired.
“I love Mike Tyson,” White said. “I’m begging him not to fight. Mike, you’re 53, please don’t do it, please… If it comes down to where he is about to do something crazy, I might have to jump in and figure out something for him not to do it.”
While no opponent has been officially announced for Tyson’s return, fighters from the likes of Tito Ortiz to Shannon Briggs have shown interest and even reportedly been in talks to sign a bout agreement. Even UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones openly claimed to want to fight Tyson in both boxing and MMA.
There has been a great deal of more disrespectful sentiments that have emerged as well. Heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder outraged many combat sports fans after questioning Tyson’s merits, and many similar comments have arisen on message boards and comments sections all over the internet.
Now Tyson has taken to social media to adress his critics – And he did it in classic fashion.
“Social media made y’all way too comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it,” Tyson wrote.
