Mike Tyson wanted to beat up…WHO?!

There wasn’t a bigger sports star in the 90′s than Michael Jordan. 

There wasn’t a bigger name in the sport of boxing in the 90′s than Mike Tyson.

Well apparently, the biggest boxer of the 90′s wanted to beat up the greatest basketball player that’s ever lived!

That’s right, Mike Tyson once confronted Michael Jordan.

Why?

It was over Tyson’s ex-wife Robin Givens.

In a book by Tyson’s former friend/manager Rory Holloway, he recalled a time when the boxing star confronted NBA star Jordan over Givens in front of Don King, Chicago Bears player Richard Dent and coach Mike Ditka.

Holloway says the boxer stares across the table at MJ and said, “Hey man, you think I’m stupid? I know you f*cked with my b*tch.”

Holloway said “Jordan looked like he just seen a ghost.” 

Don King helped change the subject, and soon after, Jordon left.

Let’s be honest, If this beast was staring at you:

I’d be gone too!!
