It has been reported by ‘TMZ’ that Mike Tyson was seen punching a man in the face multiple times on a flight last evening.

Apparently Tyson was aboard a JetBlue flight which was bound from San Fransisco to Florida.

According to a witness, Mike Tyson took a selfie with the passenger, and was cool with him, but the said passenger proceeded to non-stop talk to ‘Iron Mike‘ from his seat. When the fighter asked him to chill, a warning the passenger didn’t heed, things took a turn for the worse.

Sources close to Tyson have indicated the passenger, who was seated behind Tyson on the plane, was extremely intoxicated. While initially the boxing legend was patient with the over zealous fan, eventually he’d had enough and went into action with his fists to quiet the man.
