MIKE TYSON won over every Manchester United fan in the world after revealing he'd never even heard of rivals City.
The boxing legend, 54, was taking part in an interview with fierce City fan Ricky Hatton on The Clare Balding Present when he announced it.
And now, ahead of the Manchester clubs going toe-to-toe in their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday, Tyson's hilarious gaffe has gone viral again.
In 2013, with Hatton talking about his family's City roots, Tyson hilariously said: "Sorry to interrupt, what's the difference between Manchester City and Manchester United?"
Hatton and Balding quickly attempted to explain they're two different clubs from the same city who are 'sworn enemies'.
A baffled Tyson continued: “I’ve been in Manchester for an extended time period and I’ve by no means heard of Manchester City.

“This if the first time I'm hearing about Manchester City."
Tyson has previously been pictured holding a Man Utd shirt, most-famously while training in Las Vegas in 2000.
That January, Tyson fought – and beat – Julius Francis at Manchester's MEN Arena to take his career record to 47-3.
The American boxer made his eagerly-anticipated comeback to the ring in November as he drew with fellow veteran Roy Jones Jr.

And Tyson has confirmed he plans to step back into the ring again in 2021.
During a recent Instagram Live with Patrick Mouratoglou, the Hall of Famer revealed he intends to take part in another exhibition later in the year.
When asked if he'll lace up his gloves again, Tyson replied: “Yeah, absolutely. It’ll be better this time.”
Tyson, who retired from professional boxing in 2006, thoroughly enjoyed being back in the ring.
He added: “It was interesting. I felt really good, I felt confident. I felt that I could do it again.”
But Iron Mike has sparked rumours he could make a switch to MMA for his next fight after being filmed sparring in the octagon.
Tyson has also been turning his hand to acting again and appeared alongside Game of Thrones star The Mountain in the incredible trailer for upcoming movie Desert Strike.
