Mike Tyson vows not to take public flights after plane fight


And with the incident now thought to be closed, Tyson has told his Hotboxin’ podcast: “Yes, they said they ain’t gonna pick up charges.

“He was f*****g with me, man. I took pictures with [him]. I shouldn’t even be taking public planes. My wife gets mad I take public planes.”

Video shows Tyson punching the fan ahead of the JetBlue flight from San Francisco to Fort Lauderdale in April.

TMZ reported that the interaction with Tyson and the fan was cordial at first, with a witness saying he greeted the boxer and got his taken picture with him along with one of his friends.

But soon, Tyson wanted the man to be quiet and when he kept talking, Tyson stood up, turned around and punched him several times in the face.

“Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Mike, come on, stop that,” a witness can be heard saying in the viral video.

Another video from the flight shows the moments just after the altercation, with the man filming the video saying “my boy just got beat up by Mike Tyson”.
