Mike Tyson once confronted Donald Trump for a heated exchange and asked, ‘are you f**king my wife?’
TrumpNation author Tim O’Brien claims the former world heavyweight champion confronted the United States President over an affair with his wife at the time, Robin Givens.
“Could I ask you, are you f***ing my wife?” Tyson reportedly asked.
O’Brien quotes Trump as saying after the meeting: “Now, if I froze, I’m dead… you would have zero chance.
“Here’s the heavyweight champion of the world, and he’s a solid piece of fu**ing armour.”
The billionaire’s reply to ‘Iron Mike’ is not included in the book and it’s unknown how true the claims are.
Tyson and Trump have a long history together with their first interaction coming in the late 1980’s.
It was Trump who bid a staggering $11 million to host Tyson’s fight with Michael Spinks at the Atlantic City Convention Hall, adjacent to his own Trump Plaza in New Jersey.
Tyson was 21-years-old at the time and the fight became famous for his spine-tingling ring walk en route to a first round knockout victory.
Their friendship exists to this day despite the affair incident and ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ even backed Trump in his successful 2016 presidential campaign.
Tyson, meanwhile, made a sensational return to the sport as he fought fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr in November 2020.
He’s since been linked with Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis, but it appears another foray in the squared circle seems unlikely.
Though never count out ‘Iron’ Mike.
