When faced with Mike Tyson’s punch, most individuals would flee the other way. However, Jackass actor Steve-O is not scared.
Tyson was nicknamed ‘the baddest man on the planet’ during his prime because of his vicious ring style and ability to knock out practically every opponent he faced.
Steve-O, who is notorious for risky actions like leaping into Tyson’s hand, recounted the incident on the podcast Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.
Steve-O said, “At the Charlie Sheen roast, I talked Mike into letting me dive into his fist and we broke the f*** out of my nose, Mike and I.”
“Then some kung fu dude set it straight on the spot and I got a Mike Tyson, kung fu nose job for free.”

Steve-O isn’t the only one who has shown an interest in fighting Mike Tyson lately. Tyson Fury recently called out the former undisputed heavyweight champion for an exhibition match.
Tyson Fury spoke on Good Morning Britain to proclaim his retirement from professional boxing. However, he also expressed a desire to compete in exhibition fights.
“I’m gonna do some exhibition matches, they’re not real fights, but with entertainment factor. This is not professional boxing, this is pure entertainment. Hollywood style-entertainment, that’s all it is, nothing more, nothing less.”
“The difference with an exhibition is you’re not there to win or lose, you’re there to enjoy, have a good time and put on a show for the fans. And in an exhibition you can fight old-timers, famous people, whoever you want.”
“So I’m looking at fighting Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Frank Bruno, The Rock Dwayne Johnson, that’d be fantastic. You never know who we could be fighting on one of these shows, but that’s what I’m hoping to do in the upcoming future.”
A battle between Mike Tyson and Tyson Fury isn’t totally out of the question. We have already seen Mike Tyson return to the ring for an exhibition match with Roy Jones Jr in 2020, so stay tuned.
