Way back in the day, Mike Tyson was the reigning undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
At the time, Tyson shared a business relationship with the now-former president Donald Trump.
Donald Trump is known for once having spent eleven million dollars to host Mike Tyson vs Michael Spinks in 1988 to promote his casino business. He made a total revenue of USD 26 million on the night of the bout.
Tyson and Trump went on to build a friendship between them. The former Boxing champion even endorsed Trump’s presidential campaign in 2015.

However, that friendship has seen some turbulence in the past.
According to TrumpNation author Tim O’Brien, the former world heavyweight champion confronted the former United States President over a potential affair with his then wife, Robin Givens.
“Could I ask you, are you f***ing my wife?” Tyson reportedly asked.
According to the book, Trump said 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.”
Trump’s reply to ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson is not included in the book.
And that was not the first report about Tyson’s marriage with Robin Givens being troublesome, Tyson reported once catching Robing in the driveway with the Actor Brad Pitt.
Legend has it that Mike Tyson pulled up on Robin & Brad in the house and almost beat him up.

Tyson has recently fought fellow boxing legend Roy Joner Jr in an exhibition boxing match. And has been speculating a potential fight against the Youtuber Jake Paul .
However, the potential boxing match has apparently lost some steam as Tyson later declared that he is likely to never fight again.
