Tyson Fury backs Mike Tyson after plane altercation, tells harasser to ‘Man up’

Boxing legend Mike Tyson was involved in an incident when he allegedly punched a man harassing him on a JetBlue flight last week.

Despite the altercation, many have defended him as videos from the scene showed that ‘Iron Mike’ was harassed by the passenger seated behind him.

The harasser also has a criminal history .

Many then justified what Tyson did, claiming the passenger got what he deserved.

One of those people is the WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, who joked he would pay to take a smack from his namesake.

In an interview with TalkTV, Fury said that you can’t mess with someone like Tyson unless you are ready to face the consequences.

“Mike Tyson is a real O.G. and you can’t mess with Mike because you don’t know what he’s going to do.”

“The fun police will be on Mike to get cancelled but how long can you prod a lion with a stick? He’s not the man you want to prod.”

“If he’s man enough to prod Mike Tyson, touch him and abuse him, then man up and take a punch in the face.”

“He should be paying Mike. Now he can say he’s been punched in the face by a legend. I’d pay for that myself.”

Tyson’s actions were also louded by famous podcaster Joe Rogan.

In an episode of his podcast, the UFC commentator said that harassing Tyson is as dumb as “headbutting a beehive.”

“It’s real simple: That dude was a douchebag.”

“He was annoying one of the baddest motherf***ers that’s ever walked the face of the Earth.”

“It’s so dumb. It’s not even kicking a beehive, it’s like smashing – it’s headbutting a beehive.”
