Legendary boxer Mike Tyson got annoyed past the point of no return during a commercial flight, and it was caught on video and shared on Twitter by TMZ Sports.
After an annoying passenger repeatedly harassed ‘Iron’ Mike, the former heavyweight champion reacted violently and rained down punches on the man, who ended up with bruises and lacerations on his face. You can watch the whole situation develop below.

On Twitter, professional fighters shared their thoughts on the matter.
This is the saddest thing about this whole incident by far.
The uber-legalistic society creates people that do any & everything “within the law” to harass/attack knowing they haven’t broken the law & your only recourse is more law & legalese when they should be smacked. https://t.co/khVv0iuI1J

If y’all see a fighter out and about don’t taunt them or annoy them. All you’re doin is clout chasing for social media or tryna get a lawsuit going. Leave them alone unless it’s all positive. Let them live #miketyson

If people were allowed to smack people upside the head when they deserved it more often, the world would be a better place. https://t.co/CMKuzqVgYC

Just a light thrashing for being an absolutely disrespectful & annoying prick. Tyson could have really hurt him bad if he had intended to.
But hopefully this guy will rethink how he acts to others & in public. In my opinion, this is the simplest & best outcome.
Act right. https://t.co/cSxRrIfRP9
