‘He was f–king with me’


For the primary time since a viral video confirmed Mike Tyson throwing punches at an overzealous fan on a JetBlue flight final month, the previous heavyweight champion spoke publicly concerning the incident.

On an April 20 flight, Melvin Townsend III and Tyson bought into it, as TMZ video confirmed, with Townsend allegedly throwing a water bottle at Tyson. Fees weren’t filed by the San Mateo County District Legal professional’s Workplace.

“They mentioned they ain’t gonna decide up expenses,” Tyson mentioned on the latest episode of his “Hotboxin’” podcast. “He was f–king with me, man. I shouldn’t even be taking public planes. My spouse will get mad I take public planes.”

Tyson, 55, mentioned he took footage with Townsend earlier than the incident. He didn’t sound like he wished to be touring with safety or associates to observe his again.
