Watch when Mike Tyson threw a punch at Floyd Mayweather on stage and Mayweather didn’t even flinch

Since the 1980s, Mike Tyson has been one of the most frightening men on the planet, however he was unable to scare Floyd Mayweather when they met on stage.
During a boxing event in late 2014, the heavyweight legend decided to test the resolve of the pound-for-pound king.

It was already known that the pair were not on good terms, supposedly stemming from a police raid back in 2001 – a time when they were both two of the biggest names in the boxing world, with Tyson more prominent than Mayweather.
A former assistant of ‘Iron Mike’, Darryl Francis, told USA Today that Tyson’s dislike for Mayweather originated from the fact that he believed Floyd called for the raid.
Police raided Tyson’s Las Vegas home in September of that year after a woman accused Tyson of sexually assaulting her on two occasions.
In his book, Tyson said a friend told him the alleged victim had also been dating ‘another prominent boxer.’
Tyson always insisted he could not prove anything and later said: “I’m good with it now. You can forgive, but you have to remember.”

13 years later when they met on stage, Tyson charged over to Mayweather and faked a punch in his direction.
Floyd didn’t flinch and they embraced, somewhat awkwardly.
Although the incident appeared jovial, comments made just a year later appeared to suggest this was not the case.
In a 2015 interview, Mayweather claimed that he was the greatest boxer of all time, over Muhammad Ali and Tyson.
Tyson took exception to the comments, not about himself, but his hero Ali.

“He’s very delusional,” Tyson responded.
“Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammad Ali, he’d be able to take his kids to school by himself.
“OK, he can’t take his kids to school by himself, and he’s talking about he’s great?

“Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people. It’s being accepted by the people. He can’t take his kids alone to school by himself. He’s a little scared man. He’s a very small, scared man.”
