Information gathered by Pinaxonline.com indicates boxing champion Mike Tyson allegedly wanted to beat basketball icon Michael Jordan at a dinner in America 32 years ago. Reports has it that the incident which occurred in 1988 between Tyson and Michael Jordan actually happened at the birthday party of NFL play Richard Dent.
Reports on Sportsbible indicates that Rory Holloway was one of Mike Tyson’s managers at that time revealed what really happened that day. It was disclosed that Jordan dated Tyson’s wife Givens and that was the whole issue between the legends.
As Holloway tells it: “Tyson’s sitting there with his drink of choice, a Long Island Tea, and when he drinks his real feelings come out.
“I’m telling the server to water his drinks down ’cause I see where this is going. Mike stares across the table at Michael Jordan. He says, ‘Hey man, you think I’m stupid? I know you f**ked with my bitch.
“Jordan looks like he just seen a ghost. ‘I know you messed with her,’ Mike says. ‘You can tell me.'”
Reports has it that Michael Jordan remained calm and did not say a word when Tyson was angry and wanted to fight.. I guess he didn’t want to mess with a boxer at his peak of his career.
