Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson is one of the many people who enjoyed Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s victory over Conor McGregor last week. But he had to enjoy the fight with an obstructed view.

The former boxing legend was seated directly behind LeBron James. And while many people would give everything to spend some time with James, he’s not the guy you want to sit behind at a sporting event.

So Tyson wound up watching the fight on the arena’s video board:

“Listen, he’s around 10 foot tall, so when he stood up, I looked up at the fight on the ceiling. They had little tubes on the ceiling. I watched it on the ceiling. I was like, ‘God, this guy’s tall.'”

Tyson may be an imposing figure, but he’s only 5’10”. James is 6’8″. From up close, you can understand how James appears 10 feet tall.
