Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been filmed repeatedly hitting a fellow passenger on board a plane.

TMZ has footage of the 55-year-old throwing several blows at a man sitting in the row behind him aboard the plane flying from San Francisco to Florida.

A witness told the website that he and his friend, the person who was attacked by Tyson, initially asked ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ for a selfie – a request which he gladly complied with.

The friend is said to have continued to try to engage with the former fighter, with video showing him standing over Tyson’s chair from behind while gesturing to someone who is shooting without shots.

Tyson is said to have had ‘enough of the guy talking in his ear and asking him to relax’, according to the report.

When he refused, the witness claims that it was at that moment that Tyson began to ‘throw several blows in the man’s face’.

Video obtained by TMZ shows the moment Tyson threw blows with the man left bloody as a result.

Tyson is then said to have left the plane immediately.

Last month, Tyson was involved in an incident at a Hollywood bar where a man challenged him to a fight before pulling a gun at him.

‘Iron Mike’ calmed the situation by calmly talking to the attacker and hugging him.
