Mike Tyson and Don King certainly did not have a happy reunion but still a memorable one at the IBF Hall Of Fame induction ceremony this past weekend.
As Don King approached the stage, the notorious promoter walked past ‘Iron’ Mike and touched him on his shoulder. Tyson immediately reacted by throwing a glass of water at King.

It’s no secret that after all these years Tyson still holds a grudge towards his former promoter who allegedly took millions from the former heavyweight champion.
The legendary boxer regrets his actions but Tyson still wasn’t pleased with King.
“That was me being immature. I Should not have done that,” said Tyson in an exclusive interview with SiriusXM.
“I should have not done that. He touched me. He tapped me on my shoulder. He talked on there like he was my friend. That is just bullcrap.”
