Tyson isn't the only celebrity who has worked with Cameo as stars like Dwight Howard, Brett Favre and Mark McGrath have been connected with the company. Cameo provides services that include celebrities making custom videos according to fans' requests.

Mike charges $300 per service to fans, and the star is in high demand. According to the publication, this could be due to the fact that many people who are self-isolating because of the Coronavirus pandemic are in need of entertainment.

"I knew there was a possibility that I could die.. during a fight. But I wasn't scared because I thought if anybody were going to die, I would do the killing."
