The former "Baddest Man on the Planet" Mike Tyson once bit off a rival boxer's ear during a fight, so when he confronted Donald Trump, the 45th ex-US President wasn't sure how to react.


Mike Tyson and Donald Trump have a friendly history together. This was excluding a moment when the controversial boxer challenged the former "Apprentice" boss over his then-wife, Robin Givens.

Timothy L. O Brien wrote "TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald." In the book, he explores Trump's life, intending to supply readers with a glimpse into the reality behind the public persona.

Trump was once the advisor to Tyson, also financing his iconic fight with Michael Spinks at $11 million. However, it is alleged that at one time, the two had a strained exchange, O Brien reportedly quoting Trump:

"He [Tyson] said, 'could I ask you, are you [expletive] my wife?'"

He was fearful of the pro boxer, Trump expressed. He was wary of freezing up and displaying any sign of alarm, believing that he may not survive to tell the tale.



Tyson was reportedly neurotic when it came to his now ex-wife Robin Givens. Trump was purportedly not the only individual who suffered from his suspicious wrath.

Trump suggested that she [the rape victim] was to blame.

Allegedly, Trump never provided Tyson with an answer. However, at that moment, it is said that he was incredibly wary of the man's high status in the boxing world and the level of strength that he carried.



Beyond Trump's apparent verbal sparring match with Tyson, author O'Brien shared many alleged details about him that didn't paint the twitter-happy man in the best light. In an audio sample from his book, the narrator expressed:

"Somewhere in the world, there is an old burdened mirror that the Hollywood aspirant has gazed into time after time."

The author's research also purportedly exposed Trump's business tycoon image as a farce. He ended up being taken to court for this apparent expose.

Trump has been involved in more than one controversial situation that did nothing to enhance his reputation. One involved, the now cannabis-businessman Tyson, the two crossing paths once again.

In 1992, Tyson was found guilty of rape. Trump suggested that she was to blame, mentioning that she was in the boxer's hotel room willingly at the time of the offense.

After some time, Tyson is now re-sparking his career as a professional boxer. Last year, a match between himself and Roy Jones Jr. was ruled a draw.

This was the first time Tyson had stepped back into the ring since 2005. Initially, he had the advantage over his opponent, but the fight didn't end as planned.
