Watch Mike Tyson mix up his words and nearly floor Don King in this hilarious video.

The year is 1995. After more than four years out of boxing due to a prison sentence, Mike Tyson was back with a fight against heavyweight boxer Peter McNeeley. As with all boxing matches, especially involving Mike Tyson, there was some much needed promo and Mike was at hand to advertise the match for pay-per-view. Except it took a little longer than anticipated. Cue verbal fumbles, wrong words and a punch in the ribs by Tyson on Don King that had him fall rather theatrically. You’re probably thinking a punch from Mike Tyson would have you on the floor too but watch and you’ll see what I mean.
