Mike Tyson leaves passenger battered and bloodied on flight to Florida

Mike Tyson has earned the new nickname of being 'The Baddest Man on the Plane' after a reported altercation on his flight.

A video released on Thursday saw Mike Tyson repeatedly punch a fellow passenger during a flight but no charges have been pressed.

Tyson - heavyweight's youngest ever undisputed champion at 21 - was on a flight from San Francisco to Florida when a passenger asked for a photo with him.

According to TMZ, Tyson seemed relaxed at first, allowing the passenger to take a selfie of them together. However, the American became annoyed by the man who got 'overexcited' and Tyson apparently told him to 'chill'.

The incident shows footage of the passenger talking to Tyson a row behind in business class and according to a witness, Tyson asked the person to leave him alone.

However, within minutes Tyson was seen on video running towards the passenger and was seen punching him.

"Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Mike, come on, stop that," a man is heard in the background of the video.

Another video was released after things had cooled down between the pair and it's the aftermath of the incident with blood coming from the man's head.

"My boy just got beat up by Mike Tyson,' said the man shooting the video. 'Yeah, he got fu**ed up.

Neither Tyson, Jet Blue or local police have replied to requests for comment so far.

Dana White - UFC president and good friend of Tyson - has since posted a video on social media. The footage shows a prank Tyson once played on him during a flight and it sees White forced to move out of his seat and give it up for Tyson.

"Hey dummies, for future reference, this is how you stay alive when bumping into @MikeTyson on an airplane," White said in the caption.
