Mike Tyson once revealed exactly what happened during his infamous street fight with Mitch Green.

Tyson beat Green in their 1986 clash at Madison Square Garden in New York as he secured a unanimous decision victory.

However, they renewed hostilities two years later when they fought in a street fight.

‘Iron’ Mike knocked him out cold, but to the disbelief of the boxing legend – Green, who was apparently on PCP, rose to his feet after being dropped a couple of times.

“He [Green] started talking and saying, ‘What the f**k you doing in my hood, n****r?’ Then it was on from there,” he explained on his Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast.

“Right in the street [we fought]. Real quick.

“He was just talking a lot and I really thought he was grabbing for my pockets, so I pulled my pockets out because if he ripped my pants all the money would fall and I wouldn’t have a chance to get my money so I’d have to fight this cat right and then my money is to the wolves.

“So, anyway, that’s just when I started punching him.

“I dropped him a couple of times, but he was high on angel dust [PCP] so he kept getting back up!

“Just like Friday the 13th f*****g Michael Myers s**t! Boom, I knock him out cold! He keeps getting back up. I’m like, ‘f**k!'”

It wasn’t done there as Tyson expressed his relief that he didn’t kill Green following a second attack after his rival broke the side mirror of his Rolls-Royce.

“Then I’m in the car. He rushes to my car in my Rolls-Royce, he breaks the side mirror off,” he added.

“I got out of the car. I went out of the car and I said, ‘Excuse me one minute.’

“I hit Mitch and Mitch went down and he bent over and I grabbed his head and I hit him one time and his head hit the floor. The concrete. Boom!

“And that’s when he was out [knocked out cold].

“I got scared because he didn’t move anymore when his head hit the concrete and that’s when I just ran and got in the car and thought, ‘Let’s get the f**k out of here.’

“I thought I killed him [and] I was so scared.

“I was so happy the next day in the ‘papers they showed his eye [injury] because I knew he wasn’t dead then.”
