Chuck Norris is one of the greatest karate action stars of all time as he is featured in a number of movies where he continually kicks ass after ass.
He’s a feared man with highly technical skill and the internet has had a blast with pumping up this guy to astronomical levels of total fear and bad assery! While naturally every mortal on the planet is afraid of Chuck Norris, there happens to be one guy, who is not. And of course, that guy is Mike Tyson.
The story goes that Mike Tyson became suspect of Norris trying to hit on his first wife, Robin Givens. It was a member of the Tyson entourage that tells the not-so-pretty story!
It’s Tyson’s former bodyguard known as “T” who had heard rumors that Norris had been making calls to the Tyson household. His “in” was a role he wanted to give Givens in the then upcoming movie called Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection.
Finally Givens did accept to do lunch with Chuck, but soon after told bodyguard T that Norris was being pretty suggestive, and downright creepy, in the remarks he made towards her. Tyson was away and training for his fight against Spinks, so T was looking after the house, and looking after Robin.
Here’s how the story goes as told by bodyguard T:
“Mike was in the zone at the time and all he did was train, train, train. How you think he ended Spinks like that? Mike was a machine at the time. So he didn’t know – or really care – what Robin was doing. Even so, he had me stakeout the house and watch her. He was still pretty jealous,” says T.
“Anyways, Robin tells one day that that karate dude with the beard kept hassling her and wanted her in his movie, but was being creepy about it. I didn’t wanna bother Mike with it, so I decided to go over to the motherf*cker’s house and tell him to step off.”
“I don’t know how Mike found out about it and that I was going to talk to Norris – maybe Robin told him, God knows – but he did. Just as I’m about to drive over to the guy’s place, Mike turns up at the house and he is PISSED!”
Then T talks about how both of them raced over to Norris’ house. Turns out Chuck wasn’t home. So T comes up with an idea. Let’s invite Norris to the Spinks fight!
It’s June 27th, 1988. Backstage at the Convention Hall in Atlantic City is Chuck Norris, who apparently was all high and mighty and very excited about being an actual VIP guest of the number one boxer in the world. But little did he know why exactly he was invited!
He then goes to visit Tyson who is preparing for the bout.
Here’s T describing what went down:
“I told Mike I’d handle it, but he wanted to do it himself, you know Mike. Anyways, Norris comes in all smiles and sh*t. ‘Hey champ, blah blah blah, whatever…’”
“Mike didn’t even lose his sh*t, he just smiled at Chuck and went to shake his hand. As he grabbed the dude’s fist, he drew him in real quick, headbutted him and the motherf*cker dropped like a sack of cold shit, man. Out COLD.”
“‘Try n’ f*ck my b*tch, I f*ck your WORLD!’ Mike shouted at him and calmly sat back down and started bandaging his hands ready for the fight. I had to carry Norris out under a God damn blanket and pay the guy off. Mike then f*cked up Spinks in one round. Crazy, crazy sh*t…”
