Mike Tyson was not impressed with one fan who attempted to take a selfie with him and made his feelings known prior to Tyson Fury's win over Deontay Wilder.
The former heavyweight was in attendance at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to watch what was one of the most eagerly anticipated rematches in years.
You would've expected the 53-year-old to be in a relaxed mood given his status as a spectator rather than a fighter nowadays – but that was not the case as revealed by a video clip.
While having a conversation a fan attempt to snap a quick selfie with 'Iron Mike' before Tyson got physical with him.

Deontay Wilder set to trigger Tyson Fury rematch clause – as he blames ring walk costume for defeat
The Gentleman was wearing a cowboy hat and may have been interfering with a conversation Tyson was engaged in which led to his angry reaction.
A voice in the background of the video says: "Pushed somebody out of the way. Mike Tyson just pushed somebody. Oh, s***. Oh, wow."
Before Fury's win over Wilder, Tyson was one of several boxing legends to be honoured with Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis also in attendance.
The 'Baddest Man on the Planet' was backing Fury did win the heavyweight clash on Saturday night and was full of praise for the Gypsy King after he stopped his opponent in the seventh round.
He said on social media: "Dominant performance champ, Tyson Fury."
There is now a good chance Wilder's camp with request a trilogy fight having failed to get the job done both times to far.
A rematch clause can be activated by the Bronze Bomber, but Anthony Joshua's promoter is adamant the fans want an all-British contest, not another fight involving Wilder.

"I don’t think anyone wants to see a third fight because it was that conclusive but we will see if he exercises that clause. I probably expect Wilder to do that – I don’t see where else he has to go," Hearn told Talk Sport.
"But our mandatory [IBF] challenger, Kubrat Pulev, is also promoted by Bob Arum, like Tyson Fury, so there is a very easy manoeuvre there if Wilder doesn’t accept the rematch to go straight into this undisputed fight in the summer. That is what we have to push for initially."
