According to witnesses per TMZ, a man and his friend noticed the famed fighter was on their flight and took a selfie with him. Later, the friend, who happened to be in the seat just behind Tyson, tried to have a conversation with him. Despite being asked to stop, the friend continued to badger Tyson, who then whirled around and started punching him.

This wasn't Tyson's first brush with a violent temper. The boxing legend has a history of domestic abuse and anger issues. In the late '80s, during an interview on ABC's 20/20, Tyson's ex-wife Robin Givens admitted "he's got a side to him that's scary," alleging he would "push" and "swing" at her.

In 2014, Tyson opened up about making an effort to change and the role his wife, Lakiha Spicer, played in helping him become a better person.

"If I wasn't married I'd be very different. I'd still be that violent schmuck because that's all I once knew – how to hurt people," he admitted in an emotional interview with The Guardian. "I used to do all that stuff and I never cared about the repercussions. But I've surrendered now … but I'm just happy I'm not that same person."
