The former boxing heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson, is known for his incredible boxing achievements and the treacherous outlook that has terrorized the combat community for years. Not everyone dares to look Tyson in the eye, let alone say something about him. However, rapper Bossie has dared to do the latter and has shocked the world with his statement.

In the first season of Tyson’s Hotboxin’ podcast, Boosie connected with the heavyweight great and talked about several things. However, he passed some disturbing comments that escalated among other parties, and ‘Iron Mike‘ clarified that he had to step in to prevent a physical altercation.

Despite that, Boosie claimed he ‘The Baddest Man On The Planet’ didn’t intimidate him. He made a comment on VLAD TV with djVlad. The rapper said, “Really, really shut the f*** up Mike Tyson. Oh yeah, that isn’t that big. Boy Tyson would have hit me, bump, I think I would have killed Tyson and stood over me saying that they did it right there. We killed him. He hit him, we killed him,”
