This was when Steve-O opened up about Tyson breaking his nose. Steve-O said, “I broke my nose twice. And, one time was on Mike Tyson’s fist.”

He further detailed the scenario prior to Tyson breaking his nose. He said, “Bam Margera broke my nose on the set of Jackass 3D. And, it healed all f*cked up. I waited two months to go to a nose doctor, and the guy was like, I can fix it but it’s been like two months. It’s healed that way.”

However, Steve-O added that the doctor informed him he would have to re-break his nose to fix it. He was taken aback by the doctor’s statement. Surprisingly, Steve-O knew just the person for the job. Steve-O said, “At the Charlie Sheen roast, I talked Mike into letting me dive into his fist. And, we broke the f*ck outta my nose. Mike and I, and then some Kung Fu dude came and set it straight on the spot.”

Meanwhile, Tyson assured him that his nose looks beautiful.
