The infamous Oscar incident involving Will Smith and Chris Rock is slowly showing signs of staying buried. Meanwhile, Rock once jokingly revealed that former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson allegedly pushed supermodel Naomi Campbell out of a car.

Rock was talking at Campbell’s ‘No Filter with Naomi‘. Moreover, the duo was talking prior to Tyson‘s highly anticipated exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. In conversation, Campbell mentioned meeting Rock and Tyson at a club in East Village, presumably during Halloween.

Moreover, the duo also mentioned that they are looking forward to Tyson’s then-upcoming bout.

Tyson and Murphy were at an event honoring singer Sammy Davis Jr. In the event, Tyson gave a tribute, saying, “Stay tuned for more of the Sammy Davis Jr. Tribute honoring the one heavyweight I would never dare to step into the ring with. Sammy, you’re truly the undefeated champion.”

In fact, Tyson was referring to the comedy skit where Davis Jr. faced Wilt Chamberlain in the ring. Murphy, in turn, proceeded to make a hilarious Tyson impression. He imitated Tyson’s voice and said, “Hello ladies and gentlemen, Sammy, I would like.”

A self-conscious Tyson was then seen covering Murphy’s mouth and dragging him off the stage.
