Boxing: Mike Tyson wasn’t shocked by Will Smith slap: It was interesting

Just about every person in the public limelight has given their view on Will Smith‘s now infamous slap on Chris Rock at the Oscars, and Mike Tyson is the latest to have done so.

It seems to take a lot to shock the former heavyweight champion, who wasn’t too taken aback by the incident when asked about it on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“That was interesting,” he said.

“I don’t know, if he [Will Smith] felt it was necessary to do it, if he’s not shocked, I’m not shocked.”

Kimmel then brought up the recent altercation between Tyson and a passenger, after the latter had pestered the former boxer for a picture before Mike responded with a series of punches.

“I was wrong, it should never have happened. I got back into my primitive child state,” he said.

“I was just irritated, high and pissed off.”
