Mike Tyson pushes off disrespectful fan over selfie during Wilder vs Fury clash

- Mike Tyson was at the stands when Tyson Fury battered Deontay Wilder at the MGM Grand Arena last weekend

- The British fighter defeated the American counterpart to become the new WBC champion

- The 53-year-old was however irritated with a fan who tried taking a selfie with him while speaking with another guest

Boxing legend Mike Tyson was said to have expressed his disappointment towards one of the fans who tried taking a selfie with him last weekend.

The 53-year-old former heavyweight champion was among the important personalities present at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas for the epic rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

A fight that ended in favour of the Briton after handing the 'Bronze Bomber' his first-ever defeat in his career.

However, despite retiring from the sport about a decade ago, Tyson seems more like a fighter than a gentleman who came to enjoy the bout according to Daily Star.

Tyson was engrossed in a conversation with an unknown person when the fan pushed his luck to take a picture with the American, but the former boxer got physical with him.

The publication claims Tyson could have gotten angry after the man who wore cowboy hat attempted to interfere with his conversation.

A voice in the background of the video says: "Pushed somebody out of the way. Mike Tyson just pushed somebody. Oh, s***. Oh, wow."

The 'Baddest Man on the Planet' supported Fury to come out victorious in the encounter which was staged early on Sunday.

After the fight, the 53-year-old also showered encomiums on the Gypsy King who knocked Wilder out in the seventh round.

He said on social media: "Dominant performance champ, Tyson Fury."

Meanwhile, there are indications that both Wilder and Fury might face off for the third time, but this time, the Bronze Bomber would be the challenger.

A rematch clause can be activated by the Bronze Bomber, but Anthony Joshua's promoter is adamant the fans want an all-British contest, not another fight involving Wilder.

"I don’t think anyone wants to see a third fight because it was that conclusive but we will see if he exercises that clause. I probably expect Wilder to do that – I don’t see where else he has to go," Hearn told Talk Sport.

"But our mandatory [IBF] challenger, Kubrat Pulev, is also promoted by Bob Arum, like Tyson Fury, so there is a very easy manoeuvre there if Wilder doesn’t accept the rematch to go straight into this undisputed fight in the summer. That is what we have to push for initially."
