Mike Tyson gets Pissed Off at Reporter! By Johnny Benz (Nov 4, 2009) DoghouseBoxing
In a recent interview with a UK reporter, Mike Tyson became irritated by a question. Speaking to reporter Dermot Murnaghan for Sky News (UK), Tyson who was answering questions in part to promote his upcoming tour of Britian became agitated by the reporter.
Tyson was asked a series of tough questions. Some of the questions related to Tyson's conversion to his religion of Islam and as well as his feelings on Barack Obama as the first black president to head the White House.
It seemed things got ugly however when the Sky reporter went in to Tyson's violence prone past. The Sky reporter discussed how Tyson himself had actually claimed in the past that he craved the thought of punching an opponent's nose "into his brain". The reporter who kept pushing, claimed to Tyson that he was interested in seeing if Tyson had changed as a person.
"I want to see how much you've changed," said Murnaghan for Sky News, adding: "and whether you're a different person." Tyson who was clearly angry at this time in the interview, angrily told the report that he wasn't sure if he was a different person, stating: "I don't know if I'm a different person. Change comes in time." Tyson clearly still angry went on to add: "You’re starting to irritate me now… I guess I did change because I'm not assailing you!"
The interview almost ended as a Tyson representative tried to stop the interview, but the reporter kept Tyson on for a little longer.
My Thoughts: Trust me when I say, the old Tyson would have done something along the line of smacking that Reporter upside the head or at least ripped apart the TV set. I call the new Tyson a big improvement. I wish reporters would stop trying to push Tyson.
