Tyson’s Ex-Manager Drops Bombshell On Why Tyson Had A Major Altercation w/Jordan
Rory Holloway, Mike Tyson’s friend and longtime manager, recalled a time in his book, Taming the Beast: The Untold Story of Mike Tyson, where the boxing champ came toe to toe with basketball legend, Michael Jordan.

That Time Tyson Confronted Jordan Over Robin Givens:
It’s no secret that Mike Tyson had a rough time when he was a boxing champ. The former champ was once married to Robin Givens and they had a rocky relationship. When they divorced in 1989, Tyson was beside himself with grief and he struggled to deal with their separation.
Rory Holloway and Mike developed a relationship while Tyson was learning his craft under Cus D’Amato as a young teenager and Rory says he was by his side until they fell out in the late 1990s. In his book, he detailed the night he joined Tyson, Michael Jordan, Chicago Bears coach, Mike Ditka, star defensive end, Richard Dent, and boxing promoter, Don King, for dinner at a Chicago restaurant. Holloway wrote that he was trying to help Tyson deal with his separation from Givens because Tyson loved her wasn’t dealing with the divorce well at all.
Worried that things may get problematic, Holloway says he asked the waiter to limit Tyson’s alcohol intake because it was public knowledge that Jordan apparently once dated Givens and Givens was Tyson’s weakness at that time. During the dinner, Tyson confronted Jordan about dating Robin and that’s when dinner time turned into ‘the clash of the living legends.’ Check out the details below…
