Mike Tyson throws an elbow at a fan who gets too friendly trying to take a selfie

Sometimes I think people forget that for a long period of time Mike Tyson was the baddest man on the planet. At this point, he does movies and TV shows where he has fun and makes jokes, but never forget that at heart he's a fighter.

This fan forgot that and got way too handsy with the former heavyweight champ at the weigh-in for Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Instead of just leaning in and taking a pic, the fan decided it was smart to put his arm around Tyson and pull him in close for the pic. Tyson, who had no idea this guy was doing this, understandably took offense and elbowed the guy twice in the chest to get him off.

Honestly, that was the best case scenario for that guy, who easily could've ticked the champ off enough to throwing a punch or two. Luckily for the fan, he goes home with a story of getting elbowed in the chest by Tyson rather than getting destroyed by Tyson and having to eat through a straw for a month.
