Mike Tyson was upstaged by himself on the Tonight Show. Jimmy Fallon challenged the former boxer to play the final boss in the NES video game Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
“I would get killed,” Tyson insisted.
Sure enough the noob got creamed. Tyson ducked and weaved more in real life than in the game. He lost with a TKO (Technical Knockout) just as he seemed to be getting a hang of the controls.
Fallon assured him that is was okay because in a way he still won but the loss must have stirred up some emotions. Tyson put the host in choke hold then pretended to bite off his ear. It was the exact strategy he used to get disqualified and avoid another loss to Evander Holyfield.
Fallon recently challenged Pierce Brosnan to play his video game GoldenEye 007 with similar results minus the cannibalism.
