Mike Tyson once wanted to fight an animal – gorilla!
In the 80’s, when he went to a zoo with his then-partner Robin Givens. He had the whole zoo to himself after paying them to keep it open after it had closed.
.@MikeTyson and I got together to talk about all the crazy stuff we’ve done together, including a mountain of cocaine, some time in the psych ward, and violently breaking my nose. It’s perhaps the most epic podcast I’ve ever been a part of: https://t.co/PpOrAxeMBN pic.twitter.com/Te155dFNOQ

“I paid a worker at New York’s zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin,” said Tyson.
“When we got to the gorilla cage there was one big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas.
“They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let smash that silverback’s snotbox! He declined.”
