Mike Tyson opted to fight a gorilla for $10k
Former American heavy weight champion Mike Tyson has disclosed he once offered a zoo attendant $10,000 so that he will be allowed to fight a gorilla.
The former world champion disclosed that he came across a gorilla bullying its counterparts in a zoo whiles on a tour and that got him furious.
According to him, he wanted to come to the defense of the weaker gorillas hence he asked for the cage to be opened so that he can land some punches on the bully gorilla.
However, the zoo attendant couldn’t grant his request even though he offered a huge sum of money for that.
“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” Mike Tyson
His fight with a gorilla would have been one of the world’s greatest records as no one has been able to do that yet.
