Tyson accused the promoter of stealing millions of dollars he had earned from boxing and decided to sue him for $100million.

The pair were appearing at an event at the International Boxing Hall of Fame when King tapped his former client on the shoulder.
But Tyson reacted furiously and quickly turned around before throwing water over King, with the ex-fighter angry he had pretended things between them were OK.
A day later Tyson was remorseful and regretted his actions.
He said: “That was me being immature, I shouldn’t have done that.
“But, you know, he touched me, he tapped me on my shoulder … it’s just, I don’t know.

“He talked to me like I was his friend, that’s bull****, he shouldn’t have done that, he really did me in.”
Tyson has battled with sciatica recently and the condition has prevented him from talking and walking at times.
But this week he was spotted outside a New York City restaurant with a female friend looking happy and healthy.
