Mike Tyson tells incredible story of what happened when one of his tigers attacked a trespasser

Former boxing heavyweight champion Mike

There aren't many people on this planet quite like Mike Tyson.

The man has lived a simply bonkers life and the more we seem to hear about it, the more unbelievable it gets.

There seems to be a new bit of Iron Mike madness around every turn - in fact, you almost expect to be shocked every time he opens his mouth nowadays.

In an Instagram live chat with rapper Fat Joe, Tyson recounted another incredible moment of a woman suing him for being attacked by one of his pet tigers. 

Didn't know Tyson had pet tigers? Well, that's a story for another day.

During the live chat, Fat Joe asked Tyson about the rumours that his tigers had escaped and gotten hold of one of the neighbours, however, the former heavyweight world champion was quick to set the record straight.

"No, no Joe, that's not what happened," he began.

"Somebody jumped over my fence and got into the inhabitant with the tigers and started playing with them. The tiger didn't know the lady so it was a bad accident."

Joe then asked Tyson if the woman in question had tried to sue him over the incident, to which Tyson responded:

"Well, they tried to until they found out that she had jumped over the fence and trespassed."

However, upon seeing what his beloved pet had done to the lady, Tyson, in his immense generosity, gave her $250,000 anyway.

"Listen, when I saw what the tiger had done to her hand, I had a lot of money back then, I just gave $250,00 or whatever it was because she was just f***** up Joe."

Astonishing - where does one even begin when trying to break that down.

 Just having a posse of tigers is incredible enough, but then being able to give the trespasser a huge mountain of cash for her trouble is just something else.

There is no doubting it, the world would be a darker place without Tyson in it.
