Mike Tyson sat down with The Daily Beast to discuss why he is probably the only Muslim-American who is here for Donald Trump.

The boxer explained that he was friends with the business mogul long before his political tyranny.

“We’re really good friends,” Tyson says of Trump. “We go back to ’86, ’87. Most of my successful and best fights were at Trump’s hotels. He didn’t manage me, though. He was just helping me with my court case.”

Aside from friendship, the heavy-weight feels there are similarities between him and the reality star:

“We’re the same guy,” he continues. “A thrust for power, a drive for power. Whatever field we’re in, we need power in that field. That’s just who we are,” he told The Daily Beast.


Tyson continues, going into a rant about how of all the political contenders, Trump shows him the most respect, that’s why he is getting his vote:

“That shit is the real deal. Listen: I’m a black motherf*cker from the poorest town in the country. I’ve been through a lot in life. And I know him. When I see him, he shakes my hand and respects my family. None of them—Barack, whoever—nobody else does that. They’re gonna be who they are and disregard me, my family. So I’m voting for him. If I can get 20,000 people or more to vote for him, I’m gonna do it.”

So he respects you, but not the rest of America, so he deserves to be president? We say, nah bruh. Have several seats.
