‘Big George’ explained to ESPN why he was “scared” of ‘Iron Mike’ and avoided the chance of setting up a blockbuster boxing match.
“That guy was a nightmare in the ring,” the 70-year-old boxing legend said.
“If he missed you with his left, then missed you with his right, he’d bite you.
“I didn’t want anything to do with that guy.
“He was sacred and I was glad of that.
“I didn’t want any part of Mike Tyson.”
