Overzealous Fan Tried Fighting Mike Tyson After Roy Jones Jr. Bout

After not fighting for twenty years, Mike Tyson almost had two fights on Saturday night, one with Roy Jones Jr. and one with a fan after...

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... Mike was leaving Staples Center Saturday night after his bout with Roy -- which was called as a draw -- and on the way out, he came across a small group of fans looking for autographs.

When he walked over to do some signing, we're told a man in the crowd yelled out to Mike ... asking why he wouldn't let the guy fight him. Our sources say Mike jokingly responded, joking with the dude that it probably wouldn't end well for him.

Next thing you know, we're told the dude swung at Mike ... and then proceeded to reach into his waistband, as if trying to pull out a weapon. Our sources say Mike's team jumped in right away before things got ugly.

We're told the guy took off -- and our sources also say some folks on Mike's team recognized him from a previous signing, where they say he also tried starting trouble.

Lets find him and do this thing for charity. Mike would hit him one time and have him pissing blood for a month.

Yeah this seems like a stalker looking to antagonize Mike into whipping his arse and collecting a check. POS.

There are some people off the street that could take a tyson punch without need for medical attention....but that number is nearly non-existent when compared to the amount of people that think that they can walk away from that encounter

I say frisk the man down, let him sign a waiver of liability, give Iron Mike a joint and then let natural consequences take its course.
