Mike Tyson Tried Bribing $10,000 For A Fight With Gorilla & We Don't Know What To Make Of It

Hats off to the zookeeper who did not let Mike Tyson have his way

You might have seen Mike Tyson’s Instagram pictures where he expresses his love towards exotic animals including tigers and pigeons. But did you know that the former heavyweight champion was once willing to knockout a silverback gorilla?

According to The Sun, here’s how Tyson tried to justify his actions while narrating the story,

I paid a worker at New York’s zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cage there was one big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 (Rs 7.14 lakh approximately) to open the cage and let smash that silverback’s snotbox! He declined.
