Did Mike Tyson beat up Michael Jordan at Richard Dent's birthday party?

As per Tyson's ex-manager Rory Halloway, Tyson started a conversation with Michael Jordan while he was having the drink of his choice – Long Island Iced Tea. He added that Jordan definitely did not want to start a fight with Tyson. At the time, Bears coach Mike Ditka, promoter Don King and Halloway were also present.

According to Halloway, Mike Tyson's feelings started to come out after he had a drink of his choice. He recalled looking at Tyson and asking the server to 'water his drinks down' as he could see where the conversation was headed. However, Tyson stared at Michael Jordan and asked the Bulls legend if he thought he was stupid. He compared the night to a circus.

Don King was apparently trying to change the subject while Halloway and John were trying to hold back Tyson from hitting Michael Jordan. He added that the six-time NBA champion was 'dressed sharp as always' and could not wait to get out the place 'fast enough'.
