Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan was once almost beaten up at a party by Mike Tyson. Jordan and Tyson were among many guests invited to Chicago Bears then-defensive end, Richard Dent's party. Tyson's co-manager was the one to write about the incident in a memoir, which had fans ask – Did Mike Tyson beat up Michael Jordan at Richard Dent's 28th 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'.
While Tyson was at the top of his tower in 1988, he was having problems with his wife Robin Givens. Michael Jordan had apparently dated Givens. Halloway added that Jordan looked like he has seen a ghost and refused to tell Tyson any details about Givens though he kept asking.
