MIKE TYSON had another run-in with a fan just weeks after the boxing legend repeatedly punched a passenger on a plane.

The youngest heavyweight champion of all time was in Las Vegas to watch Shakur Stevenson win over Oscar Valdez.

And then he was filmed taking photos with supporters when a woman appeared behind Tyson, 55.

She appeared to put her hand to his face as he posed for a photo.

And the boxing icon was visibly upset.

Alongside his entourage, Iron Mike then walked away and a heated altercation was avoided.

It comes just weeks after Tyson was recorded in an alleged attack on a plane passenger Melvin Townsend III, who is said to have molested the boxer.

The incident took place before a flight scheduled to leave San Francisco International Airport for Florida at 10:30 p.m. local time.

Police later confirmed that they were called to the incident in San Francisco after 10 pm, as the plane was preparing to take off.

They spoke to two men, who were not identified but both were released.

Townsend’s attorney, Matt Morgan, told TMZ, “Our client is a huge Mike Tyson fan.

“When Mike Tyson boarded the plane, he got too excited. At first, his interaction was cordial.

“At one point, Mr. Tyson clearly became agitated by an overly excited fan and started hitting him excessively.

“This situation could have been avoided by simply contacting the flight attendant.”

A Tyson spokesman said: “Unfortunately, Mr. Tyson had an incident on a flight with an aggressive passenger who began harassing him and threw a water bottle at him while he was in his seat.”
