Watch 'Iron' Mike Tyson elbow a fan who gets a little too close for comfort.

Mike Tyson's fight week antics have been a surprising subplot to the super fight between Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather, which takes place on May 2 at the MGM Grand. Already this week, Tyson has been very vocal about Mayweather, as he labelled him a 'small scared little man', and also stated that he feels both Mayweather and Pacquiao are businessmen that lack his killer instincts. Tyson's antics climaxed at Friday's weigh ins when he got into an altercation with a fan.

There are some things you just don't do in life and trying to wrap your arms around the most ferocious heavyweights of the past century should be on the top of that list. As Tyson sat down at the weigh ins, one fan saw it as his golden opportunity to meet the champion, but Iron Mike was in no mood for the hands-on fan, and delivered a swift elbow to the jaw for his troubles.

Iron Mike's days of controversy seemed to be well and truly behind him before his antics at the weigh-ins. In recent months, the former heavyweight champion has appeared as an analyst with GLORY, as well as made an appearance on SPIKE's ultra popular "Lip Sync Battle".
