What did Mike Tyson say about Hasbullah?
Hasbullah became well-known for his humorous videos on Tiktok, Instagram, and other social media sites. The Dagestani internet influencer even signed a five-year deal with Dana White’s mixed martial arts organization, becoming a promotional ambassador for the UFC.
However, during the interview with Tyson, ‘Mini Khabib’ expressed his desire to try boxing as well. When asked by Mike, where did he learn boxing, the Russian internet sensation gave a straight answer, which is from the highlights of Tyson’s matches.
The 56-year-old boxer was as always frank with Hasbullah. In response to the Russian youngster’s response, Tyson said, ‘AHH he didn’t learn well.’ implying that even though Hasbullah learned boxing by watching his videos. Yet, he will never be as good as in his ‘Kid Dynamite’ days.
In one particular segment of the podcast, Hasbullah even started sparring with the boxing legend with all of his wraths. The little youngster with a big heart started hitting the American boxer to prove a point. To everyone’s surprise, The Baddest Man on Earth briefly reverted to his former personality in order to defend himself as he grabbed Hasbullah and pretended to bite his ear.
It’s unclear if Hasbullah comprehended the reference, but everyone present while the podcast was being recorded immediately recalled the infamous incident from 26 years ago when Tyson bit Holyfield’s ear. Later, Tyson said, “He’s just a little baby to me. He’s 20, I’m 56-57, he’s a child to me”.
