MIKE TYSON has opened up on his relationship with Tupac Shakur and revealed the rap legend visited him in jail.
The former heavyweight champion spent three years behind bars after being convicted of rape in 1992.
He was assigned to the Indiana Youth Center, where he would be visited by several celebrities including British boxer Chris Eubank Sr.
But Tyson revealed the most respected guest that came to see him was hip hop legend Tupac.
Iron Mike has previously admitted inmates 'got rowdy' when the California Love rapper visited him in jail.
And in a video call with lightweight champion Gervonta Davis, Tyson said: “Tupac is awesome, he is an awesome guy.
That was my man, we always hung out. He came to see me when I was in prison. He used to come visit
“If he got mad at you, he’ll be mad at you till the day he died.”
When Davis asked Tyson whether Tupac came for his fights, the 54-year-old replied: “Yeah, listen, that was my man, we always hung out.
“He came to see me when I was in prison. He used to come visit.”
Tupac was actually ringside for Tyson's victory over Bruce Seldon on September 7, 1996 hours before he was gunned down in Las Vegas.
The rapper’s murder 22 years ago is still one of the most unforgettable moments in music history.
Footage earlier in the evening came after Tyson stopped Seldon in the first round to capture the WBA heavyweight world title and showed Tupac was among the first to congratulate him.
It was the last time the 25-year-old appeared on camera as he died of his injuries six days later.
