MIKE TYSON joined Tyson Fury for a heavyweight dinner last night before the legend began WAVING A SWORD around.
Iron Mike and the WBC world champion Gypsy King are both in Saudi Arabia for the celebrity grudge match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.
And the two icons joined forces in the Middle East on Friday to enjoy a bite to eat before being handed swords to wave around with some of the locals.
The Baddest Man on the Planet shared footage of the get-together on Instagram, and hilariously captioned it with: “Two Tyson’s are better than 1.”
It comes after Tyson, 56, spoke about his excitement over the fight, despite not knowing who Tommy was.
The American has been a fan of Paul’s polarising boxing career and even had him on his comeback undercard in 2020.
But Iron Mike was unaware of who Fury was, despite being the younger brother of world champion Tyson.
He told talkSPORT: “Hey, listen, I only saw Paul, I’ve never seen Fury fight. I don’t know, I never saw Fury fight.”
Paul, 26, knocked out ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, the night Tyson returned to the ring for an exhibition bout.
Has since gone 6-0, beating ex-MMA champions in Ben Askren, 38, Tyron Woodley, 40, and Anderson Silva, 47.

Fury, 23, will be the first recognised boxer Paul has so far faced, but his 6-0 record was hailed by the man who famously bit a chunk out of Evander Holyfield’s ear.
Tyson said: “Well, he does have boxing experience.
“He boxed before because it shows in his fights and he’s won against people that he shouldn’t beat.
“And listen, I don’t think they brought him here to lose either, because he’s good for fighting and is good for boxing.
“He makes more money than the champions of boxing. So he’s an enigma.”
Meanwhile, John Fury, the father of Gypsy King and Tommy, is also in Saudi preparing his son for the bout.
He revealed previously how he had named Tyson after the former world champion, and Iron Mike thanked him for the gesture when they came face-to-face this week.
John told Tyson: “Here he is, my main man. This is him, the man who I named my son after.
“Best heavyweight of his era, best young man ever born. Michael Tyson.”
The veteran responded: “Your son has taken the title to the next level.”
John replied: “He will not let your name down Michael.”
Before Tyson added: “Thank you and I appreciate that. I didn’t want to say it in public but I’m honoured. Thank you, really.”
