Mike Tyson couldn’t get enough of watching baseball star Jose Ramirez knock opposing player Tim Anderson down with a brutal punch.
The boxing legend was recently at a signing event where he was shown the viral clip of Cleveland Guardians star Ramirez battling Anderson of the Chicago White Sox.
Tyson was immediately absorbed, shouting, “Ooh, ooh, ooh.”
When the punch landed, Tyson loved it, as he spun around in his chair and bumped into the table.
“He hit him with his eyes closed,” Tyson remarked with a big smile on his face.
That fight took place last month when in the bottom of the sixth inning, with the White Sox leading 5-0, Ramirez slid to second base and was tagged by Anderson.
Ramirez was immediately furious and the two men clashed.
Anderson threw a few punches, but Ramirez was ready to go, as he ducked his head down and unleashed some hooks wildly.
As the other players tried to separate the two men, Ramirez caught Anderson with a sharp right hook that knocked him to the ground.
Both men were ejected from the game, and the White Sox won 7-4.
Both men were subsequently banned, with Anderson given five matches and Ramirez handed a three-match suspension.
Taking to social media to apologize, Ramirez said Anderson refused to acknowledge it.
He posted, “Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a trouble seeker.
“It’s part of my personality and my behavior to give 100% every day on the pitch to help my team and to try to be an example for the younger players in my team.
“I tried to contact him directly and apologize, but I haven’t received a response.
“I want to reiterate my apologies for my behavior and as always my goal is to help my team win and reach the playoffs.”
