Tyson offered ten thousand dollars to fight a gorilla

The North American tried to bribe a worker from a zoo

Mike Tyson has already abandoned his boxing career, but the fighting 'bug' is still in his body and makes headlines again in some newspapers around the world, all because, at the age of 52, he tried to fight a... gorilla.

It was the former fighter himself who confirmed the story. It all happened at a New York zoo in the United States. After the park closed, Mike Tyson tried to get an employee to open the doors only for himself and his wife, so that he could then take action with the gorilla, weighing between 150 and 250kg.

"I tried to pay an employee of the New York Zoo to reopen the door only for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cages, there was one bullying other gorillas. They are very powerful, but have a child's look. I offered the employee $ 10,000 to open the cage and let me beat the gorilla, but he refused", the former boxer confessed.
