- Bob Sapp called out Mike Tyson in a Muay Thai event in Thailand
- “The Beast” kept calling “Iron Mike” a “chicken” and even got the audience chanting it as well
Bob Sapp is still miles away from Mike Tyson but he is proving that he’s serious about taking on the former heavyweight boxing champion. The K-1 legend has been in tremendous shape lately and has already called Tyson out for a bizarre multi-men match and he is at it again with his eyes seemingly locked on “Iron Mike” alone this time.
In a recent Muay Thai event that took place at Rawai Boxing Stadium, Phuket, Thailand, Sapp made a surprise appearance and called out Tyson once again. Full Metal Dojo promoter Jon Nutt, who was one of the hosts of the event, cleared the way for Sapp, who managed to get the crowd participating and calling Tyson a “chicken” and a “punk,” per Asian MMA.
Full Metal Dojo appears to be keen on taking part in the Tyson vs. Sapp fight, having proposed to make it happen in Thailand, a.k.a. “The Land of Smiles.”
Sapp, meanwhile, backed the idea up by stating that he has been ready to dismantle “Iron Mike.”
“I’m ready been ready!!! To put the fuse out!!,” Sapp wrote on the comment section.
Sapp has been ready
In his latest Instagram post, Sapp also doubled down on his interest to fight Tyson. “The Beast” seems desperate to capture the attention of Tyson, the combat sports community, and the media as he put a lot of hash tags and mentions on it, including ESPN, TMZ, NBC and even UFC color commentator Joe Rogan.
Another thing worth noticing was that Sapp seems to be enjoying calling Tyson “chicken” as he also included it in one of his hash tags.
See the post below:
Sapp was supposed to be Tyson’s opponent in his return but was eventually replaced by Roy Jones Jr. Though he has not stepped inside the ring since 2018, the 48-year-old appears to be all-in on facing “The Baddest Man on the Planet.”
The pair has already crossed paths in the past, but despite all the hoopla, a fight between them has yet to materialize. Hopefully, Tyson finally address Sapp’s callouts sooner rather than later.
