Boxing legend Mike Tyson is having the internet buzzing after appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Show adorably dressed as a giant bumblebee.
Muhammad Ali might sting like a bee, but ‘Iron Mike’ proved he could to sing as one, humming the words “I feel beautiful”, while happily wagging her bee doe – apparently as a gift for Kimmel.
The 55-year-old, who appears to be living his best life, posted the short clip to his Instagram page, tagging the American talk show host and adding the caption, “That’s not your beeznus.” Despite being dubbed ‘the baddest man on the planet’, Tyson is doing remarkably well and social media couldn’t get enough of his hilarious bee behavior.
“This has to be one of the best videos on the internet,” wrote one of Tyson’s followers.
“Dance like a butterfly, sting like a bee! How can you not love Mike Tyson? What a legend,” said another, while a third posted, “Imagine him knocking someone out in this suit haha.”
“Mike in his element and I’m so happy about it,” commented a fourth.

Tyson became the youngest world heavyweight champion of all time at just 20 years old in 1986, striking fear into the hearts of his opponents with his wild boxing style. He was first beaten by Buster Douglas in one of the most shocking upsets in sports history in 1990, after which his career took a turn for the worse.
Two years later, he was convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison, but was released on parole after just three years. From there he won two of his four heavyweight titles but was then beaten for the second time in his career by Evander Holyfield.
In their rematch, Tyson infamously bit off part of Holyfield’s ear, for which his was disqualified. His last heavyweight title fight was in 2002 against British champion Lennox Lewis, with Lewis knocking out Tyson in the eighth round.
Tyson officially retired three years later, but made a sensational return to the ring in 2020 to take on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.
