Frank Warren has slapped former boxing superstar Mike Tyson, labeling him a “terrible manipulative bully.”

Warren, the legendary promoter and boxing manager, was responsible for promoting Tyson’s fights in Britain.

After a new series titled “Mike,” depicting Tyson’s life, was launched last week by Disney-owned streaming service Hulu, Warren was scathing in his assessment of the 56-year-old when questioned.

Frank Warren called former boxing superstar Mike Tyson a ‘terrible manipulative bully’

“He’s a terrible manipulative bully,” Warren said the guard. “He couldn’t intimidate any fighter who beat him.

“He can intimidate anyone he’s hit. If he can’t intimidate you, that’s a killer to him.’

Warren, who was once infamously beaten by Tyson in a hotel room after a disagreement between the couple over Tyson’s jewelry bill, showed no love was lost between the couple.

He added: “He’s a compelling character, and he’s one of those guys who makes you feel like he’s misunderstood, but when you go into it, he’s what he is, which is a thug and a bully and a misogynist.

“He’s very homophobic when he calls someone names or yells at them.”

Tyson, who finished his career with a record of 50 wins and six losses, was a multi-time world champion, but Warren has criticized his attitude and believes Tyson could have been even better.

Warren said: “He was an incredibly exciting fighter – menacing, devastating – but that was short-lived, and then he just ruined his career.

“He didn’t live the life he should have. You could be sitting with him right now and you would think this guy is totally misunderstood, he’s a good guy.

“I’m telling you, he’s very manipulative.”
