Mike Tyson "scared" of 'The Only Way Is Essex' pair

The Only Way Is Essex stars James Argent and Joey Essex claim that former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson was "scared" of them.

The Only Way Is Essex reality stars James Argent and Joey Essex have claimed that former American boxer Mike Tyson was "scared" when he bumped into them.

The retired ex-heavyweight champion met the duo while they were filming part of the ITV2 reality television show in Las Vegas.

"He didn't want to know us, he didn't want to have a photo, but then we said, 'Hey, we're the Essex boys!" Argent told the Daily Star.

"He was like, 'What's that? Essex gangsters?' And he was a bit scared of us. Then we took a picture with him and it was all sweet after that."

In June, Tyson revealed that his one-man stage show Undisputed Truth would be turned into a television special for US network HBO.
