Mike Tyson offered zoo keeper £9,000 to fight a silverback gorilla in a cage

MIKE TYSON reportedly offered a zookeeper £9,000 to let him fight a huge silverback gorilla during a romantic night out with his ex.

The boxing legend became the youngest heavyweight champion aged 20 back in 1986.

And “The Baddest Man on the Planet” clearly fancied his chances of going toe-to-toe with anyone… or ANYTHING!

Tyson, 53, revealed his stunning offer came after he bribed a worker to open the zoo back in the late 80s so he and then wife Robin Givens could enjoy a private and romantic stroll among the animals.

But he suddenly got an idea as they approached the ape enclosure and spotted a dominant alpha male bullying the rest of the submissive group.

He attempted to offer the cash to the zookeeper to open the cage so he could go in there and punch the gorilla.

Tyson explained: “I paid a worker at New York's zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin.

"When we got to the gorilla cage there was one big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas.
