Very few people have personal stories about Michael Jackson, but those that do always have the most interesting kind—Mike Tyson included. During a stop by Hot 97, Tyson explained his relationship with the late pop star (around 8:20 mark) and detailed what their first encounter was like.

After one of Jackson’s concerts in the late ’80s—a time when Tyson was at the height of his career—Jackson turned to Tyson and simply said, “Do I know you from somewhere?” Tyson laughs it off saying he’s still not sure if Jackson was trying to play him.

Throughout the long conversation, Tyson touched on many topics. He discussed why he wants to vote for Donald Trump, his meetings with JFK jr., his boxing career, his spirituality, and much more.
