Tim O'Brien who is the author of the book TrumpNation has recounted how boxing legend Mike Tyson years back accused former US president Donald Trump of having affairs with his ex-wife.

During his active boxing days, Mike Tyson was one of the best boxer on earth and the American had the record of becoming heavyweight youngest world champion.

During that time when Mike Tyson was shinning, he enjoyed a healthy relationship with the former US president Trump whom he first encountered early in his boxing endeavours.

According to the report on Sportsbible and Mirror, Mike Tyson angrily confronted Trump over an affair with his ex-wife Robin Givens to whom he was married to for a year from 1988.

And what was the response given by Donald Trump?

The reports did not provide the answer Donald Trump gave Mike Tyson after was accused of having affair with former wife of the boxing legend.

In fact, Mike Tyson was even said to have supported Donald Trump's ambition to become US president years later.

Anthony Joshua rubbishes £15m pay off claim to step aside for Fury vs Usyk fight

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Anthony Joshua said on Monday he was in control of his destiny, insisting reports he had agreed a £15 million deal to step aside from his world heavyweight title re-match with Oleksandr Usyk were false.

Several stories in the United Kingdom's national press suggested that the British boxer was willing to allow Ukraine's Usyk to fight Tyson Fury in a unification title bout.

Usyk gave a boxing masterclass in recording a unanimous points victory to deprive Joshua of his World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) belts in front of the dethroned champion's home crowd at London's Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.

By extending his unbeaten professional record, Usyk also delayed the prospects of an all-British unification bout between Joshua and Fury.
