Watch: Mike Tyson talks about Ronda Rousey, Muhammad Ali on Conan

Thursday January 21st, 2016

Mike Tyson stopped by Conan Wednesday night to chat about pigeons, Muhammad Ali and his recent battle with a hoverboard. He also imparted a little bit of wisdom to Ronda Rousey, comparing her recent loss to Holly Holm to his infamous knockout by Buster Douglas.

Tyson explains that getting over a loss is harder when you are as successful in a sport as he and Rousey have been, and recommends getting back in the swing of things to overcome the defeat.

The former heavyweight champ also told an amazing story about a promise he made to Muhammad Ali as 14-year-old to avenge his loss against Larry Holmes, which you can watch on the Team Coco website.
