Mike Tyson appeared on Good Morning Britain yesterday to promote his upcoming fight against Roy Jones Jr but rather left viewers worried and concerned with his one-word answers and stand-offish demeanour.
Viewers took to Twitter to express their concerns, some of the tweets were,
“Oh dear, this interview with Mike Tyson isn’t going quite the way you wanted it to I suspect #gmb”- Gary Deane (@GazDeane)
“Struggle watching this interview with Mike Tyson #gmb”- James Jolly (@JamesJolly96)
“Christ Mike Tyson shouldn’t be doing any more TV interviews never mind getting back in the ring; this is painful #gmb”- Stuart Akister (@StuartAkister)
However, the 52-year-old boxer has addressed the awkward chat, he reassured the presenter and his co-host Susanna Reid.
Mike Tyson took to Twitter to explain that he is currently in Los Angeles which is eight hours behind the UK and had to stay up very late to appear on the show.
Hey mate @piersmorgan @GMB @susannareid100 and UK. I tried to stay up late for interview but fell asleep and like a lion I'm hard to wake once asleep. Training hard and going to bed early. I had no monitor so I couldn't see you guys and forgot to look into camera.

Piers quickly replied as he shared the tweet on his feed and added, “No problem, Champ. We could see you were a bit weary! It was very late in LA. Appreciate this message as some viewers were concerned”
