Mike Tyson is not letting his airplane beatdown stop him from talking to a bunch of bigwigs in the weed biz at an industry event … TMZ Sports has learned.
Our sources say Tyson is slated to speak at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference Afterparty at LIV in Miami at around 8 PM ET on Thursday night … despite bloodying a man in an altercation on a plane in San Francisco on Wednesday night.
What’s interesting … Tyson was initially scheduled to talk at the Cannabis Capital Conference — an event for those in the weed industry — at 12:05 p.m. ET with Ric Flair, but event organizers told conference-goers Mike had to cancel on that “due to a flight change.”
No word on if Tyson will address the plane incident at the afterparty … or stick strictly to marijuana talk.
As we reported, Tyson was captured on video throwing a flurry of punches at a man on a plane at SFO on Wednesday after the passenger had appeared to annoy him.
Footage shows following the blows, the man was bleeding from his forehead. A witness on the plane told us the man required medical attention and went to the police.
For his part, sources close to Tyson claim the man was extremely intoxicated … and wouldn’t stop provoking the boxer prior to the outburst.
Unclear if police are investigating the incident … we’ve reached out to law enforcement, but still no word back yet.
