In what many viewed as a solidarity shout-out, world renowned pugilist, 'Iron' Mike Tyson during a radio interview on Tuesday morning announced that he was worried about troubled rapper Chris Brown.
The 47-year-old retired boxing legend was on the Scott and Todd Morning Show in New York City, telling the pair that he was an admirer of the 24-year-old singer.
Brown was arrested early on Sunday morning after he allegedly punched a man and broke his nose, and was released on Monday after the assault charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor.
'I really like and admire that little guy but what he really needs to understand is that eventually, if you keep doing that stuff, people will turn on you,' Tyson said.
While Brown has been selling out arenas, Tyson said he also once performed before sold-out venues with a bag stigma attached to his name.
'I'm just worried about him, because he's really a sweet kid.
'He's probably going through some overbearing pressures and if he keeps getting violent cases - he was arrested for this, assault here, assault there - they're going to put him somewhere where that's all they do, assault people,' said the boxing champ, who served a three-year prison term after being convicted in 1992 of rape.
