Mike Tyson Immobilizes Shark During Dive as Part of Discovery's 'Shark Week'

It's not every day you hear Mike Tyson of all people utter those words, but that is exactly what the former heavyweight boxing champion said during a Sunday appearance on Discovery Channel's Tyson vs.

The show, which was part of the network's annual Shark Week, "pitted" Tyson against sharks in a three-round format.

Tyson worked with scientists in the Bahamas to get more comfortable in a location that features lemon sharks, reef sharks, bull sharks and more.

The first round was a cage dive with lemon sharks, and it was clear he was scared from the beginning.

Tyson is not the first notable athlete to go up against a shark as part of Shark Week, as Olympic legend Michael Phelps lost a virtual race to a great white shark in 2017.
