I can’t believe someone would have the balls to try and steal from Iron Mike Tyson while he was still in the room, but a would-be burglar came close to becoming Mike Tyson‘s 45th official knockout.In a scene eerily similar to one from 2009’s “The Hangover,” a man broke into Tyson’s room at The Cosmpolitan of Las Vegas Hotel Saturday night while the ex-heavyweight champ and his family slept, TMZ.com reported.
Tyson woke up to the noise and the light from the unidentified man’s flashlight and the burglar immediately fled the room, according to the gossip site. Nothing was reported stolen.
“We have received a report of an incident that is currently under investigation,” a representative of the hotel told TMZ. “As always, guest safety is of the utmost importance.”
Tyson made a memorable cameo in “The Hangover,” when the boxer comes after the bumbling gang played by Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms after they broke into his Las Vegas home and stole his pet tiger.
