Watch Mike Tyson Recite Justin Timberlake's 'TKO'

Boxing legend Iron Mike meets JT's newest single ... and the results are hilarious.

On Tuesday (October 29), MTV News sat down with the legendary Mike Tyson to talk about his upcoming HBO special "Undisputed Truth." More on that soon, but since Justin Timberlake's killer video for "TKO" hit the same day, we just had to get the boxing icon to do the chorus.

Reading through the lyrics once, Tyson wondered aloud, "I don't understand this. He's singing this to a girl?" But he gamely agreed to recite the chorus anyway. After a spirited recitation of the lyrics, Tyson laughed, still expressing confusion over what, exactly, they meant. (Hit play on the embedded vid and see for yourself.)

So what do you think, does Justin know what he's talking about with fighting? MTV News asked the veteran pugilist. "I bet you if he sings it, it'll sound a lot better than me reading it," Tyson joked right back.

"Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" comes to HBO on Saturday, November 16 at 8 p.m.
