Only this time the boxing legend didn’t retaliate – although he didn’t look best pleased at all, it has to be said.
Iron Mike was attending a fight week event ahead of the super featherweight championship bout between Oscar Valdez and Shakur Stevenson when an overzealous fan invaded his personal space.
In new footage posted on YouTube, Tyson can be seen walking through the backstage hallways when a woman suddenly leans over the back of him and appears to try and shove her finger up his nose.

Tyson, still clearly possessing some solid reflexes, quickly dodged out of the way and stared the woman down.
“I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry,” she says in the clip.
“I didn’t mean to do that.”
You can see the full footage below.
The camera then panned out to show the girl standing there looking pretty scared while Tyson and his entourage continued on their way.
This latest incident comes just a matter of weeks after Tyson allegedly punched a fan in the face on an airplane after the bloke kept pestering him.
A video of the moment went viral online as Tyson could be see raining down a barrage of punches on the bloke’s face.
Thankfully, the woman in this newest clip wasn’t on the receiving end of some similar treatment.
Boxing fans and Mike Tyson supporters alike took to the comments section of FightHype.com’s YouTube video to have their say on the matter.
One person said: “Why do people keep trying to touch this man?! Let him do his thing and just be polite to him.”
While another added: “Her apology and statement ‘I didn’t mean to do that’ was only uttered because she didn’t get the reaction she expected or was hoping for. Shameful behaviour but not uncommon.”
As one concluded: “This is how you know we live in a crazy ass world. Why do we persist on bothering Mike Tyson? Let that man live.”

Meanwhile, it’s understood Tyson could make another return to the ring later this year, with some reports suggesting he could take on YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul.
Tyson would hands-down be Paul’s toughest opponent (even at 55 years of age), so the former Disney kid hasn’t shied away from addressing the rumours.
When asked about a potential match-up with Iron Mike, Paul told Boxing Social: “Ideally, for sure, that’s legendary.
“As Mike Tyson said on the Joe Rogan podcast, it would be one of the biggest pay-per-views of all time.
“Together when we were on the same card, we sold almost two million pay-per-views. It could be three million pay-per-views, four million pay-per-views.
“Mike Tyson like you said on the podcast, if you’re watching this, let’s make the fight happen.
“I’m ready and I think I would win, Mike thinks he would win, so let’s do it.”
