Legendary boxer Mike Tyson has not taken it lightly after claims emerged that he was willing to pay huge amounts of money to any man who would marry his daughter.

News came out through various websites claiming that the former heavyweight boxer was offering R154 million to any man who would tie the knot with his girl.

When Ghanian born comedian/actor Michael Blackson, born Jefari Furguson, hilariously inquired from Tyson, through his Instagram, if he could ask for the daughter's hand in marriage, he was not ready for what would come next.

Michael sent a direct message to Tyson saying he was finally ready to settle down, even going further to calling him "father-in-law".

"Is it true, I think I am finally ready to settle down." Michael said. "I don't really (care) about the money, but I will take it. Waiting to hear from you father-in-law sir," the funny man said.

He definitely was not ready for Tyson's response who came armed with information.

"Listen, this (stuff) ain't real and when I find out who started that meme I am going to knock them out. My daughter is happily in a new relationship with a nice looking man, so she is not interested in you," the ex-pugilist said.

There was definitely a lot more said in their conversation that would make one pack his bags and move to the next city as soon as possible.
