VIRAL VIDEO OF MIKE TYSON PRAYING IN SAUDI IS FAKE!
The video was supposedly taken in Saudi Arabia while Tyson was preparing for his charity boxing match against Roy Jones Jr. That is not true since the match has been postponed to November.
Amer Abdallah, boxing manager for Badou Jack and Viddal Riley, says the video was filmed recently in Big Bear California, at Tyson Ranch. You can see in the background of the video the logo of Tyson Ranch.
Abdallah says they went to Big Bear, California “in preparation for Badou’s fight November 28th… to get some light training in and break from Las Vegas for a bit.” Mike Tyson invited them to his ranch so he could watch both Badou Jack and Viddal Riley train.
He goes on further to say, “when we first arrived, I asked Tyson where I could pray. He said, ill pray with you.”
The video that went viral was posted by Badou Jack on his Twitter account and received 3 million views within 24 hours. The video was captioned “I pray alongside my brothers Mike Tyson and Omar Abdullah… Thank God.”
People on social media were speculating where the video was taken, claiming it was filmed in Saudi Arabia, but it was in fact filmed at Tyson Ranch.
