PopEater reports that when discussing his and Robin’s 1988 interview with Barbara Walters, where Tyson claimed she was telling lies, the boxer grew angry. "At that particular moment, I truly wanted to sock her, but I just didn’t do it," he told Oprah to laughter in the audience. "I have socked her before, and she socked me before, as well.
