Tyson Photog Speaks: Blood Everywhere

The photographer who ended up on the wrong end of Mike Tyson's fist says Mike got in 4 good punches and blood was gushing "like a water fountain."

Pap Tony Echevarria claims:

- He wasn't disrespectful or aggressive
- Mike was initially in a good mood but turned sour when the pap asked about his wife
- Tyson became more agitated when he couldn't find a bathroom and saw the photog shooting him

As we previously reported, Tyson and the photographer were both busted for battery.

That guy is lucky Iron Mike didn't bust his face. I don't believe the photog was hit 4 times by Mike, he would look alot worse. If this guy was stupid enough to piss off a former heavy weight champ who is bi-polar and a little pissy then that's on him.

F this maggot. These vermin hang out at LAX and that makes things unsafe for passengers. 1st amendment sure but abusing that causes problems for the traveling public. With airport security maxed out looking for grandmother terrorists, who needs to worry about some bottom feeding parasite taking pictures. I hope it hurts a lot. Tyson was right.
