In the new book “Taming the Beast:  The Untold Story of Mike Tyson,” author Rory Holloway (written with Eric Wilson) spilled quite a bit of tea about the former boxing champ, and tongues are wagging.

The New York Post has excerpted bits of the tell-all, and Holloway, a friend and former manager of the heavyweight legend, shared a juicy tidbit involving a heated confrontation between Tyson and NBA great Michael Jordan.  Reportedly the two legends nearly came to blows over Jordan’s alleged sexual dalliances with Tyson’s ex-wife actress Robin Givens (pictured).

According to the excerpt, Tyson had been dining with Jordan, Holloway, former NFL player, coach and commentator, Mike Ditka; former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Richard Dent and the famous boxing promoter, Don King.  The subject of Givens came up during the dinner.  Givens was Tyson’s first wife and their  tumultuous marriage from 1988 to ’89 had become heavy fodder for the media.

The social gathering took place after Tyson had divorced Givens and he had reportedly been downing a few cocktails and feeling blue about the failed relationship.

Holloway writes:

“I’m telling the server to water his drinks down ‘cause I see where this is going. Mike stares across the table at Michael Jordan. He says, ‘Hey man, you think I’m stupid? I know you f—-d with my b—h.’

“Jordan looks like he just seen a ghost. ‘I know you messed with her,’ Mike says. ‘You can tell me.’

“Jordan, it’s obvious he just wants to get up and run. He wants no part of this. Mike turns to Ditka. ‘Man, you think somebody scared of you, all that racist s–t you been talking?’ He says to Dent, ‘Y’all scared of this damn white man, Richard? He ain’t nobody. You gonna let him talk that way?’

“It was a circus, for real, that night. Don King trying to change the subject. Me and John trying to hold Mike down. Mike telling everyone he’s going to bust Jordan’s ass. Jordan’s dressed sharp as always and he can’t get out of there fast enough.”

Holloway’s book features a number of riveting stories about the champ (including a sexy scandal involving Naomi Campbell and a bathroom) that will make it hard for you to put it down!
