“We’re live on LIV in Miami! WOW!” Flair wrote on Twitter.

Tyson was scheduled to speak at Benzinga’s Capital of Cannabis Conference after-party around 8 p.m. on LIV, according to TMZ. The boxer was initially scheduled to speak at the marijuana industry event at 12:05 pm, but he had to cancel “due to a flight change,” the outlet reported.

Earlier in the day, Tyson was seen happily waving to fans as he arrived at his hotel in Miami.

A video posted by TMZ Sports on Thursday appeared to show Tyson punching a man sitting in a row behind him at San Francisco International Airport. According to the report, the man continued to harass Tyson after he told him to “calm down.”

The San Francisco Police Department told the outlet that two people believed to be involved have been taken into custody and one person was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. They added that the person being treated “provided minimal details of the incident and refused to further cooperate with the police investigation.”

A witness on the plane told TMZ that the former heavyweight champion was initially cordial to fans asking for pictures, but a man continued to speak in Tyson’s ear, which seemed to irritate him before the punches flew.
