Photo: Sun Ming Ming makes Mike Tyson look small

Following the famous Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas, boxing legend Mike¬†Tyson took off for China where he joined the cast of upcoming Chinese film ‘IP Man’ for a remarkable press conference in a boxing ring. To have a movie about martial arts hold a press conference in a boxing ring is beyond me, I guess that’s just the power of Iron Mike Tyson.

Sun Ming Ming, a 7’9″ basketball giant who went undrafted in the 2006 NBA draft, is a cast member of IP Man 3 (you might remember his role as the giant Chinese guy who kicks Chris Tucker’s ass in Rush Hour 3) along with Tyson and a CGI version of Bruce Lee. Sun Ming Ming is three inches taller than Yao Ming, so if you think Yao Ming makes you look small try standing next to Sun Ming Ming.


The film is scheduled for release over Chinese New Year 2016.
