Tyson has already thrown his weight behind Trump.

During a trip to Washington, D.C., Tyson, who once infamously bit off Evander Holyfield's ear in the ring, told TMZ Sports in a video posted Thursday he’s rooting for Clinton so she can go face-to-face with Trump.

“It’s got to be Trump and Hillary in the finals,” Tyson said, when asked by TMZ if being "Brooklyn tough" is enough for Sanders, a Vermont senator, to be president.

Clinton and Trump are the front-runners in their respective parties.
