The popularity of Russian internet sensation Hasbulla Magomedov has soared to new heights in 2023, as he recently got to meet Boxing legend, Mike Tyson.
The American boxer invite Hasbulla to be a part of his podcast ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’ and as expected – hilarity ensued.
Hasbulla is known to be quite into fighting and he even signed an official contract with UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) earlier this year.
The timid Russian was born with Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD) and suffers from the condition of being unable to grow properly.
He decided to pay Tyson a visit and have a bit of a friendy ‘scrap’ with him.
In the show, Tyson decided to give the fans what they want and allow Hasbulla to have a ‘sparring session’ with him.
It was basically a case of him testing Hasbulla’s boxing skills and urging him to get a few licks on him with his boxing.
Mike urged Hasbulla to try and punch him as he covered his face with his hands, resulting in a really entertaining ‘sparring session’.
Hasbulla started getting more aggressive with each hit and Tyson found this entire thing to be hilarious.
Soon after letting Hasbulla get in a few punches, Tyson picked up the Russian sensation in his arms and started to playfully cuddle him.
What he might not be aware of is that Hasbulla is not exactly a child.
The video of Mike Tyson’s interaction with Hasbulla has, predictably, gone viral and has been a major hit on Twitter.
However, some fans believe that Tyson is probably clueless that Hasbulla is actually a grown adult and not a child after seeing him play around with him.
That is true because the Russian internet personality is actually a 20-year-old.
Hasbulla was born in 2003, but his dwarfism condition did not allow him to have the physical development that a normal person does.
Fans have found the Tyson-Hasbulla interaction to be hilarious, even comparing it with the hilarious Hollywood movie ‘Little Man’ – where the protagonist (a jewel thief) suffers from dwarfism and smacks around those who try to treat him like a child.
Hasbulla’s fans probably don’t find it to be that funny, but ‘Little Khabib’ himself doesn’t appear to have any problem with it and found the interaction with Tyson to be really entertaining.
