VIDEO: Mike Tyson admits he couldn't beat his video-game self

Despite being one of the most intimidating and feared boxers of his generation, Mike Tyson wasn’t very good as his virtual self -- in his own video game -- Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!

Tyson admitted as much to a roving TMZ reporter, saying, “No [I couldn’t beat myself], I couldn’t even beat Glass Joe,” who was a 38-year-old, 110-pound, gangly boxer from France. 

Here's Glass Joe, evidently Tyson's biggest nemesis.

“I’m a late-bloomer," he said. "I started playing games in 2006, 2007. …Tour of Duty. I play the zombies, I like the zombies.”

Oh, Iron Mike. Never change.
