Boxing legend Mike Tyson allegedly ordered a hit on a drugs kingpin after learning that he had a $50,000 bounty on his own head, a court has heard.

A dispute is said to have arisen between Tyson and supposed criminal boss Damion Hardy after the former heavyweight’s friend Darryl Baum was shot dead in 2000 in a drug-related feud.

And giving evidence at the trial of Hardy – who is charged with six murders and racketeering – Allen ‘Boo’ Bryant and Shelby ‘Moo’ Henderson said they were against killing Tyson despite a $50,000 (£34,000) contract on his head.

‘Moo spoke the loudest, saying Mike Tyson was Muslim and we shouldn’t kill a Muslim,’ said Bryant.

Hardy, whose street name is ‘World’, allegedly employed Bryant and Henderson at his New York drug firm, Cash Money Brothers.

He is said to have gone on a killing spree to avenge the murder of his brother.

Tyson has previously denied that he put a hit out on Hardy.
