Uh...Wrong Team, Mike Tyson

Ex-champ congratulates wrong NCAA women's squad on Twitter.

Published April 7, 2016

Hey, Mike Tyson meant well.

He just might have been punching his 140 characters or less too fast.

In attempting to congratulate UConn, the winners of the NCAA women's National Championship game Tuesday night, Iron Mike tweeted the wrong team instead.

It's pretty funny, considering the UConn ladies have won four consecutive national titles and 11 overall, but the Cincinnati squad he congratulated have been...well, downright awful.

Hey, honest mistake, though, Mike. It happens. Tyson has since deleted the tweet.

We would go in on Mike more for this mishap, but he's still the baddest man on the planet, so we'll exercise some chill here.
