Mike Tyson revealed in an interview that he was left devastated when he saw his ex wife Robin Givens on the arm of Brad Pitt 20 years ago.

The former boxing champion was talking to US chat show host Conan O'Brien about his reaction upon seeing his ex-wife get out of a car with Pitt.

"I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle," the Daily Mail quoted Tyson as saying.

Tyson appeared on the late night program to promote his tell-all one man show 'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth' which opens in Las Vegas this month.

Despite their high-profile split, the pair were still spending a lot of time together and it was while waiting outside Givens' house one day that the boxing legend saw her return home with the movie star.

"As I go to my car she drives up with the handsome Brad Pitt.

"It just totally overwhelmed me.

"I had no energy to fight," he said.

Givens and Tyson had a famously short-lived marriage in the 1980s which was marked by violence.

When the pair married in 1988 the boxer was estimated to be worth 50 million pounds.

Givens filed for divorce three months later alleging spousal abuse and was reported to have received a divorce settlement of over 10 million dollars.
