Former world box champion Mike Tyson visited the Romanian Parliament on Wednesday. He is in Romania to attend the conference launching an energy drink.

The 50-year-old boxer visited the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, being welcomed by former tennis player Ilie Nastase and a group of Romanian lawmakers.

Tyson said he is very impressed with the building, while stating that politics seems “nasty” to him for the only that matters is the winner.

The American ex-box champ revealed that he also had visited Constanta and that he knows Romanian boxer Lucian Bute.

While visiting the Parliament’s building, Tyson gave autographs and accepted to be photographed with several people, most of them public servants in the Chamber and the Senate. He toured the Palace of Parliament while accompanied by senators, deputies, clerks and journalists.

Tyson also wanted to see the Senate’s plenary hall, but the sitting had already ended for 20 minutes when the former world champion arrived in Parliament.

The Senate Speaker Calin Popescu Tariceanu had said on Tuesday that inviting Mike Tyson in the Senate is not honorable for the legislative institution, arguing that those who invited the boxer “didn’t think too much”. He added that he prefers great athletes who had an irreproachable conduct in their private life.
