Mike Tyson was honoured with 10ft statue created of the boxing legend in Las Vegas.
But fans were not so impressed, believing it looked nothing like the iconic former heavyweight champion.
The statue was erected by Resorts World President Scott Sibella and restaurateur Richie Palmer as a tribute to his close friend.
Tyson, speaking in an interview, said it was a stunning surprise.
He said, “I had no idea, I am very humbled right now. I am truly grateful.”
The reformed Baddest Man on the Planet made a shock return to the ring in November, drawing in an eight-round exhibition with Roy Jones Jr, 52.
Tyson added fuel to rumours that Youtubers Jake or Logan Paul could be his next opponent, saying, “I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent but it will be a really stimulating opponent.”
