Boxing legend Mike Tyson had a medical scare, becoming nauseous and dizzy on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday, his representatives told the New York Post. 

However, his team says he is "doing great" after the incident that occurred just before landing. 

"He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare up 30 minutes before landing," his representatives said in an email to The Post. "He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him."

The email to The Post added an "air conditioning issue." 

In Touch Weekly was first to report Tyson’s scare, which they categorized as a "medical emergency."

"Mike had some kind of medical emergency on the plane and paramedics boarded," a source told In Touch Weekly. "Before the paramedics arrived, the flight issued an announcement asking for a doctor – the message even came on everyone’s screens."

That could certainly be a scary moment for all those involved who were unaware of what Tyson was going through. Luckily, it appears Tyson is doing much better. 

This is a developing story. More to come.
