Mike Tyson in Donald Trump's corner

Boxing legend box Mike Tyson has teamed up with Generation NXT and Louis Levy to encourage youth to make a difference in the world around them.

- There's no denying who boxing legend Mike Tyson is supporting in this presidential election.

"If you want to get this city out of a dump, you better vote on Trump. OK?" said Tyson during an appearance on Fox 5 morning program, 'Good Day New York.'

The Brooklyn native who now calls Las Vegas home, says he's in Donald Trump's corner, "all day, every day. Yes!"

"He's an underdog and no one likes the fact that he is winning," said Tyson who has never endorsed a candidate before. "I know Trump. This is a good thing. Vote on Trump."

'Iron Mike' as he was dubbed throughout his outstanding boxing career, adds that he won't go on the campaign trail because he's not a "campaign guy."

One thing is also certain, Tyson and his children are on opposite sides of the ring when it comes to the election.

"Most of my children are very liberal and very opinionated. Ah! Forget that," said Tyson.

Trump leads the Republican field 2-1, nationwide, with 39 percent, his highest total so far, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida with 19 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 18 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll.
