Mike Tyson, wearing brightly colored pants, appeared with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday night to talk about things like his first meeting with Justin Bieber, his recent issues with addiction (he's 20 days sober now, he said), The Hangover, fashion and how "creepy" he found Thailand to be.

But our favorite conversation came about his tiger:

Conan O'Brien: It's funny because ... you owned a tiger when you were in the movie and then I remembered in real life you own a tiger ...

Tyson: Yes, I've owned quite a few.

O'Brien: You've owned tigers ...

Tyson: Yes, I did.

O'Brien: OK, so you owned a tiger. Did the tiger ever hurt you in any way? Those are kind of dangerous ...

Tyson: Not intentionally ... On one occasion I went 'give me a kiss' and she put her head in and boom I had gold teeth back then and she knocked my teeth out because her head is like concrete.

O'Brien: You went to kiss your tiger and it knocked out your gold teeth? These are problems I've never had ...

O'Brien: Did you kiss your tiger often?

Tyson: I slept with my tiger. My tiger is my buddy.
