Apparently, Gilles Marini is a lover and a fighter.
When asked about Mike Tyson's latest drama, the Sex And The City stud told RadarOnline.com he believes he could take Tyson in an MMA-style fight.
Boxing would be a different story ("he would kill me"), Marini said, but he'd still be willing to give -- or take -- a shot.
"I'd love to get punched by Mike Tyson" Marini told RadarOnline.com at the Maxim Assassin's Creed 2 launch party in Los Angeles Wednesday night. "I wanna see if I could take it."
Marini said if it was an impromptu airport skirmish, as it was Wednesday with a paparazzo, he had a solid defensive strategy in play to unleash on the former boxing champ.
"I would outrun him," he joked.
