Former heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson, believes Conor McGregor will not last a second in the ring with Floyd Mayweather.
The two fighters are scheduled to meet at the T-Mobile Arena in the city of Las Vegas on the 26th of August and Tyson is of the opinion that he might not come out of the fight alive.
“McGregor will be killed in the ring by Floyd.” He said during an interview on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast. Initially, I was mad because it was like pitching two different fighters together with different rules. That’s like the rules of MMA against that of boxing. But since it’s the rule of boxing, he is going down.”
McGregor Is Dumb
“McGregor has put himself in a dumb and difficult situation and he will definitely get knocked out because Mayweather has been boxing all his life. He cannot use his feet and grab like it is the norm in MMA. He doesn’t stand a chance at all.”
Tyson all through the interview referred to McGregor as McConor and stated that the only chance that he had to make it a contest has been destroyed by the rules.”
“McGregor made the biggest mistake in the whole history of boxing,” Tyson went further.
However, Tyson stated that the fight will be exciting and also said that he loved the whole circus ring to it.
“Conor is a crazy character and Floyd has not anyone like him before.” He said as he mimicked the moment Conor called Mayweather boy. “Although it was disrespectful, it was quite funny to me.
