Mike Tyson’s Take On McGregor’s Odds Of Beating Mayweather Is Pure Gold

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s tour is long gone but the fight is just about a month away from occurring. One boxing legend chimed in and he thinks that McGregor is going to get killed boxing. Oh and his name is Mike Tyson.

Have you placed your bet yet on the spectacle that is going to be McGregor vs Mayweather? I’m not sure how those things work but one would assume that there’s still time. Mike Tyson went on Barstool Sports’ podcast and not only chimed in but he went off on the outcome of the fight.

“McGregor is going to get killed boxing,Boxing? I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that’s what it’s all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy?”

Tyson continued to put more salt on it as he basically questioned McGregor’s intelligence.

“[McGregor] put his dumb ass in a position where he’s gonna get knocked out because this guy’s been doing this all his life since he was a baby. [McGregor] can’t kick and grab and stuff … He’s not going to stand much of a chance.”

But if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s the fact that this fight will actually be exciting to watch even though many hate that it’s actually happening.

“Conor is a character,” Tyson said. “Floyd has never met a character like this,” he said, launching into a parody of McGregor calling Mayweather “boy.” “I want to say hey, it’s disrespectful, but it’s so funny I can’t.”
