When Floyd Mayweather didn't even flinch at Mike Tyson


Mike Tyson has made it abundantly clear that he has no time for Floyd Mayweather after the undefeated five-weight champion claimed he was better than Muhammad Ali.

Infact, Tyson once claimed that a younger/prime version of himself would kick Mayweather’s “a**” in a street fight.

The 53-year-old built a reputation as the most dangerous man on the planet after a series of blockbuster knockouts against huge names in the sport, such as Trevor Berbick, Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno.

He became the youngest man to win a heavyweight belt aged just 20 when he knocked Berbick out in the second round to win the WBC title in 1986.

Mayweather, on the other hand, became a multiple world champion in five different weight classes, including super featherweight, lightweight, light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight.

But while Tyson’s strength was relentless power, ‘Money’ is often regarded as the best defensive boxer of all time.

‘Iron Mike’ stated the following regarding his ongoing feud with Mayweather: “He’s very delusional.

“Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of greatness like Muhammad Ali, he’d be able to take his kids to school by himself.

“Ok, he can’t take his kids to school by himself and he’s talking that he’s great? Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people. It’s being accepted by the people. He can’t take his kids alone to school by himself.

“He’s a little scared man. He’s a very small, scared man.”

Tyson and Mayweather’s well documented feud has often produced entertaining moments for fight fans, but for many, one altercation in 2015 is a cut above the rest.

The pair bumped into each other at a WBC convention at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas when ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ approached Mayweather on stage.

Instead of shaking his hand, Tyson faked throwing one of his famous right hands before walking away with a big grin on his face.

Fair play to the undefeated Mayweather, though, he didn’t even flinch.
