Legendary boxer Mike Tyson believes he would whoop Conor McGregor’s a** if they two were to square of in the ring. Tyson made this startling claim during an interview with talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
McGregor and Tyson have praised each other in the past. McGregor is a known admirer of Tyson. Moreover, Mike praised the notorious one for going 10 rounds with arguably the best boxer of all time.
Mike Tyson makes a bold claim
Despite his ripe old age, Tyson believes he can easily beat Conor McGregor. Tyson also revealed he still has an edge over opponents and his boxing IQ is just as good, despite spending nearly 15 years away from the sport.
However, his recent training videos have brought a sense of nostalgia. His classic combos and chiseled physique have certainly rolled back the years.
Iron Mike is currently training with legendary MMA coach Raphael Cordeiro and has looked in amazing shape during the build-up for the fight.
Roy Jones jr looks sharp as well and has posted several videos on social media. Jones jr last fought in 2018, where he won the WBU cruiserweight title.
The fight has generated plenty of hate online as well. Many feel the two shouldn’t step in the ring, due to their age and potential health concerns.
Tyson has generated plenty of hype in anticipation of his return against Roy Jones jr. The 54-year old will mark his return after nearly 15 years. Tyson left the sport after a shocking loss to Kevin McBride in 2005.
Iron Mike has witnessed several ups and downs since then. He went bankrupt in between and had several legal issues.
However, he’s made a stunning comeback since and heads a multimillion-dollar weed company.
The fight is set for 8 rounds, with the boxers potentially wearing bigger boxing gloves and headgear.
