With this comment, Tyson referred to Mayweather’s hair after Paul pulled his hat off. Fans were quick to notice that Mayweather was balding and his hair was in a mess. This made headlines since ‘Money Mayweather’ only recently switched to his new hairstyle, which attracted a lot of attention.

Mike Tyson was not the only one to troll Floyd Mayweather

Tyson followed up his comment with a laugh and showed that he saw the lighter side of the entire altercation. However, the former heavyweight champion was not the only one to troll Mayweather. All his rivals took the chance to ridicule him.

Rapper 50 Cent, who has a long-standing rivalry with Mayweather, took to his social media to troll Mayweather about his hair. Moreover, even Conor McGregor took the chance to take a dig at his old foe with a post of his own.

The reason the former multi-weight world champion’s hairstyle has drawn so much attention is that throughout his career, Mayweather always kept his hair short and never sported a hairstyle of any sort. Therefore, when he grew his hair and beard, it attracted a lot of attention from fans and critics.

However, the former champion never reacted to any of the criticism, and it is unlikely he will comment on Tyson’s comments either.
