It’s safe to say that is Mike Tyson was a gambling man, he’d put his money on Floyd Mayweather for his upcoming boxing fight against Conor McGregor. Tyson doesn’t believe McGregor has a chance to beat the undefeated boxer regardless of the all the trash talk McGregor has been doing.
“McGregor is going to get killed 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? McConor [sic] put his dumba*** 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. McConor [sic] can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.”
McGregor is considered one of the better fighters in the UFC. He has a record of 21-3, but his accomplishments don’t translate to the boxing ring, and neither do the MMA rules. Although they are both violent sports, Floyd being a boxer and this event being a boxing match opposed to a UFC fight, the rules are in Mayweather’s favor.
