Mike Tyson Said He'd Have 'Kicked Floyd Mayweather's Ass' In A Street Fight

Mike Tyson Said He'd Have 'Kicked Floyd Mayweather's Ass' In A Street Fight

Although he may be older and more humble than he was in his younger years, Mike Tyson has made some bold statements about rival Floyd Mayweather.

As part of GQ Sports' Actually Me series, Tyson was fired questions, one of which asked him to predict the outcome of a street fight between the pair when he was in his prime.

The 53-year-old former heavyweight champion said: "I think I would really kick Floyd's ass in a street fight. It wouldn't even be no match.

"But probably if I was his size in the ring, he would outpoint me. He has a really good technique for his style, he's really great at what he does."

The pair have a history, not least when Mayweather declared him as the world's greatest ever boxer.

At the time, Tyson said: "Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammad Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself.

In 2015, Mike also said Mayweather was 'very delusional', shocked that he would even consider saying that he was better than Muhammad Ali.

But Mike is much too busy with his other ventures to consider training for something like a fight and he's living a very different lifestyle nowadays to what he did in his boxing heyday.

In 2016, the former heavyweight champion set up his own company, Tyson Holistic Holdings, through which he sells an array of cannabis-based products and merchandise.

The following year, Tyson Ranch was developed; however it is not yet fully built.

He hopes that when it is fully complete, the 407-acre site in Southern California will be home to a whole host of tourism attractions, including a huge lazy river and the Kind Music Festival, which he and his business partner Rob Hickman describe as 'the Lollapalooza of cannabis'.

The first Kind Music Festival has already been held on the site in fact, back in February. The fest gives people the chance to enjoy marijuana, listen to music and learn about the health benefits of the drug.

Speaking to Cannabis Tech Today, Tyson said: "I thought about how much good I could do by helping people with cannabis. It was a no-brainer.

"I've been fighting for over 20 years, and my body has a lot of wear and tear. I had two surgeries and I used marijuana to calm my nerves, and it would take the pain away... But before, they had me on those opiates, and those opiates had me all screwed up."
