Mike Tyson is positive that Conor McGregor is 'going to get killed boxing' Floyd Mayweather


The “world tour” is over, and we’re now closing in on a month until Conor McGregor’s Aug. 26 fight against Floyd Mayweather.

 
 
 
 
 

By now, most of the boxing world has weighed in on the fight. Very few think McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, has any chance of handing Mayweather the first loss of his career.

We can count Mike Tyson in with that crowd.

Tyson blasted the fight itself and McGregor — referring to the UFC star as “McConor” on two occasions. Tyson said in an appearance on the Pardon My Take podcast:

“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 put his (expletive) 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 can’t kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.”

And well, Tyson is going to be right.

Mayweather has been boxing his entire life. He’s arguably the best boxer of this generation, and McGregor has no experience as a professional boxer. He talked his way into the fight, and he continued to talk his way around Mayweather in the world tour.

No amount of criticism will change the fact that both fighters will cash in on a ridiculous pay day, and millions will watch this fight. That’s why this fight is happening.
