Mike Tyson confident Mayweather will “kill” McGregor

Mike Tyson Confident Mayweather Will “Kill” Mcgregor

Posted by Vicky-Leandra Barnard | new | updates | sports | Money Match | Mayweather vs McGregor | Conor McGregor | Floyd Mayweather

Former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, Mike Tyson wholeheartedly believes that boxer Floyd Mayweather, 40, will beat UFC hero Conor McGregor in the boxing match the two are partaking in on 26 August, saying "McGregor does not win in a boxing match."

Repeatedly mashing up his name as McConor the controversial boxer predicted that "McGregor is going to get killed boxing.” Tyson’s confidence in Mayweather stems from the fact that it’s a boxing match – something McGregor is not familiar with. “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?” said Tyson.

McConor put his dumbass 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.”

Confident Conor

However,29-year-old McGregor is not stepping back, if anything, he is increasing his efforts. He says he is doing it because it is what “fans want to see" and would "do record-breaking numbers." He is confident of shocking the world and predicts a knockout victory inside four rounds.

But Tyson is not completely opposed to McGregor as a fighter, and told ESPN that he believes an MMA fight between the two would be much more interesting. "If Mayweather boxes McGregor, it will be total garbage," Tyson said.

"But if Floyd goes to UFC ... now that would be interesting. I want to see an MMA fighter fight a boxer, not an MMA fighter box a boxer.

"In a boxing ring, McGregor is outmatched by Mayweather -- it won't be fair. McGregor is a colourful guy, but I'd much prefer to see where he's at in a match with UFC rules.

"Now that would have genuine intrigue and we'd wonder who is going to win but right now it's like this (squashing motion) but with those rules, it'd be totally different."

Media Circus

The fight’s promotional world-tour had plenty of controversial and shocking moments. The tour was over four days in three different countries, and reached new heights of absurdity, which Tyson found very exciting – and funny. “The whole thing’s exciting because it’s got a circus-y kind of atmosphere, because you love the fact that you see — Conor’s a character. Like, Floyd’s never met a character like this. ... ‘Boy! Come on, what are you talking about, boy?! Yeah, boy! ... What do you got a bookbag for when you can’t read?’ And I want to say, ‘hey, man, that’s disrespectful,’ but the thing is, it’s so funny, man, I can’t stop.”
