Mike Tyson claims Conor McGregor ‘is going to get killed’ boxing Floyd Mayweather
The former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson said in an interview with Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast, that Conor McGregor will get killed in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. “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?
“McGregor put his dumb ass 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. McGregor can’t kick and grab and stuff. … He’s not going to stand much of a chance.”
Tyson must have been under the impression that the match would be a mix of boxing and MMA rules, It is difficult to believe that ‘Iron Mike’ did not understand the fight between Mayweather and McGregor is strictly a boxing match under boxing rules.
Tyson did, however, say that the fight will be a spectacle and that the build up has been exciting. Boxing and MMA fans from all around the world are in tune with this mega-fight. Despite the hefty price tag associated with the ticket and Pay-Per-View prices, tickets are selling out at a rapid pace as fans and celebrities are scrapping to get a seat to this combat spectacle.
According to The Los Angeles Times, the price for Aug. 26’s fight in Las Vegas has been set at $89.95. It will cost $10 more for the high-definition broadcast.
