Mike Tyson Commentating On A Cristiano Ronaldo Goal Is The Best Thing You’ll Watch

Mike Tyson Commentating On A Cristiano Ronaldo Goal Is The Best Thing You’ll Watch

Boxing legend Mike Tyson was in his element when he hilariously took on commentating duties for a Cristiano Ronaldo goal.

The 54-year-old ex-boxing superstar made an appearance on ESPN's SportsNation when Ronaldo was playing for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos were in action against Barcelona in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final in 2013.

And Portuguese superstar Ronaldo, 35, grabbed Los Blancos' second of the match at the Camp Nou.

'Iron' Mike was brought in to commentate on the clip and the former undisputed world heavyweight champ relished the opportunity.

"Well, I see this young man running with the ball, he's picking up a lot of speed, but he's unable to score because this guy is putting a great deal of pressure [on him]," Tyson said.

"He skips. No, he feints. He's trying to score; no, he won't score. No, it won't happen. But it will now. Ronaldoooooo scores again!"

The 'Baddest Man on the Planet' went on to label Ronaldo as a "sensational" player and expected him to seal a place in the Hall of Fame equivalent for football.

Tyson continued: "He's a sensational player. You know, the women love him.

"He's going to make it into the Hall of Fame of football -- there's no doubt about it. Soccer, of course, they call it football in Europe, in Asia and most of the uncivilised world."

Rewatching the clip, 'Iron' Mike said: "This is one he blocks, but then they give it to Ronaldo again and then he slams it in again... Ronaldoooooo, magnifico!"
