Mike Tyson Believes Prime Version Of Himself Would Kick Floyd Mayweather's 'A**e' In A Street Fight

Mike Tyson Believes Prime Version Of Himself Would Kick Floyd Mayweather's 'A**e' In A Street Fight

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has claimed that a prime version of himself would kick Floyd Mayweather's "a**e" in a street fight.

The 53-year-old ex-boxing superstar has previously had a heated rivalry with the undefeated Mayweather.

When 'Iron Mike' was asked about a potential street fight with 'Money' in his prime, he told GQ: "[I would] kick Floyd's a**e... there wouldn't even be no match."

The former undisputed heavyweight champ put his rivalry to one side with Mayweather when he suggested that he'd lose in a boxing fight if he were the same size as him.

He admitted: "[If] I was his size in the ring, he would outpoint me."

Mayweather, who boasts an unbeaten record of 50-0, once claimed that he was the best boxer in history and rated himself higher than the likes of Muhammad Ali and Tyson.

He continued: "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.

"OK, he can't take his kids to school by himself, and he's talking about he's great?

"Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people. It's being accepted by the people.

"He can't take his kids alone to school by himself. He's a little scared man. He's a very small, scared man."

Tyson also claimed in the GQ interview that he could never have become a UFC superstar because he has the "worst feet in the world."

He explained: "I don't know what I would do in the UFC, because I watched the UFC a couple of times, and I watched these guys step on people's feet.

"And I have the worst feet in the world, and if somebody stepped on my feet, I would totally tap out and just give up.

"It would be a no-brainer."
