Mayweather claimed he was the greatest boxer in history, better than the likes of Ali and Tyson who hit back in brutal fashion.

"He's very delusional," 'Iron Mike' explained. "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.

Tyson has previously had some beef with Mayweather and when he was asked about a potential street fight with him in his prime, he told GQ: "[I would] kick Floyd's a**e... there wouldn't even be no match."

The former undisputed heavyweight champion 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 revealed: "[If] I was his size in the ring, he would outpoint me."
