Two of the biggest names in the boxing world have been locking horns away from the ring once again with Mike Tyson discussing Floyd Mayweather‘s latest claims.

Floyd Mayweather has been one of the most recognisable boxers in recent years, and he ended his career undefeated in 2017.

Tyson recalls that at one point the American fighter compared himself to Muhammad Ali, even calling himself superior, something Tyson did not like at all.

“Don’t tell me you’re the greatest fighter with 50-0,” Tyson said on his podcast.

“You’re great, no doubt about it, but 50-0? Julio Cesar Chavez had 90.

“He was fighting like, what? Eight times a year? Against whoever was in the rankings.

“He wasn’t picking. It was ‘whoever you want, come on’.”

Floyd Mayweather compares himself to Muhammad Ali

It was some time ago that Mayweather decided to make comments about Ali, comparing himself to the legend.

“Is Ali the same fighter that got beat by a fighter with seven fights?” Mayweather said.

Leon Spinks beat Muhammad Ali when he only had seven fights. We’re just telling the truth. Next.”

Tyson picked that argument apart too, criticising Mayweather further.

“He’s very delusional,” Tyson said of Mayweather.
