Mike Tyson has launched an astonishing attack on Floyd Mayweather. He called Mayweather “little scared man” and “delusional” for comparing himself to Muhammad Ali.
Last week, Mayweather, who is unbeaten in all of his 48 professional fights, reiterated his claim that he is a better fighter than Ali, widely known as “The Greatest”.
No disrespect to Muhammad Ali, but he did it in one division. I just look at Ali’s career when he fought Leon Spinks and lost to a fighter with seven fights. There were some other fights he lost and he’s still known as The Greatest because that’s what he put out there. It is what it is.” Mayweather said.
“He called himself The Greatest and I call myself TBE (The Best Ever). I’m pretty sure I’ll get criticized for what I said, but I couldn’t care less. I could care less about the backlash.”
Mike Tyson didn’t agree with him and launched an attack on him.
“He’s very delusional,” the ferocious former heavyweight champion said. “He can’t listen. If he was anywhere near that realm of greatness with Ali, he’d be able to take his children to school by himself
“He can’t take his children to school by himself and you’re talking about he’s great? Greatness is not guarding himself from the people. Greatness is being accepted by the people.
“He’s a little scared man. He’s a very small, scared man.”
