6 Years After $600 Million Fight, Fans Nod in Support of Mike Tyson’s Past Remarks About Conor McGregor’s Loss to Floyd Mayweather


The fight that secured the second-highest payout in combat sports history, Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor, was a pioneering event for hybrid fights between boxing and MMA. Before the bout, many said it’d be an easy run-through for Mayweather. But McGregor went on to show that it won’t be that easy for the 5-division champion.

Although Mayweather won the bout, McGregor proved to be a handful for the 50-0 boxer in spite of fighting out of his comfort zone. In one of the episodes of Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, the legend Mike Tyson gave his thoughts about the iconic bout.

Tyson commented on the fight, pointing out how McGregor lasted 10 rounds against “the greatest fighter in the last 100 years of boxing.” He also said that he even scored punches against the GOAT, which is a seemingly difficult thing to do. He further stated that many boxing fans saw the fight from the perspective of “The black guy beat the white guy.” which tainted their analysis of the fight.


Tyson has always been vocal about his opinions on Mayweather, and a few months ago, he chose Manny Pacquiao over Mayweather. Now, his past remarks are making rounds on the internet again.
