American Boxing legend, Mike Tyson, has knocked boxing champion and money man Floyd Mayweather, for claiming he is the greatest boxer of all time because he retired undefeated at 50-0.

‘Iron Mike’ as he is fondly called, retired with a record of 50-6 feels the icons of the sport have been disrespected by Mayweather’s claim.

Even though he retired with a perfect record of 50-0, surpassing that of former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano who quit the sport at 49-0, Mike does not agree with Mayweather’s logic that he’s the best boxer of all time.

Speaking on his Hotboxin’ podcast, Tyson said: “Floyd’s a great fighter, don’t get me wrong. He had 50 fights.

“Listen, Sugar Ray Robinson had 40 fights. He lost one, then he had a 78-fight winning streak.

“40, lost one, then a 78-fight winning streak, goddamn.

“[Julio Cesar Chavez Sr] was 89-0 before he lost.

“Don’t tell me about, ‘You’re the greatest fighter,’ with 50-0.

“You’re great, no doubt about it, but 50-0? 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.’”
