Boxing legend, Mike Tyson, has knocked boxing champion 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.
