'Delusional Floyd Mayweather is a very small, scared man' - Mike Tyson

Tyson is predicting a KO on Saturday night.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER IS ‘very delusional’ for claiming to be better than Muhammad Ali.

That’s the view of former world champion Mike Tyson ahead of Saturday night’s meeting of Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

When asked by UCN about Mayweather’s comparisons to Ali, Tyson said: “He [Mayweather] can’t take his kids to school by himself, and he’s talking about being great? Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people, greatness is being accepted by the people.

“He’s a little, scared man. He’s a very small, scared man.”

Tyson didn’t give a definitive prediction as to who he believes will emerge victorious this weekend, but he doesn’t expect the bout to last 12 rounds.

“I don’t know. At first I took Pacquiao,” Tyson said. “This is going to be interesting. I know it’s going to be a good fight, regardless of who wins. Both guys are going to be up for this fight. I think it’s going to be a knockout. I don’t think it’ll go the distance.”
