Is a Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor megafight actually happening? Maybe. Does MMA star McGregor stand a chance in a boxing ring opposite Mayweather? According to Mike Tyson, that answer is far clearer.
“He doesn’t win in a boxing match,” Tyson told SiriusXM’s At the Fights.
It would seem that Tyson doesn’t disagree too much with Oscar De La Hoya, who recently said the potential fight would ruin boxing.
“Only way it could ruin boxing is McGregor goes and boxes Floyd because he’s going to look really ridiculous boxing him,” Tyson said. “But if he goes in there with the UFC stuff, now this could be pretty interesting.”
Regardless, Tyson thinks people would still buy the fight even though it wouldn’t be all that close.
“If two people are fighting, people will pay for it.”
