“He Has a Really Good Technique,” Says Mike Tyson When Asked if He Would Win Against Floyd Mayweather in a Street Fight

Mike Tyson is one of the most acclaimed fighters of all time. The Heavyweight champion has admittedly been in the news for the interesting answers he gives during interviews, from unpopular takes to professional insights into the world of boxing. Tyson has an eyebrow-raising answer for everything, and rightly so, given the work, he has done in the sport over the years. His point of view on the business is very much valid.

His thoughts on his contemporaries and other fighters are something fans constantly look out for. For a long time now, people have pondered the various permutations of his fight with names like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, and he has some interesting things to say about these matchups. But how well will these legends fare against each other if thrown into a street fight?

In an interview with GQ Sports, ‘Iron Mike’ spoke candidly about his contemporary, Mayweather. Answering a Quora question in the interview that asked who would win in a street fight between the two fighters, Tyson said he would definitely excel at it. He stated, “I think I would kick Floyd’s ass in a street fight. There wouldn’t even be a match. But probably if I were his size, he would outpoint me. He has a really good technique in his style.”

Praising Mayweather further, Tyson believes that the former is “great” at what he does. However, such a street fight would bring the boxing world to a standstill. The stark difference between them remains that Floyd Jr. is a point fighter, winning his bouts through decisions, while Tyson remains popular for finishing his bouts through knockouts.
