Mike Tyson says McGregor ‘will get killed’ boxing against Mayweather

Does MMA star Conor McGregor stand a chance against Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring?

Not according to Mike Tyson.

The retired boxer had some strong words to say about the much-anticipated Aug. 26 bout between McGregor and Mayweather during a recent interview on Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take podcast.

“McGregor is going to get killed boxing,” Tyson said. “Boxing? I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that’s what it’s all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy?

“[McGregor] put his dumb [expletive] in a position where he’s gonna get knocked out because this guy’s been doing this all his life since he was a baby. [McGregor] can’t kick and grab and stuff. … He’s not going to stand much of a chance.”

McGregor responded to a tweet about Tyson’s quote, calling himself “the new Don King.”
