Shots Fired! Conor McGregor and Mike Tyson Trade Verbal Blows!

Conor McGregor and Mike Tyson seem to be starting a feud of their own.

Just when you thought the Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather madness couldn’t get anymore crazy, it appears that a boxing icon and veteran of the sweet science has decided to chime in on his thoughts on the potential biggest match in boxing’s long history. Mike Tyson doesn’t think the brash Irishman has much of a chance in his bout against arguably the best boxer to ever lace up the gloves.

Many aren’t giving Conor McGregor much of a chance against Floyd Mayweather and with good reason. Mayweather has been boxing his entire life so the prospect of a mixed martial artist being able to get the job done does sound ludicrous and Tyson believes that thought process holds true. Tyson claims that Conor McGregor will get knocked out by Mayweather. But McGregor isn’t sitting silentin regards to the boxing legend as he fired back some verbal jabs of his own.
