The former heavyweight champion Tyson, was impressed with the UFC star McGregor (0-1), making it to the 10th round against Mayweather, who he feels is the best boxer in the last 100 years of the sport.
Tyson spoke about McGregor during a recent episode of Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson. UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou was a guest, which led to discussions about crossover fights.
The other figures on the podcast were quick to dismiss McGregor’s time in the boxing ring, but Tyson wanted to shut that discussion down.
He was impressed with the effort and how McGregor lasted.
