Mіke Tyѕon Heарѕ Prаіѕe On Conor Mсgregor For Performаnсe Agаіnѕt Floyd Mаyweаther

Despite the defeat, McGregor considered the event a huge success given it was his first professional appearance in the boxing ring and the showdown became the second highest-selling combat sports pay-per-view of all-time. And former undisputed heavyweight champion Tyson has suggested people ignore his achievements when reviewing the fight.

“[McGregor] never really had a boxing match in his life right?” Tyson said in a recent episode of his HotBoxin’ podcast when discussing the lucrative showdown between McGregor and Mayweather. “He went 10 rounds with the greatest fighter in the last 100 years of boxing.

“He went 10 rounds, scored punches on the greatest fighter in the last 20 years — 100 years. See, people ain’t looking at it. People just wanna say ‘The Black guy beat the White guy.’ They just want to see it. But look at what he had to fight against. And look at what he did when he fought against it.”

“Back in 2009 I tried to be at that time what doing right now McGregor, Silva, boxing matches,” Arlovski told SportsKeeda when assessing if McGregor can compete in both boxing and the UFC. “And back then thirteen years ago same as De La Hoya. I have one ass but I want to sit on two chairs same time. MMA and boxing; this s*** doesn’t work. I took a lesson from this and I felt, I have to focus on my MMA career. On my UFC career. Period.”
