Paddy Pimblett is the rising star of the UFC, Recently he sat down with Ryan Garcia, who is a professional boxer. And he went on Paddy Pimblett’s Youtube podcast, ‘Paddy The Baddy’, where at some point both the fighter started talking about the emphatic might of ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’, Mike Tyson. Paddy also talked about his meeting with Tyson and how he felt, the whole time he was with him.
The conversation popped off from the topic of Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua, and their height difference. Then Pimblett started talking about Mike Tyson, how the height wasn’t much of a factor for a boxer like Tyson as he was already quite big muscle-wise. And even at his age, he still looks better than a lot of fighters out there.
Now Garcia stated, “Tyson is a beast.” Then he wanted to know what Tyson was he talking about, was it, Mike Tyson or Tyson Fury? Pimblett immediately replied while chuckling that he was talking about Mike Tyson.
Pimblett, then, went on to talk about his experience when he went on to Tyson’s podcast, ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’. He said, “I was just sitting there the whole time thinking that, you could still rip someone’s head off right now and he’s about 50-something you know what I mean. And he could still just rip someone’s out off the shoulders, his arms are still massive lad.”
Ryan Garcia agreed with Paddy and added, “He was made to be a monster in the ring.” Well, Garcia is not wrong, as Mike Tyson definitely has one of the most violent knockouts in boxing history.
Nonetheless, in the follow-up segue, both the fighters also threw some light on Tyson’s prowess in defense.
“Yeah I think he’s the only one that could pull that off because anybody else doing that they’re gonna get knocked out. You just have to be like a tank, right?” Pimblett nodded in agreement.
