Video: Mike Tyson Talks Pacquiao vs Mayweather, Klitschko Brothers, UFC vs Boxing

Mike Tyson will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame this weekend, and recently he sat down with Graham Bensinger to discuss boxing. Here's a bit on Tyson's feelings on Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr, and whether or not they'll fight:

 

Mike mentions something that we were talking about in a recent thread: So far, rust has never hurt Floyd Mayweather Jr to any noticeable degree. Even considering Juan Manuel Marquez was fighting heavy and all that, Mayweather showed almost zero signs of ring rust in that fight, which came after nearly a two-year layoff. That's incredible to come in and show no sign of the fact you haven't fought in almost two years, against what was at the end of the day still a world class boxer.

Tyson also says that today's game is doing fine in his opinion, and weighs in on the Klitschko brothers not getting the respect they deserve, and compares the game today to the way it was when he was in his prime. "In my era, everyone wanted to accomplish greatness," says Tyson. He also compares today's boxing to UFC. It's a good video. Watch it. Tired of telling you what he says.
