Mike Tyson: Conor McGregor Is 'Going To Get Killed' Boxing Floyd Mayweather

Mike Tyson was upset that Conor McGregor agreed to a fight that doesn't let him kick or use his knees.

Mike Tyson believes that Conor McGregor doesn't have much of a chance against Floyd Mayweather in next month's fight in Las Vegas, he said in an interview with Pardon My Take.

Tyson mistakenly refers to McGregor as McConor in part of the interview.

"McGregor is going to get killed boxing," Tyson said. "I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that's what it's all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy? McConor put his dumba-- in a position where he's gonna get knocked out because this guy's been doing this all his life since he was a baby. McConor can't kick and grab and stuff so he won't stand much of a chance."

There Could Be More Substance to Mayweather-McGregor Than Purists Think

"McGregor took the biggest sucker rules in the history of boxing," he added.

Tyson later said that if he was in a fight with McGregor, he would allow McGregor to kick and use his knees.

The fight will take place on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena.
