Mike Tyson’s Assistant Reveals The Real Reason Tyson Hates Floyd Mayweather

Last year, we brought you a chance interview that the Undisputed Champion Network managed to get with Mike Tyson. Mike was asked to comment on the Mayweather’s claim that he’s a better boxer than Muhammad Ali. Mike had that fire in his eye, the one we don’t get to see too often these days, and unleashed a verbal combo on Mayweather calling him “delusional” and saying Mayweather is “a very small, scared man.” It’s clear to all that Tyson doesn’t like Mayweather.

You can check out that interview here:

What is now clear is that Mike’s dislike of Floyd dates back a long time before the cocky counter-puncher made his comments about being better than Ali.

According to Tyson’s old assistant, Iron Mike was informed by a number of people that it was Mayweather who told a woman in 2001 to make a false report to police that Tyson had kidnapped her and sexually assaulted her — allegations that police acted upon by raiding Tyson’s home. Nice prank, bro!

Tyson and Mayweather were reportedly pals prior to the raid but their friendship ceased from that point.

“Some serious people said it,” Tyson told Boxing Junkie, but added that he’s never been able to definitively find proof that Mayweather was a key player in the raid. “I’m good with it now…You can forgive, but you have to remember.”

This attitude is a long was from that of the Baddest Man on the Planet and shows that the dude has really grown up. If you guys haven’t seen Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, I definitely recommend that you get amongst it. He is surprisingly funny throughout but also speaks with an openness and honesty that you very rarely see from a sportsperson (whether retired or not).

Sure, he made some colossal mistakes in the past but the guy is doing his best to turn things around and you’re gotta respect that.

Iron Mike; all class these days…
