Boxing legend, Tyson, has attacked boxing champion , for claiming he is the greatest boxer of all time because he retired undefeated at 50-0.

Tyson retired with a record of 50-6 feels the icons of the sport have been disrespected by Mayweather’s claim.


Even though he retired with a perfect record of 50-0, surpassing that of former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano quit the sport at 49-0, Mike does not agree with Mayweather’s logic that he’s the best boxer of all time.
