Mike Tyson names boxers with longer unbeaten records than Floyd Mayweather and explains why Money is not sport’s GOAT

MIKE TYSON argued Floyd Mayweather record is not the best in boxing history and cannot be considered the Greatest of All Time.

Tyson insisted Sugar Ray Robinson and Julio Cesar Chavez both had more impressive careers than Mayweather, who retired at 50-0.

Mexican legend Chavez once went an incredible 87-0 before he finally drew against Pernell Whittaker in 1993 and lost for the first time a year later.

And Robinson – considered by many as the best boxer ever – left the sport with a record of 173–19–6 but at one time had only one loss in 132 fights

Iconic heavyweight Tyson, speaking on his podcast in 2019, was in no doubt Mayweather’s accolades fail to stand up against those who came before him.

He said: “Floyd’s a great fighter, don’t get me wrong, but he had 50 fights.

“Listen, Sugar Ray Robinson had 47 fights, he lost one, and he had a 78-fight winning streak. With, like, 60 knockouts.”

“Don’t tell me about you’re the greatest fighter with 50-0. He’s a great fighter no doubt about it, but 50-0?

“Chavez had 90 [fights unbeaten], he was fighting like eight times a year against whoever fought him, against whoever was in the rankings.”

Tyson, 54, once admitted Mayweather, 43, would have been his ‘dream’ opponent if they were the same weight.

Iron Mike retired in 2005 following two dismal defeats but astonishingly made a comeback last year.

He drew with Roy Jones Jr, 51, in an eight-round exhibition bout and confirmed he will continue fighting this year.

Similarly, Mayweather hung up the gloves as a pro in 2017 after beating UFC star Conor McGregor, 32, but is still in the business of making money.

He wiped out featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a 2018 Japanese exhibition, making £7million in the process.

And now, the former five-division champion prepares for his greatest pay-per-view spectacle as he faces YouTuber Logan Paul in February.

Ahead of the fight, Paul, 25, was joined by Tyson on his podcast – but the celebrated puncher gave the social media sensation little chance of success.

Tyson said: “Floyd’s gonna beat his f***ing ass.

“There’s nothing good, he’s gonna fight back though, he’ll fight back.”
