“This guy punches like God knows who, he moves quicker, I’ve worked with his speed.
“Listen man, he only has to land one or two.
“Tyson’s never been in the ring with a guy that can punch this hard.
“I think this guy punches harder than anybody he’s ever fought.”
Tyson believes should Ngannou pull off the victory, it would surpass his own historic defeat to Buster Douglas as the greatest upset in the history of the sport.
“It would be a bigger upset that Buster Douglas vs Mike Tyson.”
