Mike Tyson has named the fighter he wished he could have fought.

“Well, I would love to have fought him. I wish he was my weight,” he said.

“We can never fight, of course, because of the weight difference, but I wouldn’t fight him the way they fought him.”

Tyson went on to explain exactly how he would have fought against Mayweather.

He continued: “I would be mean, I would be dirty. Because you’d have to do everything to fight him because he’s just so good.

“You can’t… it’s almost impossible to fight him clean. It’s just so hard to beat him.

“I don’t care. It’s really hard to beat him. The style he deploys – it’s really difficult to beat him in that particular style.

“I don’t care. Love him or hate him, he’s a hard man to beat. I would fight a guy like Floyd differently if he was a heavyweight.”
