Mike Tyson Says There Will Be ‘Police Involved’ If He Decides to Fight Conor McGregor

Once hailed as the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’, Mike Tyson doesn’t hold back his thoughts even on camera. The former heavyweight champ has recently claimed that he could whoop Conor McGregor’s A… in the boxing ring.

However, ‘Iron Mike’ envisions a completely different scenario if he were to take on the Irishman inside the Octagon.

Following a long hiatus from the sport of boxing, Tyson will return to action against Roy Jones Jr in September. While the fight is dubbed as an exhibition, fans are still eager to watch ‘Iron Mike’ make his way back to the ring.

Even more than just because of his raw power, Tyson has always managed to generate fear in the heart of his opponents with his demeanor. However, the former heavyweight champ has a very small weakness that wouldn’t allow him to make a crossover to the Octagon.

Mike Tyson reveals how Conor McGregor can easily force him to tap

The element that prevents most boxers from potentially stepping inside the Octagon is the fear of being taken down. While the pugilists are experts in the sweet science of boxing, the ground is a whole new unexplored territory for them. Having said that, a mixed martial artist like Conor McGregor can make Mike Tyson tap without even taking him down to the ground.

“I don’t think I wanna do that,” Mike Tyson said about the prospect of fighting Conor McGregor in the Octagon on the Dan Patrick Show. “Not because Conor might kick my A…, it’s just because Conor has the right to step on my feet. If anybody steps on my feet I’m tapping out. He doesn’t need to hit me,” Tyson said jokingly.

“If he steps on my feet when we get out the ring it’s gonna be a problem. Then we’ll have some police involved. We’ll have the lawyer involved. It’s gonna be ugly,” he added.

While Tyson has broken his retirement, fans are expecting the much younger Conor to do the same. ‘The Notorious One’ left the game for the third time even when he is just in his early thirties. However, once the global pandemic subsides and the audience is back into the arena, it isn’t very hard to imagine Conor coming back, especially after seeing his records with retirements.
