Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson wasn’t impressed by the relatively polite and civilised build-up, and the in-ring action, during this weekend’s “Fight Of The Century” between Floyd Mayweather, 48-0 (26), and Manny Pacquiao, 57-6-2 (38), which took place on Saturday night at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas.

Mayweather won solid a twelve round unanimous decision.

The 48-year-old was infamously mean and moody before, during and, occasionally, after his fights; the former fighter turned promoter and pundit bemoaned the lack of devilment on display when speaking to The Daily Telegraph’s Gareth A. Davies.

“It's almost like I'm in, I wouldn't say church, but a library,” stated Tyson.  “Maybe I'm just a Neanderthal.  I wanted to kill the other guy.  I'm a natural born killer.  I want to win in dramatic fashion and hurt people.  They make one guy the good guy and one guy the monster and they sell it and make a lot of money.  Boxing is different from when I boxed.  Those guys are businessmen up there.”
