Mike Tyson: "I Don't Like Floyd Mayweather"

By Mark Vester

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has plenty of critics in sport and a long line of people that want to see Ricky Hatton pull off the upset on Dec. 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is one of them.

Speaking with Daily Express, Tyson made it clear - he's in Las Vegas to back Hatton, and he's not a fan of Mayweather. Hatton's hard road to the top and simple demeanor has won over Tyson. Whether it's Mayweather's flashy lifestyle or the constant boasts of being the best fighter in the history of boxing, something about Floyd's character has rubbed Tyson the wrong way.

“I just want the best man to win,” said Tyson. “And that means Ricky Hatton. He’s a great kid. I don’t like Floyd Mayweather.”
