Mike Tyson: Former legend swings at Floyd Mayweather at boxing event

Mike "Iron" Tyson and Floyd "Money" Mayweather are unarguably two big names to have walked on boxing trajectory with grandeur of championship, social prestige and the financial strength to prove it.

Although they walked into the game in different primes, the two have always been at verbal loggerhead with Mike's recent spat on Mayweather's "greatest fighter" claim putting more oil on their public feud.

Mayweather, with an unbeaten record of 50-0, had claimed he was the greatest boxer ever - a claim which did not go down well with Tyson who said his prime version would give Mayweather a "kick in street fight."

"He's very delusional. Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammad Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself.

"He's a little scared man. He's a very small, scared man,'' Tyson had said while firing back at the American.

Interestingly, the pair bumped into each other at a WBC convention in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, a former WBC welterweight and junior middleweight champion at the time, was spotted shaking hands with audience when Tyson entered.

To the surprise of the guests the 53-year-old legend walked down to where Mayweather was and showered him with the famous right hand greeting.

Floyd "The Money" put their rivalry aside and embraced the former heavyweight champion with a huge grin. Tyson later walked away with no love lost from both sides.
