Mike Tyson rips Floyd Mayweather, calls him a 'small, scared man'

Floyd Mayweather will take on Manny Pacquiao this Saturday and the mega-fight has brought nearly everyone in the boxing world to Las Vegas. That includes former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson.

Tyson was asked about the fight on Saturday -- in which he predicted a knockout -- as well as the heavyweight division, but his most interesting and pointed remark came when asked about Mayweather comparing himself to Ali.

"He's very delusional. If he was anywhere near that realm of Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself. He's talking about (being) great? Greatness is not guarding himself from the people, greatness is being accepted by the people...He's a very small, scared man."

You could see Tyson getting visibly angry while talking about Mayweather at the end and, like he did in his career, Tyson did not pull any punches when it came to ripping into Floyd.
