Mike Tyson is apologizing to Floyd Mayweather, Jr, one day before his big fight against Manny Pacquiao. This week, Tyson had made comments criticizing Mayweather for suggesting that he was better than Muhammad Ali. In the interview, with Undisputed Champion Network he said:
He’s very delusional. If he was anywhere near the realm of greatness of 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.
Today, Tyson posted the following Instagram message, apologizing:
An article circulated today, which referenced an incident that happened to me many years ago. It was released without my consent or endorsement. It inferred that I had animosity towards Floyd Mayweather Jr. because of something that happened many years ago. This entire article is speculation and it’s unfortunate that it would be released at all, especially the day before the biggest fight in decades. I have no ill will towards Mayweather and have a great deal of respect for his discipline in and out of the ring.
