It's like the WWE having a pay per view with only one match.

On one side you have a guy who has a flawless record and is arguably the greatest defensive boxer in the history of the sport.

The other side features a dude in his first ever professional boxing match... who won't be allowed to kick or wrestle the way he's accustomed to.

Tough call.

That's a truly random autocorrect.

Anyway, I give it 2 minutes before McGregor throws a knee.

Merryweather probably has a better shot at winning than McGregor does.

Shows you how depressing boxing has become...A UFC star battling a 40-year-old boxer who runs away from his opponents.

I miss Mike Tyson.....Iron Mike was the greatest boxer of all time when he is on his medication and when he had Cus D'amato, Kevin Rooney, and Teddy Atlas.

Tyson would have destroyed Ali or Joe Louis with a 2nd or 3rd round knockout.

Boxing died when Tyson retired along with the Heavyweight division.

With the way Louis fought, Tyson -- in his prime --would have dismantled him pretty quickly.

The greatest battle would have been the one everyone talks about: Ali and Tyson. Damn that would have been one for the ages.

Foreman would have been a great one, too.

I love Frazier, and he's my second favorite all time behind Tyson, but I'm not sure leading with his face would have ended well against Iron Mike.

I always hated Ali and loved Tyson, but, while my money would be on Mike, I don't see him destroying him. Ali could take a damn punch (see: the Frazier and Foreman fights).

The heavyweight division absolutely died with Tyson... though, sadly, it was long before his "retirement."

I love Ali, but I'd totally take Tyson. Ali was more of a runner. Like Merryweather/Mayweather. Tyson would come get you.
