Default Tyson on Floyd: Staying undefeated is ok when you’re fighting once a year

“Floyd Mayweather is a great champion. He’s been undefeated for 14 years. But that’s ok if you’re fighting once a year like he does, but if you’re fighting 4 or 5 times a year you get better and better”.

I guarantee you he will fight again. He's too irresponsible with is money and at some point will need another big payday.

I think he was really fighting quality opponents even if it was just once a year but, his resume will always be questioned of why he did not fight the right boxers at the right time and why up until now he hasn't fought the boxers he was supposed to fight..

Translation: "Floyds only undefeated because he rarely ever fights and cherry picks his opponents."

Tyson has really been riding Floyd's ass lately, that must really sting for Mayweather to have a OG like Tyson questioning his 0 for inactivity.

Tyson: "I like Floyd Mayweather, but I will always be a true Mike Tyson fan, but I don’t see what department Mayweather needs improvement with".

It's not rocket science. There's a few reasons he is undefeated and fighting less frequently is one of them. Choosing who and when he fights very well is also another.

It's not like he fights once a year and is 25-0 or 33-0. He's 43-0 and 35+ years old. 10 years removed from his fighting prime. I don't think it's a big deal how often he fights, when his career is over, you analyze and rate him as you feel fit. Trying to degrade his legacy on the belief that he should be 50 fights into his career by now is utterly foolish.

Tyson is right, to a point. It is still tough to stay undefeated though. I think Mike is going to start talking shit more and more, and wind up in trouble within a year or so. All the fame he got back, with the Hangover movies, Jimmy Kimmel appearances, and play he now has out have him getting arrogant again. He has not learned, and will **** up eventually I'm afraid.
