Mike Tyson: 'Delusional' Floyd Mayweather is a scared little man (Video)

Muhammad Ali recently sent out this tweet reminding Floyd Mayweather Jr. who "the greatest" boxer of all time truly is, after "Money" adamantly told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith (video here) that no one will "brainwash" him into believing Ali was a better fighter than him.

Blasphemy in the eyes of many, including Mike Tyson, who told Undisputed Champion Network (via SB Nation) that until he actually stops being a "small, scared man" who can't even take his kids to school by himself without hoards of security around him, "Money" will never compare to Ali.

"He's very delusional. Listen, if he was anywhere near the realm of greatness of Ali, he would be able to take his kids to school by himself. Okay? He can't take his kids to school by himself and he's talking about he's great? Greatness is not guarding yourself from the people. Greatness is being accepted by the people. He can't take his kids to school by himself, he's a little scared man. He's a very small, scared man."

I'm not gonna be the one to disagree with "Iron Mike."

Mayweather has made it a habit to never go out in public without a bevy of security guards and an entourage that would make Vinny Chase jealous. And apparently, according to Mike, "The Money Team" tags along with Floyd when he drops off his children at school every day.

And you can bet his massive crew will be present when Mayweather finally takes on Manny Pacquiao this weekend (Sat., May 2, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada (details). A challenge "Money" accepted to prove to all his doubters that he wasn't scared of "Pac Man."

Now, about this best boxer of all time thing... will deliver LIVE round-by-round coverage of "Mayweather vs. Pacquiao" TONIGHT, starting with the pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast at 9 p.m. ET RIGHT HERE.
