Mike Tyson once called Floyd Mayweather a joker after he said he was better than the great Muhammad Ali, cited on Sport Bible.

The Money Man once claimed he was the greatest fighter that graced the sport, rating himself higher than the likes of Ali and Tyson.

But Tyson has hit back at Mayweather in a brutal manner claiming he was delusional with his comparisons with Ali.

"He's very delusional," 'Iron Mike' explained. "Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammad Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself.

"OK, 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. 'It's being accepted by the people.

"He can't take his kids alone to school by himself. He's a little scared man. He's a very small, scared man."

Tyson once had a row with Mayweather and was asked if he had a street fight with the Pretty Boy during his prime, he responded.

"[I would] kick Floyd's a**e... there wouldn't even be no match," he told GQ.

But Tyson admitted that if he was in the same weight category with Mayweather, he would be outscored on points.

He said: "[If] I was his size in the ring, he would outpoint me."
