MIKE TYSON confidently claimed he would kick Floyd Mayweather's "a**" in a street fight.
But the former heavyweight world champion, 56, admitted it would be a different outcome if they were the same size in the ring.
Tyson took the cheeky dig at the American superstar in 2020 as he insisted it would not even be a contest if they ever came to blows.
When asked about a street fight with Mayweather during an interview with GQ, Iron Mike said: "[I would] kick Floyd's a**, there wouldn't even be no match.
"[If] I was his size in the ring, he would outpoint me."
Tyson also insisted Mayweather is nowhere near the level of Muhammad Ali.
He said: "Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of great as Muhammed Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself.

"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 has recently suffered with health issues in recent months but looked fighting fit as he went out for dinner in the Big Apple.
But he was all smiles as he enjoyed a night out on the town in New York City.
The former heavyweight world champion revealed he is suffering from sciatica and a flare-up of the condition causes pain that prevents him from walking unaided.
Tyson also had to use a wheelchair as he made his way through an airport terminal last month.
