Mike Tyson didn't pull any punches in bringing Floyd Mayweather down to size.

Ahead of Mayweather's Saturday megafight against Manny Pacquiao, Tyson was asked by the Undisputed Champion Network about Mayweather recently claiming he was better than Muhammad Ali. Tyson didn't duck the question.

"He's very delusional," the former heavyweight champ said. "Listen, if he was anywhere near that realm of greatness with Ali, he'd be able to take his kids to school by himself. 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 alone to school by himself."

Then, his parting shot: "He's a little, scared man. He's a very small, scared man."

Of course, Ali had his say earlier.
