The legendary former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson admits that mixed martial arts in our days attract less attention than professional Boxing. However, at the same time, he is confident that MMA fighters earn less than boxers.
According to “Iron Mike”, he enjoys watching UFC bouts. However, Tyson believes that in financial terms, even the most popular MMA promotion in the world can compete with strong companies from the world of Boxing.
“MMA will always be to collect more hits than Boxing, but boxers will always make more money than MMA fighters. It’s hard to explain. This makes no sense. I don’t know why it happened. Just, in my opinion, MMA fighters earn enough. This is an exciting and attractive sport, but UFC fighters get not so much,” said Mike Tyson.
Earlier, Mike Tyson admitted that he was offered 10 thousand dollars to fight a gorilla.
