Tyson questions lack of intent ahead of fight

ON Sunday the gloves will be on when Floyd Mayweather takes on Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas in the richest fight of all time.

At the press conference where the boxers faced off for the final time before the weigh-in, it seems the only man who had the gloves off was former heavyweight world champion, and one-time friend of Mayweather, Mike Tyson (pictured).

Once labelled the "baddest man on the planet", Tyson said he thought he was at the wrong venue after both fighters talked of God and praised each other.

"It was very subtle, very nice, very polite here. It feels like I'm in, not church, but like a library," Tyson said. "Maybe I'm a Neanderthal. I'd want to kill the other guy.

"Boxing's different from when I boxed. These are businessmen up there. … and I'm a natural born killer. I want to win, I want to win in dramatic fashion, and I want to hurt people. I don't like hurting people, I'm just so damn good at it."
