Mike Tyson has a stark warning for Conor McGregor ahead of the Irishman's hugely-anticipated showdown with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas on August 26.

Former world heavyweight champion of the world Tyson is a McGregor fan and previously said he would love to train him for a fight against Mayweather.

But Iron Mike says McGregor got a raw deal with the rules, insisting he has no chance of victory against the unbeaten Mayweather (49-0).

"McGregor is going to get killed boxing," Tyson said on the 'Pardon My Take' podcast.

"I got mad because I thought they were going to use MMA rules against boxing because that's what it’s all about: Can the boxer beat the MMA guy? McGregor put his dumb ass in a position where he's going to get knocked out because this guy's been doing this all his life since he was a baby. McGregor can't kick and grab and stuff so he won’t stand much of a chance.

"McGregor took the biggest sucker rules in the history of boxing."
