Ken Shamrock On MMA Fight Against Mike Tyson: "He Wouldn't Be Stupid ..." (Video)


Ken Shamrock isn't a world-class boxer, but he is a world-class mixed martial artist.

"The World's Most Dangerous Man" recently appeared as a guest on The Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling podcast for an interview, during which he shared his thoughts on how a potential boxing match and MMA match against boxing legend "Iron" Mike Tyson would have gone had the two competed against each other in their respective primes.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame and UFC Hall of Fame legend explains how he feels a fight against Tyson in both sports would go down.

On if he ever thought about fighting Mike Tyson, and how he knows that he couldn’t box Tyson but Tyson couldn’t do an MMA fight with him: "I’ve heard talk about it [a fight against Mike Tyson] but nothing from him and nothing from me either. It just was talk… I ain’t crazy, right? I mean I know how good Mike is with his boxing so if I was to box him and not to say — I don’t have a problem doing that because I love to fight but, I’m not stupid enough to realize that, hey, I’m gonna go out and outbox Mike Tyson because I can’t. But I hope he realizes the same thing and he wouldn’t be stupid to realize he could take me in an MMA fight because that wouldn’t happen either."

On why he would have the advantage in an MMA fight: "In the world that I live in, trying to hit somebody when they’re trying to take you down, if you happen to do hit ‘em, you don’t got no power. There’s no power when you’re shooting on somebody and your timing is way off, you’re not able to turn your hips over, you can’t really get under it so it’s very difficult to catch somebody when they’re doing a low shot on you and be able to hurt ‘em so, it would be a rough night for Mike but if it was boxing, it would be a rough night for me."
