The room full of former world champions posed for photographs with one showing the trio of guests laughing at a Tyson story.

Posting the snaps to his Instagram, the heavyweight icon wrote: “Incredible time with some of the greatest fighters ever created Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Shane Mosley.”

In one snap, Tyson had his arm around Hearns, who won 61 of his 67 fights to capture world titles in five weight divisions.

Leonard, 64, is the oldest of the quartet and also took world belts in five different weights, defeating Hearns in a 1981 welterweight contest before they drew eight years later.

Sugar Ray wrote on his Instagram: “Thanks Mike for bringing me, Hearns, and Mosley together for this incredible and hilarious moment on Hotboxin’ podcast. This was too damn fun.

“What an incredible moment with incredible guys! Thanks.”

The ring legends were left in hysterics by Iron Mike’s remarks

Mosley, 49, was world champion in three divisions and is well remembered for an epic 2010 bout with Floyd Mayweather.

Tips on how to get the better of the unbeaten Money were handed out by Leonard.

He told the podcast: “How to beat Floyd Mayweather? There is no one way to beat Floyd.

“I would have to pull out all my tools and figure out, get a feel. A lot of feints, body shots.”

Discussing the 12-round defeat, Mosley recalled: “Floyd is really quick, technical and he felt more youthful, like I couldn’t really get to him.

“He made the mistake… he believed that I couldn’t hurt him.


“So he was like, ‘I’m gonna stay in the pocket, I’m going to fight. I’m going to stay right here and pick him off’.

“And then when I caught him, then you see Roger and all them, ‘Man, what are you doing? You don’t sit there, you better box him’.

“So he started using his boxing ability and movement and stuff like that. But he didn’t think I could hit him that hard.”
