MIKE TYSON has hit back at Floyd Mayweather's claims that there are too many belts in boxing.
Undefeated former champ Mayweather, 43, won 15 world titles in his 50-fight career, across five weight divisions.
But he recently told the sport's various organisations to 'sort their s*** out', saying that 'everybody's a champion'' and accusing them of taking extra money from fighters.
Tyson, 54, and old foe Roy Jones Jr came out of retirement on Saturday night to fight for the WBC Frontline Battle Belt, despite it being an exhibition scrap.
Reported by Essentially Sports, Tyson said: “Boxing never has too many belts because every time it’s a championship fight, it’s more money for the fighter.
"There’s never enough belts you know?
"To say there’s one champion and there’s 10 guys, how long will it take for the champion to fight the 10 guys?
"Plus they gotta go through each other… It’s good to have three champions because then everybody can get paid… Everybody makes money.
"That’s what this business is about. Money.”
Mayweather angered Tyson by saying: "The WBC, the WBA, the IBF and the WBO, y’all have to clean this sh** up. Y’all have to clean this up.

"This is bad for boxing. Ain’t a such thing as no super champion.
"You guys are just taking extra money from all these fighters, getting extra money from sanctioning fees. And this goes for my company as well.
"We gotta clean this sport of boxing up. This s***, this don’t look good."
