Shame he paid Lennox Lewis to step aside in the 90s, then ducked him....
He only fought him in 2002 because there was no other way he could win a major belt / reclaim his legacy post-Holyfield I & II.
Lewis would have beaten ANY heavyweight in history.... fact. Don't let the US propaganda fool you, kids....
Don't let Brit propaganda fool you, Felch.

Tyson had no heart and folds when his opponent could take his hits and werent afraid of him. Ali could get caught early because he did get hit a lot more then he should but he did get back up from a Joe Frazier left hook and Big George even landed a few good shots on him. Ali would outbox and break Tyson.
He beat everyone that was put in front of him, save for Douglas.
e: lost to Douglas, gah typo

Lennox is arguably the HW GOAT. Olympic champion, beat every man he ever faced, 2 shock losses that were both avenged, beat every young contender, old veteran, fellow champ and legend alike in his generation, and dominated the division for his entire era - early 90s to the early 00s.
Please don't try and discredit and pick that apart either - I could do the same to other boxers, and it's just a negative thing to do.
your nationalism knows no bounds.
Its a terrible match up for Ali. Too much speed, too much intensity matched with actual skill and agression.
This wasnt some bigger, slower, slugger. It was a more compact, qucker, skilled killing machine with the Foreman like KO power.
Tyson would have killed Ali if both met in their primes IMO.
i mean if u said this about royce vs fedor there wouldnt even be a disscussion.
I guess theres only so much to learn in boxing before it comes down to power , stamina and technique

But MMA with unified rules has been around for 10 years. Maybe a little bit longer.
vale tudo even longer.......unified rules are for pussys, pride was a close as it got to vale tudo

Prime Tyson isnt a guy you could be worn down by a jab. Maybe the old, undedicated Tyson who was world champ @ 19 years old.
Im quite sure that Tyson would do Ali like Hari did Schilt the first time. Only more efficiently.
now look at how Ali lost. he lost 5 Fights in total
4 by Decision and 1 by TKO to larry homies R10 in a 15 Round bout.
(3 of this loses were past ali's prime)
now the Chances of Mike to Beat ali in a Decision is Highly Unlikely
and for Mike to have anuff energy to beat ali in the later rounds? no way
mikes only hope is to TKO/KO Ali in the first 4 rounds and for that to happen he has to catch Ali look at the first liston/ali fight liston was running around trying to get ali and could not catch him.
