Im sorry but George Foreman would have gotten knocked out. Yes he was a great puncher as far as power goes but was terrible when it came to actually throwing a good punch. His form was garbage. Tyson would have seen each punch coming and with his great bobing and weaving would have slipped each punch then went to the body to lower foremans hands then went back upstairs to end the fight. Just my 2 cents. If he would have actually landed a few good shots then maybe things would be different but i just dont see that happening.

Boxing world definitely needs a new Mike to come. I miss The Iron Mike but he had his time and that's how it goes, like it or not.

In my humble opinion Mike is the best boxer. Ever. Why? He had the skillz, the attitude, the speed, shit he had it all. His head just didn't follow the same path he did and that's why his career ended. He could have achieved something more...

Thanks so much for posting man, great video.

@ Mygeeto
Lulz... Foreman was a great fighter but Iron Mike would win.

@nigster
I can see what your saying but although he had the speed and strength i dont think his fighting intelligence matched M. Ali or Ray Robinson.
Althought alot of people think that boxing a stupid sport i think that intelligence is the most important part of fighting and i dont see Tyson matching M.Ali or Ray Robinson and a few others due to this. But without a doubt he was one of the best.

I don't want to start a debate who would win if they would fight but I have to agree with you about the intelligence aspect. But he didn't need to because he was so freakin' fast and strong. Take a hit and your gone, that was pretty much it. And you couldn't hit him 'cause he was so fast too. That's how I see it.

It seems to be a stupid sport if you don't understand it, so I agree with you in this one too. Mike's style was completely different than Ali's or Ray's and that's one reason why he is/was one of the most interesting characters in boxing.

Like I said...in my book Mike is the best boxer ever. Or AT LEAST one of them. :xyxthumbs:

Trust me Tyson would have floored Ali more than once. Look at the first fight between Ali and Joe Frazier who had a very similar style to Mike. He dropped Ali and landed a bunch of great shots all threw out the fight and won. Tyson was much faster than Joe and had alot more power and threw greater combinations aswell. Tyson in his prime with Cus in his corner would get the nod......:tiphat:

I disagree, the thing is a lot of people base what they think of Ali from after his exile, but fact is Ali was at or well was about to hit his prime just before exile. If you watch the Ali Vs. Cleveland Williams from 1966, although of course Williams does not match up to Tyson you can see here that Tyson Prime would not win Vs. Ali prime unless he got a lucky punch in which would be a very very low chance with the form Ali had in that peroid.

Watch his fights from that peroid he hardly ever got touched in the head only the body shots he allowed this opponents to hit him with as he knew it would do no real damage. I know Tyson was fast but like i said before he wouldnt land a devastating blow on Ali in his prime unless it was a lucky shot.


I agree with other Ali/Sport fan's in thinking that the worst thing to ever happen in sports history was the fact the the world never really got to see Ali in his Prime much due to exile.
