    In all seriousness, Mike was incredibly impressive to watch. His power/speed ratio was a different breed. But who did he beat that was considered a quality opponent? Mike Spinks, Trevor Berbick, and Frank Bruno? Lost twice to Evander, for christ's sake.

    I honestly feel like we'll never know with Mike. You watch his training vids and shit, dude was a phenom. He was also extremely unstable emotionally. Went through some shit towards the latter half of his boxing career, and subsequently his career went in the shitter.

    Mike Tyson was entertaining, but from a boxing standpoint, he was the Boise St of boxing. Beat a bunch of tomato cans badly, but struggled against anyone with any talent.

    “One morning I woke up and found my favorite pigeon, Julius, had died. I was devastated and was gonna use his crate as my stickball bat to honor him. I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like a infantile retard.”

    Tyson is easily one of the top 5 entertaining people to be in limelight in the 20th century.


    He wouldn't last 10 seconds in the ring with Dantonio though. He can beat a heart attack, he'd crush Tyson.

    Tyson cleaned out the heavyweight division more thouroughly than holmes did in a 1/4th of the time.

    I wish the Heavyweight division would get some good boxers again. Klitschko Brothers are boring as fuck and boxing is not nearly as entertaining without a great American Heavyweight.

    Klitschko brothers are great boxers, they are just way to smooth and clinical to make it as attractive to normal fans.

    No question about it, but they are boring. They jab all fucking day and no one can reach them because they're so fucking tall. Great boxers but you'll never see a Tyson-esque punch out of them.

    The Cus “peek a boo” style combined with Mikes left might be the greatest combo in sports had Cus lived longer

    Allowing King in was bad enough. Getting rid of Bill Cayton as manager was destructive. Firing Kevin Rooney was the end of Mike Tyson.

    I wonder how he’d fare in today’s boxing world.

    Would he be in the same division as fury and wilder? Their reach advantage would just seem so unfair against a dude who’s 5’10.”

    he beats Wilder easily. Wilder isn’t a good enough boxer to keep Tyson off of him. Fury I think would beat him. It wouldn’t just be the height but the weight would also be an issue and Fury is actually a good boxer.

    He'd give fury a better fight than many think. Fury uses those feints and flick jabs to get space. But, when he's doing them downward, he's leaving his chin open. Tyson was fast enough and powerful enough to duck under one, uppercut, and lights out.

    fury is a smart enough boxer to keep the door closed and lean on Mikes legs with his 260 pound frame for 4-5 rounds.
