Tyson, in his absolute prime, would have beaten anyone.

When Mike Tyson Ruled The World



Mmmmmm, must have been out with a cold that day and missed it.

Mike Tyson never ruled squat and with his tattoos looks to be even a bigger moron than previously.

And he was pretty damn dumb previously.

Tyson's strength was that people were afraid of him. When the fear is gone, nothing's there. We was washed up before he was 30 when he lost his technique. Any smart fighter can kick his ass, and Tyson only has a puncher's chance anymore in a bout.

Tyson simply doesn't have it up here.

During the 80's I never missed a Tyson fight. My friend, having a cable descrambler helped save us a lot of money :)
I was at a keg party at U-mass during the Douglas fight and i figured I'd rather hang near the beer in the basement then bother watching Tyson destroy another opponent in 90 seconds. My mistake! Shortly after some kid came running downstairs screaming "Tyson lost!" nobody believed him and they threw empty keg cups at him.
I just caught that fight last week on ESPN classics. What a sad end to a great fighter.
I still believe his wife had him on anti-depressants or something at the time. he seemed pretty lethargic.

My most memorable Tyson moment occurred when Spinks took the dive after 90 seconds.

Does he plan to "wrap Tyson in a cocoon of horror?"

I disagree with those who say Tyson was the best ever for reasons that had nothing to do with Tyson himself.It's hard to rate him when the competition was so weak in his division during those years.The first skilled heavyweight he fought was Douglas and he got knocked out by him.He was definitely a great fighter but calling him the best is stretching it in my opinion.

The fact that they even write about Sir Ear Biter shows just how low a writer will stoop for attention ......

Tyson is a plain and simple thug.
