Boxing is nothing but a sport for thugs and retards! I hope it is banned very soon. Promoters, managers and trainers together have ruined the game. Attendence for the so called sport will never regain any real status. Nothing but negros, damn foreign nut heads and crooks!!!!

Nap time buddy. Go dream about keeping the competition between American white males only. Unfortunately, real fighters take on ALL comers.

Stop your whining. Compete with the world or don't call it a "world championship" ya wussy.

Tyson in his prime probably would have pounded Ali in his prime.

while I like Tyson he wouldn't have beat Ali if they were both in their primes

Ali is taller, quicker, has a longer reach, can take a punch, and thinks thru the match

I'm going to have to go with Gentleman Jim McPunchyfist. Sure, he's long dead, but then I've seen firsthand how a zombie boxer can take a punch. I mean, you have to punch THROUGH the zombie to even slow 'em down.

The last American African American Heavy Weight Champ, who loved his country,beat the NAZI, champ,served in the Army...None with better charactor..No theatrics,all business ,.."The Greatest Heavyweight Champ ever......"JOE LOUIS"...a gentleman, soft spoken,great golfer.Not a big mouth Muslim clown....but then again he was part of the "Greatest Generation". Rocky Marciano was also a great champ,his record proves it,Great Americans!.not the losers who followed!!That excluding "Smoking Joe Frazer"...who gave Cassius Clay when the bum could not get a license to fight, a job!!..how this bum Allie treated Frazer is disgusting!!but Allie is the Liberals darling...A Muslim,draft doger,and a foul mouth.braggert....Class counts..Allie never had that.

Tyson had the 'Ivan Drago' factor, his punches were more powerful. A Tyson/Ali fight might not have lasted into the 2nd round.

If it did go long, Ali would probably have come out on top, but I just don't see it as a long enough fight for Ali's stamina and intelligence to come into play.

The best ever was Packy East. After his prime he changed his name to Bob Hope. Little is known about this latter part of his life.

Aside from the above sucker punch, Sugar Ray Robinson would certainly be in the running for best ever, pound for pound.

Only in his dreams he would, taking aside an ageing Larry Holmes and a vastly overrated Micheal Spinks Tyson never actually beat anybody of any merit and lost to the best boxers of his era, at end of day he was overrated all power and aggression with limited boxing skills and theres no doubt thats fact. If Buster Douglas could beat Tyson in his prime Ali would without any doubt.

Ali's reputation has grown with the passage of time. He was just a boxer, he wasn't Paul Bunyan.

Tyson would have had, at a bare minimum, a puncher's chance of winning a fight against him, and probably more.
