If Buster Douglas could beat Tyson in his prime Ali would without any doubt.

No way. He lost at least 10 fights and the title 3 times. He lost to Michael 190 lb Spinks. Todays Heaveweights would mop him up they are so quick and big. Look at the Russians, Ukraines,,they have the belts and yes, ko every American sad to say. I however do like the class of the Klitschko brothers who are by far the top fighters in the World. Tyson, pleeeeease. The man lost to Holyfield 2 times and to a 100th ranked fighter in his prime, Buster Blob Douglas.

LMAO- you mean eventually. Take a look at his carreer when he just became a professional boxer...they could not find many more people for him to knock out.

Pleeze the man was a joke...he didnt box as much as throwing haymakers.The boxing community caught on to his style,stayed away from his flailing arms and jabbed him to death.

Tell me,who did he fight worth a damm between 85-90 ?

From 90 on up to his retirement he either bit ears,punched refs,punched after the bell,tested positive for marijuana after a fight,his own corner threw in the towel...

Yeah great fighter, Haaaa !!

Funny how you say that like you know boxing, or would EVER stand a chance against Tyson's "flailing arms"...which were actually overhand-hook variations (although sometimes upper-cuts) intened to knock a f'ing head off everytime he cocked one back. You talk like the guy had no footwork, jabs, blocking, etc.

LMAO- GTFOH!

There is a difference between our opinions and the "truth". This is an opinion question Genius, thus no "truth" involved. As for your question, I am content with my thought Tyson is the greatest ever...I could give a damn about your questions.

-yeah, seeing as how your definition of an idiot seems to be anybody that does not agree with you! LMAO!

One more time for ya Genius, this is an opinion post! I know Tyson and I like him. I think he is the best. That's just my opinion. If you don't like it, fine. But to call me an idiot because I don't agree with you is pure ignorance. But hey, ignorance is bliss! Now GTFOH

-nah, I just don't feel the need to justify my opinion to somebody when they talk about their opinion like it's fact. That's just too funny.

Did you have an opinion about a boxer, or are you just on here to incite others (truly grade-school/childish!)?

Sorry, I gotta go with Nick on this one.

What exactly is "the truth" he needs to accept, when it's all purely opinion?

BTW, his last answer about Tyson's punch preference showed some boxing knowledge, the kind that would lend some credence to his opinion. This is the wrong time for you to bail out.
