GOAT? I dont see it. He never beat a great fighter who was in his prime. Yes, he was scary but I still cant put him at the top.
Personal issues aside, he's the only man to knock out holmes in 75 bouts (granted he was old) He made quick work of Michael Spinks who was never knocked out and after that he lost all focus on boxing and spiraled out of control with his personal life and getting rid of his trainers. Im speaking on pure ability. Ali in his prime vs Tyson in his prime, im winning money on tyson!
We will just have to agree ti disagree. I think George Foreman in his prime would have destroyed Tyson. WAY too big and strong for Tyson.
I agree that Foreman would handle Tyson easily. I'm a huge Tyson fan there will never ever be another fighter like him. The kind of power he had was just amazing. Still, I think Foreman's size would be too much for Tyson.
Those were the good ol days of boxing
I miss good boxing
me too, I mean when UFC got popular I enjoyed watching that but now that's boring too. I hope boxing becomes good again and I think it will
Yeah can't stand the ground game of UFC, it's like heavy weight boxers holding the whole fight! Need some new stars in boxing
