Apparently this was originally to be Tyson's return fight, Tyson offered Renaldo Snipes $500,000 to fight him after his loss to Douglas but for some bizarre reason Snipes turned it down. It was a bad move for Snipes he took on a journeyman called Jamie Howe and seriously injured his right hand forcing him out for 2 years. How do you think this fight would have gone? ok most people will think its going to be a one rounder but I have watched a fair bit of Snipes and most of his fights were wars and very exciting for the short time it last's i think this would be a good fight, still i got Tyson within 3.

Nah mate i downloaded Snipes vs Howe and Clancy was going on about how Snipes had just turned down $500,000 to fight Tyson and the Howe corner kept saying during the fight that Snipes was an idiot because he turned down half a million to fight Tyson i never heard about it till today, I will try and up it at some point. Snipes was battering Howe but had a serious hand injury after the 4th round he screamed when ever he landed the right after and he was out for 2 years and was never the same. I have been watching a few of Snipes fights recently and he was actually involved in a lot of great fights.

Snipes at that point would have been just right for Tyson, even for that Tyson. Snipes in his prime had a good right hand but took punches, Tyson would have enjoyed that with a slower easier to hit Reynaldo.

would have been a good comeback fight for tyson while it lasted. maybe 3 or 4 rounds max and then tyson would have gotten the kayo
