What Do the biggest win of Tyson career. I personally think it was the win over Trevor Berbick. The Win over Spinks is probably second.

his biggest win as far as professionally was probably Spinks becuase of all the attention. In my opinion his most impressive win was against Razor Ruddock becuase he took alot of shots and came back when in a little trouble. Ruddock wasn't afraid like most when they stepped in the ring.

Although he gained the title beating Berbick, his biggest win in my opinion is against Spinks. Spinks had beaten the man in the heavyweight division twice, this being Larry Holmes. Spinks was the final piece of the puzzle for Iron Mike to become the undisputed heavyweight champion. Spinks really had boxing skills and many thought this would give Mike problems before the fight. Tyson passed with flying colors, obviously.

I like his win against Berbick because it sealed his place in history as the youngest man to ever win the heavyweight title. Plus, the knockout was incredidle!

I liked the win against Tyrell Biggs, he took him all the way to the 7th by choice. He could have ended the fight early, but said he wanted Biggs to remember the fight forever. Tyson picked him apart slowly and painfully. The left hook KO was incredible, send Biggs down and half his body through the ropes. I liked the KO over Holmes also, Larry ran his mouth calling Tyson a dumb kid, and Tyson took out the old grandfather clock.

Definitely the Berbick knockout.One of the most memorable displays of power in the last 25 years of boxing.

Biggs was always sensitive.After he lost to Teofilio Stevenson, he was crying in the ring.

Best is a relative term. The Berbick win was most impressive and record setting. KOing Holmes and Spinks was something no other fighter was able to accomplish.

Technically, his best win was against Tony Tucker. Tucker was a half foot taller, undefeated with a belt, quick, good chin, jab and power, and Ali type of movement. Tyson had to use every ounce of patience, which he had back then with his original corner. Tyson basically pitched a shutout against a prime talented fighter and put him on the run for the bulk of the fight.

If Tyson wasn't in his prime for the Douglas fight, then it would be hypocritical to say that Tony Tucker was in his "prime" for that fight with Tyson, don't you think?

I'm only saying that considering the fact that in the weeks leading up to the fight Tucker changed his managerial team (and trainer), spent the week leading up to and the very eve of it in court argueing with Dennis Rappaport, and also had become involved in the drug scene...not to mention Tucker busted his hand in the very first round when he caught Tyson with that uppercut.

If that was Tyson going through those things wouldn't there be a slew of Tyson fans coming up with excuses and dismissing the performance?

==========

Never, ever heard of Tucker busting his hand in any fight, much less the Tyson fight. Moreover his managerial team was his Dad, who ended up stealing his money after this fight as I recall. Tucker, like Tyson, used some drugs. Tucker went on to regain the title after his best days when Tyson was in jail, proving the talent he possessed.

Tyson may have been in his physical prime for Douglas, but not his mental prime. He was on a downward spiral after marrying Givens, ditching his original team and signing with King and his modest journeyman's record afterwards is proof. For his first 5 years Tyson was the best heavy who ever existed. Afterwards, he was kinda like a lethargic Mike Weaver, still winning a few big fights, but losing key fights.
