Not really. Other then one poster who keep insisting a 96-97 Tyson would have beaten Prime Wlad, the other guys all admit at best it's a 50-50 fight and Tyson would have been a under dog. No under estimating of K2 in any way.
The Poll results is exactly how it should look like.
96-97 Tyson is nowhere near what he was during his prime. BUT IF YOU TAKE OUT k2 and put the 96 version of Mike in right now,other then maybe a a fully motivated David Haye, everyone's getting knocked out.
Guys like CURRENT Price don't have the experience, guys like Mitchell,Jennings would have been KO'ED within 4-5 Rounds. Povetkin would not have even taken the fight, much less have a chance. Arreloa is way too slow for even a semi shot Mike and would have been stopped.
