Ability-wise he's about #10 or so amongst heavyweights. Factoring in his relatively weak resume, I rank him #12 on my heavyweight list.
P4P he's certainly nowhere near the top 50. I had him at #83 on my most recent Top 100 list, but I've rehashed that list countless times, so who knows. Definitely bottom quarter of any top 100 list, which IMO makes him an ATG, but just barely. His skills and H2H ability are incredibly overrated.
And LOL at TysonTard who says the heavyweights should rank higher than the other weight classes. If anything, it's the other way around.
Also, Tyson is NOT the youngest HW champion of all time. That honor belongs to Floyd Patterson. Tyson didn't become champion until he beat Spinks.
