I think he would have KO'd Morrison.
Holyfield idk he Prbly woulda have a rough time with him still but while Tyson was in prison he gained some experience he didn't have pre prison Tyson so who knows if Tyson's hurt him he might have had enough to put him Holyfields got a great chin but Tyson was a different beast pre prison.
Bowe would have a rough time with Tyson Tyson's shorter and much better suited to catch bowe coming in so bowe wouldn't have been as willing to head to the inside. Plus body shots woulda played a major role in that.
I've never seen much of mercer so idk.
And I think he'd beat formen as long as he doesn't walk into a huge shot.
