From a UK point of view, i'd say Mike Tyson purely because we never cared for basketball and still don't watch basketball. In America it's probably Jordan though.

You are going to some extra Tyson votes because you are asking on a boxing forum but Jordon was one of the most famous Athletes ever.

michael jordan


he was accessible to everybody and was portrayed as a role model (even though he wasn't, the media made him into one



lots of young people weren't exposed to tyson because he wasn't portrayed as a role model, but a villain

Iron Mike by far. Never knew who Jordan was till about 10 years later and that was only due to Nike.

People who didn't know about boxing knew Mike Tyson.

I'm sure if you took a sample from around the world you'd find tyson to be the more famous. In america I can understand jordan being more well known. Basketball is just less of an international sport and tyson was a freak in terms of his popularity.

Jordan did more for basketball's popularity than Tyson did for boxing. So I'd say him.

D4thincarnation, you need to step your fresh prince game up, will smith was seen in Numerous episodes WEARING Jordans (sneakers if you didnt know). kid n' play in the 80's were seen WEARING Michael Jordans sneakers, also numerous celebrities and personalities back then "endorsed" his Line of sneakers.


Hands Down, MICHAEL JORDAN.
