I think that a prime Tyson is the fourth best fighter of the last 15 years, behind Lewis, Holyfield, and Riddick Bowe. Any of those three fighters could have beaten him in his prime.

I would rate Tyson the 10th or 11th greatest heavyweight of all time.

You know what is funny about Tyson fans?The excuses they make.Holyfield was washed up when he fought Tyson.That is the only reason Tyson fought him.Tyson was 30 he was still in his physical prime and Holyfield destroyed him.I agree with you Mckay so many fighters would beat Tyson.And top level heavyweight who didnt have a glass chin and fell for the Tyson hype crap would knock Tyson out.Tyson a top 10 heavyweight?Hell no i can name at least 10 fighters in just the last 15 or so years who would own him.Tyson at his peak was just a guy who padded his record against bums.Nothing more and nothing less.

however he fought any challenger at the time and although he was in peak physical state vs holy, his mind was totally f**ked up as we all know from the second fight the peak tysonwas the man who took berbicks legs away, the man hu took larry holmes 15 rounds and Koed michal spinks in 1 hu beast larry although i do think larry won that fight

Well, I'll just list the first ten boxers that come to my mind and would've beaten the peak Tyson at their respective prime soundly:

Foreman
Jimmy Young
Joe Louis
Gene Tunney
Holyfield
Ali
Holmes
Lennox Lewis
Sonny Liston
George Chuvalo
Marciano
Max Schmeling
Riddick Bowe

I'll just stop here, if someone wants me too I can name some more. Tyson isn't listed in my Top 20 HW and that's for a reason.
