But if you could stand up to him and had the tools to a) catch Tyson and b) hurt him you stood a healthy chance of exposing his fatal character flaw - his admitted terror of being bullied.

Many of the above people stood up to Tyson - at least for two or three rounds (if that) - but none really could find a way to catch and hurt Tyson sufficiently.

Ribalta just wasn't good enough. Bruno did catch Tyson with one good punch - and that was it. The guy was terrified of him. Holmes was way past his best. Biggs just didn't take it seriously. Tucker is probably the best candidate above - but again, he didn't put sufficient pressure on Tyson. Most probably because he was afraid of being hit.

Douglas wasn't afraid and possessed the tools to catch and hurt Tyson. And Holyfield has never been afraid of anyone in his life. Tyson could fight him for eternity and never win. Holyfield knew Tyson's weakness and knew Tyson couldn't intimidate him.

Yea, I tend to agree with most of what you say here.

Bottom line, to beat anything like prime Tyson, you not only have to:

1) be able to stand up to him
2) you have to be able to take his punches

And

3) you actually need to be superior physically/in better condition and/or technically

Hardly reason for Atlas to dispute his inclusion into the IBHOF. Plenty of other IBHOF candidates would have struggled on one or more of these points in a head to head matchup.
