The people responsible for making something what it is during it's "fetal stage" tend to get more credit because those are the decisive years. I can't rank Tyson on an equal level with Louis, Ali or Dempsey when it comes to making the sport what it is; he definitely belongs on a short list though.

You can't honestly say that Tyson didn't bring in countless new fans when I've heard from many of them for years now. Over and over I hear how "Mike Tyson got me into boxing". You hear that from young fighters as well. I absolutely hate Oscar De La Hoya, but don't deny that he brought in new fans as well (on a smaller level).
Can I ask why you hate De La Hoya? And is it as a fighter, a person or both?
