Mike Tyson is one of my favourite fighters and my favourite Heavyweight.

But it's Holyfield. He has every reason to be ranked above him.

Mike Tyson. Holyfield was a mega steroid abuser and the guy who got his ear bit off.

Tyson is going to. If we're talking about a critical resume breakdown, he won't. But Tyson left a bigger impact than Holyfield because of his popularity and dominance. He's more one of a kind than Holy. And H2H I think most have him faring better than Holy.

Just cause Holy has 2 wins over him doesn't quite make him the better fighter. For example, Iran Barkely had 2 wins over Thomas Hearns. Also, Vernon Forrest had 2 wins over Shane Mosley. Tyson made a much bigger impact and prime-for-prime I think it's pretty obvious he was the superior boxer. No disrespect to Evander as he was a great fighter, as well...

I'd pick Holyfield. His career at Cruiserweight makes him a clearly but closely better fighter in my opinion.

even without the CW career, Holyfield still would be a greater fighter than Tyson
