This was Tyson's first tough fight and legitimate fighter. He came off a 19 KO win streak to start his career, and when he met Tillis at the age of 19, he had to go to the decision for the first time. Tillis used Ali's style and he was able to survive against Tyson. James Tillis won like 3 or 4 rounds in this 10 round fight. Some people try to use this to show Tyson's flaws, but remember, he was 19, coming off a 19 ko winning streak and never went to the decision yet, so he wasnt experienced yet.

No, Tyson even knocked him down in the 3rd and almost KO'd him at the end of some rounds.

Yeah, Tillis wasn't going to win this fight, but he did have experience, height, reach, and ring savvy going for him. A 19-year-old Tyson still looked pretty good going the distance, despite the frustration he showed in the last round. Had he more experience, but with the same hunger he had during his youth, he likely would have put Tillis down and out.

Tyson had no 19 KO winning streak, Jesse Fergusen was disqualified prior to the Tillis bout. (A great, great fight by the way, Jesse's nose was broken in the 5th, Tyson showed trmendous body punching)

Jesse's nose was not only broken, but the skin that attaches the nostrils to the upper lip was partially separated. And yes, he did show tremendous body punching abilities; something that many people claim he avoided.

Tillis fought well and was a legitimate contender; Tyson wasn't going to knock out everybody.

Yeah sure, nothing says "legitimate contender" like losing four out of your last five fights before facing Tyson, and that streak was from a fighter who, even when he was at his peak during the early 80's, could only barely manage to sneak into the top ten in the heavyweight ratings (the highest Tillis made it from what I see in some of the rankings I have from his time was 8th ranked in Jan of 1982, which would've been just before the title fight with Weaver).

Tillis was no contender when Tyson faced him.
