How many threads about this can be made?

And you are right, nobody "cant" beat Tyson in his days. lol

Ali and Foreman would have the best chance, and I would pick them both over prime Tyson.

Foreman would flatten Tyson, Ali would outbox and out perform Tyson. Liston would have a good chance of KO'ing Tyson, Holyfield would always give Tyson trouble. If Frazier got past round 5 he would have a shot. Buster Douglas at his best could always cause an upset. Prime Larry Holmes would do much better than the old wreck Tyson destroyed.

These are just to name a few.

if foreman can actually hit him then maybe. all must remember tyson had superb defense in his prime. how many times did he get hit by guys 10times faster then foreman? not that many so imagine tyson fighting foreman it wouldnt be that hard cause he would have to actually hit him to do something.ahahaaha

I never remember Foreman not hitting anyone in a fight. Tyson comes forward so he's gonna get hit.

1. Muhammad Ali
2. Joe Louis
3. Larry Holmes
4. Buster Douglas (on the night he actually beat Tyson)
5. Evander Holyfield
6. Rocky Marciano
7. Jack Dempsey
8. George Foreman
9. Jim Jeffries
10. Lennox Lewis



Now, the point of all those fighters being listed (and more I didn't) is that NO MAN IS INVINCIBLE...not even Mike Tyson "back in the day".

Thank you.
