    That is the best and accurate analysis of this post. Let's add the fear factor and that there was no way anyone could fathom how to stop that force. The only way that could happen was for him not to train and have every distraction in the world in addition to wealth and mental health issues so that he could be a shell of Mike Tyson. It was a short time period but it was amazing. That's why he always was the face of boxing and still the most well known boxer today.



    chiro - I'm still scared of Mike Tyson.

      Because he was a dominant and undisputed heavyweight champion. All those guys are considered to be one of the greatest ever.

        tyson is the most overhyped boxer of all time. legit has no great win on his resume and lost all his big fights, aj surpassed his resume with the wlad win.
        people on here with a straight face try to tell me holmes who was retired for 2 years, fat, out of shape and on short notice is a better win than wlad who always keeps himself in shape. it doesn't matter what holmes did after the tyson loss, he fought him when coming out of retirement.

          I find it weird when people say Mike's prime ended in 1989. How can your "prime" end at the age of 23? If it did, then you simply shouldn't even call it a prime. Simply call it an opportunistic window when the competition was low and you shined.
          his prime ended when he lost lmao we all know tyson beats anyone in fantasy match, he doesn't need to prove it in the ring we just know

            And Marvis Frazier had to look across the ring and see the most viscious version of him. Poor guy did no wrong in his life and he had to meet that in a squared circle. Brutal and not fair. It should have been Feinstein or any child molester who ever lived.

              - -U dumb or just stoopid?

              Mike broke heavy boxing records til the end of time. Part of his success was having 3 HOFer guiding him. When they passed and Givens and King got their hooks in him and being placed on experimental psychotropic sedatives, his prime ended.

              Clearly he enters a tragic downward spiral as all but a dolt can see.

                - -Skippy sweets, tubby Lar forced the fight on Tyson.

                Been training in his own gym for a year just for that fight in between appearing at every Tyson fight calling him out and profaning him.

                What grade U in skippy?

Mike had skills and power. But he was small, got frustrated easily and folded, and would go as far as gave up under pressure.
                  Do you even watch tyson fights? Where outside of his last two fights has he ever been frustrated and folded because of another mans skill? Mike never gave up even when he was shot untrained against botha he was still looking for that ko punch and got it. Ydksab

                    Tyson beat a couple of good fighters in his time. He beat guys that were the highest ranked / champions in the 80s like Berbick, Spinks, Biggs, Tucker, Holmes, Thomas, Bruno, etc. And beat highly ranked guys from the 90s and some who were champions too like Bruno, Golota, Ruddock.

                    But yes, he did fall short at the highest level in the 90s.

                    He still had a fun career.

                      Buster Douglas disagrees.

                      Tyson is probably the most overrated boxer. But for good reason. His style was so fun to watch and the manner of him destroying guys placed nostalgia blinds over his actual accomplishments

                      Nah, heís not overrated.
                      The box office numbers prove otherwise.
