Where does Mike Tyson rank on all-time best HW's list?
Everybody talks of him as being one of the greatest but I think he was/is overrated. His best win was, what, Spinks? who wasn't a true HW to begin with and was at the end of his career. He beat Holmes, but Holmes was way past his prime. Sure he looked good KOing 2nd rate or past their prime fighters, but every time he fought 1st rate opponents he lost(Holyfield, Lewis) and even Douglas exposed him.
He was a controversial figure and a product of the Don King hype machine but i don't think he would make top 15 or even 20 on my list.
