So tyson wouldnt have the peekaboo style and be more of a brawler, would be alot smaller and be fighting good opponents all the time. Louis would be alot bigger, much better defensivly and would have a much easier ride. So personally i think louis would be champion of this era and som1 like lennox lewis would have to be tougher, more of a fighter and probably wouldnt be able to survive the early 1900s, i rekon hed be skinny as hell.
I dont think Tyson would be that much smaller. I mean in his prime he was under 220, its not like he was huge. What exactly do you think Tyson was eating in the 80s that they didnt have in the 20's? Go look at the pictures of him when he was like 14 years old, he was a beast even then.
