Prime Iron Mike Tyson with Kevin Rooney before prison was in another galaxy, itís such a shame he didnít have those truly worthy adversaries at the time to truly test his abilities and his own power against!

But I give Wilder credit, he truly has unique power!

Heís dropping and knocking out grown men outweighing him 30-45 pounds which is insane!

Wouldnít want to take a punch from that man even if they pay me thatís for sure!

For real though, his power might be on par with Mike Tyson. He might even have more just because Wilders reckless aggression allows him to get more of his body and full weight into his punches, putting himself out of position defensively and leaving himself open.

Mike Tyson will always be better though. He had better technique, threw a better variety of punches, threw more punches, and I think Iron Mike took a punch better, but then again, the heavies are bigger now.

Mike fought in a tougher, 15 round era though.

Fun to compare the 2, they are 2 completely different styles.
Mike is probably the only guy we can compare Wilder to because at times, Mike faced similar weight disadvantages. But not to the extent Wilder is doing it. Even small heavyweights like Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, and Jack Dempsey were fighting guys their size more times than not. And even when Mike was fighting, the super heavyweights werenít the norm. Now days, if you arenít 240lbs+, itís gonna be hard to make it in the division. When Mike was fighting, it was still possible for a light heavyweight like Spinks to move up and be successful at heavyweight. Michael Moorer and Evander Holyfield were light heavyweights that moved up and won the legitimate heavyweight title. Holyfield was technically a cruiserweight. But he won an Olympic bronze medal as a light heavyweight. That doesnít seem possible in this day and age.
