Only thing you can say is he was scared of Foreman so he would loose. Thats only a statement, its not prooven.
Foreman was decieving in his second career. He punches may have looked slow but he was accurate. Check out the punch stats of his fights leading up to the Holyfield fight. Foreman learned his lessons from Archie Moore about conservative movement and accurate punching. The ONLY fighters that gave Foreman trouble in his comeback were guys that gave him foot movement. NOBODY WON BY BACKING UP OLD GEORGE.

foreman did manage to win back the crown at age 45. he had to have had something left in the tank. foreman would use his jab to keep tyson away and then tear into him much like he did to frazier. cus knew this, and that's why he protected tyson. i've never really seen foreman hurt in the 90s at all, so i don't know where ytou got that from. douglass ko'd tyson, so foreman would do the same.

tyson was scared of foreman. only tyson nuthuggers deny this. it was a known fact that foreman was calling tyson out and tyson avoided him. tyson even said in an interview that he was afraid to fight him.

Foreman had one gear. Forward. Tyson had one gear. Forward. You're the guy that likes to shoot **** about Tyson losing Rooney and no longer jabbing, no more combination punching, no more body punching, no more head movement, no more breathing, no longer wiping his own ass etc... So what the **** does this 'well past his prime Tyson' bring to a Foreman fight in 1991?

Cus was well, DEAD, when Forman made his comeback. I dont think Tyson was protection from Foreman or any oneelse in his heyday. He was just so much better than the other fighters of that era.

peak 1986-91 mike tyson destroys the 1990s foreman. this would be a joke of a match.

- tyson took razor ruddocks best shots and easily beat him yet he wont be able to handle a far past his prime foremans?


- glass jaw morrison shutout foreman, if foreman couldnt knockout that glass jaw, he wont stop tyson.

- not too mention foreman lost to shulz and stewart and the fact he couldnt knock these ham and eggers out shows u how bad the 1990s foreman was compared to the peak 1972-74 foreman

That version of Tyson can't beat an all time prime fighter, but he can destroy a ****ing slow ass flat footed past prime Foreman.

Ali nuthuggers would believe that crap though, i'll tell you that.

hang on i want you to think about something, which fight did Cus show tyson that scared him?

thats all you really need to think about- tyson was scared of the foreman of the 70's. The Foreman of the 90's was alot different. because Foreman had that lose to Ali he changed his fighting style. After the Rumble in the Jungle Foreman never fought the same, this is why when ppl later tried to Rope-A-Dope him they got ktfo this is also the reason that Ali didn't want a rematch. That kind of thing would only work once on Foreman. After that Fight foreman started picking and choosing his punches and thats what eventually led to his successful comeback. He was able to conserve energy and instead of throwing like a wild man for 4 rounds was able to go a full 12 rounds winning points on the way.

Now had 90's Tyson fought 90's foreman who would have won, well Foreman would have him scared before he got in the ring because tyson watched the old foreman films and though slowing down foreman was still dangerous. that aside though i don't know if Tyson would be able to win because after he got out of prison he wasn't exactly the same fighter.

However if this was a preprison tyson, prime tyson you might say, Foreman would have his hands full. Foreman was not what he was in the 70's in any way, just as tyson was not the same tyson when he got out of prison, but if it were Tyson from the early 90's vs Foreman from the 90's Foreman would have his hands full. this fight would be close. Foreman did well against swarmers but Tyson was very dangerous, almost if not as dangerous as Joe Frazier and Foreman was not what he was when he fought frazier so
this fight would be close

Foreman still had strength (alittle less then his old self) and he was slowing down but dangerous all the same

and Tyson was still "prime" i guess you could say

Foreman in the later rounds or Tyson in the Early rounds

lets be realistic


no fat ass, slow as molasses, horrible reflexes, no defense 45 year old fighter who was shutout by glass jaw morrison is going to be a peak mike tyson.


- tyson beat ruddock, a far more dangerous fighter than a 1990s foreman



- lets be realistic here, tysons a top 10 heavyeight of all time. u think a 1990s foreman can beat a top 10 heavyweight of all time?


a 1990s foreman could never knock tyson out and he could never win on points cause hes not goo enough, SO HES ****ED.


- foreman never faced in the 1990s a fighter like a peak mike tyson. he would suffer a similar fate to larry holmes. foreman did not have a better chin than holmes who was knocked out cold by tyson.


comparing opponents??

tyson TKO 7 ruddock
tyson KO 1 alex stewart


ALEX STEWART W 10 FOREMAN
