Foreman in 4.

He’d time Tyson’s bobs and weaves with hooks and uppercuts. Too much.

Oh I know, but the narrative is that Tyson was ducking the 40 year old Foreman.

With the caveat that prime Tyson had a chance of blitzing anyone...

Odds are that any version of Foreman beats any version of Tyson. It's just an awful style match for Iron Mike. The only guys that ever legit beat Foreman were guys that could use a lot of lateral movement to box him from the outside (Ali, Young, Holyfield). Tommy Morrison had to completely change his style to be an outfighter to get his win over Foreman.

Tyson never showed that kind of flexibility. He'd try to blitz Foreman in spots, but Foreman had a unbelievable chin, so Mike getting a KO seems unlikely. And when Mike isn't throwing leather, he'd be standing right in the "death zone" in front of Foreman getting bashed with that telephone pole jab. Old Foreman probably decisions him with the the jab and catching him coming in, and young Foreman blows him away with one of those jaw-shattering uppercuts. Either way, Mike loses.
