Unfortunately he didn't have an opportunity to face any all-time greats in his prime (or in their prime for that matter).

He came along right after Larry Holmes' title reign, however he did destroy the man who had ended that reign a few years prior. (Michael Spinks). Spinks wasn't an all-time great but he was undefeated going into the fight and Tyson essentially retired him. He also defeated Larry Holmes in 1988, and contrary to popular belief, Holmes wasn't completely shot at that point because he came back four years later to beat a top contender in Ray Mercer and lose competitively to a prime Evander Holyfield. In other words, it's impossible to be shot in 1988 but not in 1992

Tyson was also scheduled to fight Evander Holyfield in 1991 but he had to pull out with a rib injury and then he went to prison the following year.

Tyson did lose his biggest fights (Holyfield in '96 and '97) and Lennox Lewis in 2002 but his prime was long gone by then. Tyson's best years were 1986-1989 which was right after Larry Holmes and right before guys like Holyfield, Lennox Lewis and Riddick Bowe came on the scene. If Tyson were a few years older or younger then he would have had better competition.

Maybe you can say Spinks, but prime Mike was the ATG

No. He had some decent wins. I'll compare his best wins to current fighters ability wise.

Tony Tucker - Gerald Washington
Old Larry Holmes - Kevin Johnson (prime version)
Tony Tubbs - Eric Molina
Michael Spinks - Jesse Hart
Frank Bruno - David Price
Alex Stewart - Lucas Browne
Razor Ruddock - Joey Abell

Larry Holmes wasn't in his prime, but he wasn't nearly as past it as people thought at the time. He had 24 fights after that, challenging for the HW title twice.
