I'm not discounting them, they're great too. But Mike was the one who brought boxing back to the top during that time, he made it popular again.

Ask any random, a friend or coworker if they like boxing today and you'll get a rebuked response of "naw, not really, it's boring, it's all rigged" or only watched during Tyson's reign, and for good reason.

Nah you can't put Tyson top 5, or top 10 for that matter

He did well in the 80s but that was it

Iron Mike had a good run...they MANNER in which he ran over his mostly overmatched opponents created a major buzz and heís probably a top 5 MOST OVERRATED HW of all time...he LOST the fights that he NEEDED to win to put him in the argument of BEST HW OF HIS ERA...not only did he take Lís in those fights he got stopped or was on his way to getting stopped in all of those fights

I love Mike but I canít rank him above Lewis, Holy, or Wlad...and thatís just the modern day HW greats...you canít rank Mike over Ali, Louis, Foreman, Holmes, Lewis, Holyfield, Wlad and expect to be taken seriously on these streets lol

Tyson was the most hyped fighter of all time imo

21 year old Tyson is a challenge for any HW from any era. Young Tyson was phenomenal, never seen a fighter quite like him.
