Tyson given that he was often giving considerable size and reach advantages in a lot of his fights (not saying that Roy didn't do the same but not to the same degree as Tyson). And Tyson was still laying them out very quickly

I had to think about this for a while, which is a credit to tyson, but It would have to be rjj. But after thinking about it there was only one choice.
Tyson wasn't going to be new Ali. And whilst he looked spectacular at times, he could be made to look ordinary against Tucker and bonecrusher. I think I was in awe of Tyson at the time, as I was just a youngster when Tyson was tearing through heavyweights.
Rjj.looked pretty great against everyone. But after rjj he beat ruiz, skies the limit. He was a viable opponent for lennox lewis.
Obviously people picked rjj to lose to lewis, but still

Jones would have been much quicker and faster than Lewis. And he still had his confidence before getting ko'd by Tarver. Would have been great to see.

Roy takes Tyson out in a round or two but goes 12 with Ruiz. Ruiz is one of the worst HW champs I’ve seen. Not Chris Martin level but.... come on.

Why do this to yourself?

It’s unfortunate you think Tyson only had power.

That’s like saying all Roy had was speed. I’d agree more with Roy being all speed than I would with Tyson being all power. Why? Every HW has power. Hw is different than every division as is the pace. It’s a different world. Tyson wasn’t fighting dudes the same size as him everytime out the way every class under does. Much different with even more dire consequences.

Love how you try to discredit him by saying a “lh”. Lmao. It’s Evander f ucking Holyfield put some respect on his name dont try to devalue Tyson by forgetting to add that. They were practically the same size. Tyson had what..5, 6 pounds on him? You’re gonna have a hard time finding many men Holyfield’s size that would also beat him. He was amazing.

Roy would never stop Tyson. Ever. Roy had a lot of attributes on some HW such as incredible speed but Roy himself knew he wasn’t going to beat an upper eschelon HW. Not because he lacks the skill but Ruiz was just the perfect opportunity. Maybe he could beat a Chris Byrd or somethin’
