Yes, but predicting what he would do and being able to nullify it were two different things.

Not as much as he used to. He still has some rabid true-believers but with a few exceptions they've been relatively quiet the past couple of years. At the other extreme there are fair few who think he was a complete bum and a fraud and those assesments are just as incorrect as the ones making Mike out to be the GOAT.

his form of bobbing and weaving was more predictable than Frazier's, I remember Tucker timing him with the uppercut as he weaved twice. It really depends on what version of Tyson you are talking about as well

He also threw his combinations in a pre-set pattern with the sequences being called out in numbers by Kevin Rooney. It isn't too difficult to figure out what the sequences are; doing something about them is the hard part.

As always Poet, your analysis of Tyson is on point. He was a great fighter who peaked early, like many fighters with a similar style and lifestyle.
