Former two division world champion David Haye, in a recent interview with the BBC podcast ‘Greatest Fights’ - discussed the career of former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.
Tyson, 53-years-old, has been a hot topic in the headlines.
The retired boxer has been releasing viral training clips in the last few weeks - showcasing his speed and power.
Tyson has been discussing the urge to fight again, in exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.
After Tyson revealed his desire, he was quickly bombarded with several fight offers.
Haye, while reflecting on Tyson's career, explained that he never saw him overcome adversity in a fight.
He says Tyson would almost always lose when things weren't going his way in a fight.
“How many fights has he had where he was behind on points, where he got put down, hurt, and came back? That’s the question,” Haye said.
“I haven’t seen him get through many problems, ever. There was never a fight that I remember where Tyson was having some problems and brought it back round - the moment he started to lose or it get tough, it went the other way. Many fighters have had tough fights where they’ve been on the brink of losing and found a way, I haven’t seen that with Tyson.
“I find it hard to say someone is in the top five of all time [at heavyweight] if they have never had a fight which they was losing to come back to win. You can’t be an on-top fighter and win all the fights you’ve won, and never really suffer punishment and pain and come back to win.”
