I do not. Have you ever seen Wlad intimidated? I guess it's possible - there's never been someone with his aura in this era - but I just doubt he's any less steely entering the ring. If he gets nailed early, that would fluster him and give Tyson an edge, but I'm not sure that would happen. First off, Tyson had trouble reaching up to hit guys who were 6'5" and up. He's such a short dude that he couldn't get nearly as much leverage on his punches when aiming high. Second, he was always susceptible to getting clinched, and he generally lost fights where his opponents could do that effectively. I think he tries to get in there and tag the chin, but fails 4 times out of 5.
