Default Re: Boxers Prime years

Tyson's true prime was from 85-89 and he peaked from 87-88. His athletic prime continued until he went to prison and after that he was still dangerous but clearly on the downside.

Detractors will say he was in his prime when he fought Holyroid despite being inactive for 4 years. Regardless of the fact that Holyroid cheated and should've been banned for life from boxing for PED's and using his head as much as his fists.

So from 18 to about 22 or 23 Tyson was in his prime.

Most boxers seem to be in their primes from their mid 20s until their early 30s.
