Imagine if they all fought each other multiple times. Lewis Tyson Holyfield Bowe. That's a fab four right there. Not one of them would have had a career pass 1999 though. Probably all be shot by 97ish
I think those four, in terms of physical attributes, skill and ability surpass the 1970s and without much problem. Too bad it didn't pan out. Tyson would've won his title back in the fall of 1991, but it would've been brief in all likelihood. His legacy would be exponentially better than reality though. Maybe has enough to defend against Bowe before dropping the rematch or losing to '93 Lewis if the former wasn't warranted.
