Any evidence to back up a claim to the contrary?

Any evidence to prove that Tyson was some sort of genetic abnormality who went past his prime in his 20s despite being great shape?

He was 29/30 when he fought Holyfield. So he certainly wasnt past his peak age wise, he was the same weight, same muscle definition so he was clearly training.

Yet people here try to pretend that somehow,for some reason he was past his prime just because he got beaten.

If Tyson could have somehow fought the 1996 version of Holyfield in 1991, the same thing would have happened.
