Default Re: 70's heavies v 90's heavies ?

Its a close one, had Tyson stayed prime, and holmes stayed prime, along with foreman and Lewis, then we'd have lots of super fights throw in holyfields, sanders, the k brothers, Tua and Bowe, all of them fighting at top game fighting each other,and you may have the best era of heavyweight boxing, but instead lots of those guys got old, got demotivated, retire, lost passion etc. Hence I gave it to 70s because the idealsituation occured. Guys from the 60s were still around fighting well, they all fought each other, and stayed in good shape. Sure Lewis beat Tyson, but I will always wonder if Lewis can beat that same Tyson I saw at the olympics duck under punches and throw lighting fast punches.
