tyson was in no way, shape or form tougher than jeffries. he took a whipping on occasion, but he was a quitter later in his career.

jeffries is well known for toughness, joe choynski hit him so hard with a uppercut his teeth wedged into his upper lip, the corner cut it loose with a knife. bob fitzsimmons, one of the hardest punchers ever, with little itty-bitty gloves, equivalent to modern mma gloves reinforced them with plaster of paris, and one punch sheared a slice of skin back, causing a torrent of blood to flow, jeffries came back to ko bob.
