He was good, very good, but not great - not by a long shot.
Tyson had been out of boxing for 4 years, had lost his stamina, the most underrated attribute in boxing, you dont think thats a good excuse?
You think a none great would decimate that Larry Holmes and Spinks? Clean out the 80s division, which for the record is allot better than todays? I'm interested who you rate above Tyson>|?
