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>|?
It was HIS fault (and his alone) that he was out for four years, and preferred to chew up a few clowns before facing a terrified (and unmotivated) Bruno, then Seldon.... rather than building up properly, before running from Lewis and cherrypicking a supposedly shot Holyfield.

I wouldn't have Tyson in the top 10, put it that way.

Not a great deal of thought has gone into my 11-20 at heavyweight, though I'd guess he would figure somewhere.
