Please try and follow the thread
1 - My opinion is that Tyson could be timed, yes in his prime. Yes, this opinion has been expressed earlier in the thread.
2 - I didn't raise the issue of Lewis-Tyson. It was raised by another poster in regards to Tyson's punch resistance. My reply was as narrow as this point, I was at no time trying to match Prime Frazier with Lewis Tyson.
3 - There are absolutely
things to be learned about fighters post-prime, in the case of the truly great ones, like Ali, sometimes there is more
to be learned about them when they lose the edge from their core skills.
