The same can be said about Vitali
Tyson had great ability to cut the ring, and I doubt Vitali would be able to keep him on distance with his jab like most of his standard opponents (none of them comparable to Tyson).

It feels dirty, so so dirty, but Vitali by stoppage.


Tyson was disintersted by boxing by this point and further to this if a same (ish) height Holyfield could frustrate him what would Vitali do?

Its a toughie because Solis has some success and Ademek just isnt a heavy like Tyson, but I think Vitali stops him late.

TYson KO mid rounds

Does Vitali get troubled by the punches though?

Bare in mind he didnt look too flusterd from a monster of a Lewis uppercut.


Personally I think if 30 year old Tyson does land he does so by reaching and losing his leverage and therefore power, akin to Haye against Wladimir.

2011 Vitali vs. 1996 Tyson...Tyson might win, but it would be competitive.

2004 Vitali vs. 1996 Tyson....Vitali TKO10.

He held on for dear life didn't he? Byrd actually managed to bother him too.

I love it how some think beating Adamek makes you good enough to beat 90s Tyson, but beating Golota and Bruno are noway comparable opponents I'm not even sure why anyone thinks 40yo Vitali is that good, ok he's good enough to do what Chad Dawson did, well done

Klitschko by late round tko.

At this point in his career,Tyson could only win if he was in with a guy whom he could knock out quickly,like Bruno or Seldon. Vitali would not meet that criteria.

My guess -

51% chance Tyson TKO's Vitali on his feet or cuts him bad in teh first 5 Rounds. [like Bruno 1 + Bruno 2 fights]

49% chance Vitali survives teh early storm to TKO Tyson late. [like Peter + Arreola fights]

Everyone will lulz at you! Everyone will lulz at you!

I feel you. I'm personally of the belief that Lennox Lewis is no better than prime Tony Tucker or Joe Bugner. Remember when Lennox did what Moorer, Buster Douglas, and Oleg already did? WOOOOO! Some career.

Mayweather Jr. isn't that MUCH better than Vinny Pazienza.

Are you crying like a ***** over someone criticising your beloved Klits again? Sorry to break it to you that Adamek is B Class and Dawson dominated him easily and he went life and death with Briggs and Arreola

Enlighten us and tell us which individual win of Vitali's on his comeback is top draw.........I'll be waiting and
