In a way though, don't you think it would be harder for Vitali to fight someone 5'10 and built like Tyson rather than 6'3 and built like Haye?

Haye's height is practically perfect for the jab......

Tyson at 5'10 and ducking is almost too low for Vitali to hit.

GDG you make a great point he was far more elusive than haye. and threw better punches and wasnt he about 220lbs? i wouldnt like to choose who wins it though, he would dismantle wlad not sure about vitali.

Corrie Sanders hurt every 1 he ever fought except Nate Tubbs and d 1 he fought in 2008 , when aged 42 (Tyson who was of d same age was well retired by then and was shot 5 years earlier) .
Rahman and Vitali were just hurt as opposed 2 badly hurt (and lost) which was d case with d rest of his opponents .
Tyson's only chance of landing anything on Vitali would have been by punching 2d body but Vitali won't just stand there and let him . Same with Tyson vs Valuev . D only men who could b threats 2 prime Vitali were Sanders (who came quite out of shape) , Valuev (if he only bothered 2 train and b motivated and was not reluctant 2 hurt his opponent) , McCline (who most people will favor Vitali 2 beat) , Lewis (and their fight is a NC 2 me) , McCall (late 80s 2 mid 90s) , Michael Grant (who was heavily fouled vs Lewis 2d point of DQ which didn't happen) .
Tyson would have eaten uppercut after an uppercut if he stood close 2 Vitali which was his only chance and only way .

Thats right.

Thats why Vitali beat Byrd in 91 seconds and Kod Lewis in 4 rounds

While Tyson pulled out with injuries against Spinks and got his face handed to him by Larry Holmes dreadlocks.

Vitali, the most recognised face on the planet next to Ali.
Tyson a bum hardly anybody recognises outside his own country/continent.

Vitali, unified the titles in 2 years
Tyson didnt unify sh*t.

Tyson defeating smaller fatties in boring style
Vitali dominating and destory much larger opponents in devastating fashion

Tysons first loss, nobody cares
Vitalis first loss, the biggest shock in sports history.

You cant have a boxing conversation anywhere in the world, without bringing up the subject of Vitali and how he was unbeatable prime

I can see why Tyson sucks now.

Sorry if the truth hurts but Mike's conditioning and stamina were never his strengths. He looked good when he could knock out some overmatched nobodies in 3 rounds but looked crappy and helpless if he had to go in the 2nd half of the fights and got hit.

orriray watch tyson vs holyfield. when his punches arent killing his opponent then tyson usually gets disheartened, and when he was eating leather from holyfield his defence bob and weave went out the window. now vitalis chin could be as good as evanders, and he hits harder. this wasnt prime tyson but still a decent tyson and vitali hadnt hit prime vs past prime lewis and still looked pretty good. and if anyone were to intimidate tyson it would be vitali. btw i prefer tyson but theres no point looking past these things.

Tyson had all those years of innactivity coming into the Holy fight but watch the fight again, he keeps coming back at Holyfield until the end
