Default Re: Klitschko - Tyson

I find it stupid how some people on here look at the difference in height between a middle-aged Tyson and a prime Vitali and just assume Vitali kicks his ass. Madness.
Tyson was an animal who would give Vitali has much has he can handle, if not more than he could handle.
Let's not forget how weak Vitali's skin is, and how fast a young Tyson punched. That's a recipe for cuts right there.

How long did an old shot Tyson last against LL and then compare how long a prime Vitali lasted against LL.

Vitalis claim to fame...."i was beating (old) Lennox before the fight was stopped."

Well, so was Frank ****ing Bruno!

This is for those who dont seem to remember Tyson in his prime

One thing I would bet the house on is that Vitali has an infinitely better chance than Wladimir against Tyson

The only fight I remember Mike inflicting cuts on his opposition was the first Bruno fight IIRC. And Holyfield's ear if one wants to count that. Any other ones?

But did anyone cut as easy as Vitali other than Henry Cooper?

I see your point azzer, others won't. Remember each fight is different.

But yeah it's preposterous to pick a winner just on height alone. Which is happening here.

Bruno was no mug either!

At cutting his jaw , maybe .
And while Vitali is really not above 6'6" , Tyson is below 5'10"

I once read that Tyson was seen standing next 2 ray leonard who was listed as a 5'10" and leonard seemed taller . d exaggerations of d lists r usually more than 1" . It is possible that Leonard used high heels though .
And besides , Vitali won't just stand there and let him . Seriously , Tyson could not reach Vitali's jaw in a fight or in a sparring session . Never , unless Vitali goes down 2 his knees and Tyson hits him then .

i have seen tyson listed as 5'9 in some tale of the tapes. Not trusting don king and other modern publicity agents, it wouldnt surprise me. Saying that, size never stopped him from hitting Bruno, along with many other modern giants.
