Fear shouldn't be confused with the wise restraint a boxer should use in not getting engaged in anything that may cause an injury not related to the boxing ring where he gets paid to withstand injuries.

Everyone should be scared of Tyson outside

the ring. The guy was a nut case (sorry HANDS OF IRON)

But he was a legit nut a lot of times..... and probably on different drugs.

I said it that night, and I still maintain, Tyson was "sedated" in that fight, it wasn't him at all, he barely through anything.

People shortly afterwards commented and looked into Tysons "MEDS" at the time. LL was indeed lucky, because Tyson would have neutralized him with not much more than it took too nullify others!
bump.

Of course that Lewis was afraid .
Yes. Tyson would have destroyed Lewis if they entered the pros
at the same time.

This is the reason the whole "never got off the canvas to win" criteria is bullshit. How about considering what it actually takes to put him there in the first place? Aside from an off balance flash KD in 1996, he was put on the canvas twice between 1985-2002 and got the absolute shit beat out of him by significantly larger men (both of which possessed a very good deal of skill) before he could be put on the canvas.

Agree. Iron Mike took shots against Lewis in 2002, before getting stopped,
that would have finished many heavyweights. He had an atg chin. Refresh
my memory on the flash knockdown in 96.

It happened in the 6th round, getting caught off balance.

Pretty solid I reckon.

But the dude was a quitter. Look at how he just stops throwing punches and folds like a cheap lawn chair when the other bigger man punches him

It can be abbreviated:

That had a lot to do with Lewis, dont get me wrong. Lennox is absolutely massive. Combined with the skills and power he had, he could beat any Heavyweight champion in history. I'm not a "Prime Tyson" clown, but christ even the '96 version wouldve tested his chin a few times.

The fight just wasnt in good taste. Lennox could rate higher without Mike on his resume. But that was ugly.
He was also taking medication at the time.....& it showed.

Unfortunately, Lewis would've beat him up even if he wasn't. Lewis would always be a problem.

Yeah he would've won anyway. His size would always pose a problem.

Maybe the Tyson of the Bruno re-match has a good chance.

Pre prison it's Tyson all the way.
