Tyson's inside skills were woefully lacking. That's his main weakness and the reason that Holyfield kicked his ass.

Tyson was a hellacious body puncher on the inside, something he almost abandoned by the time he fought Holyfield

Depends on whose textbook you are reading.

His skills with Cus D'Amato's approach were masterful.

Only Ali and Holyfield can brag that he beat better opposition

Tysons opposition was no different anyone elses.

Alot of his wins are also Bowes and Lewis best wins
