Tyson wasn't the same post prision. Bowe for a while was a great fighter. Early 1990's, I pick Bowe.

Tyson beat Ruddock in the early 90s, who hit harder than Bowe and was more dangerous

Bowe doesn't survive and would be slurring his speech worst than he is today

Tyson via stronger punch, stronger chin, better defense, better offense, superior skill, faster hands, better combos, superior intimidation, and unorthadoxness

For the first five rounds, Bowe's infighting skills would give Tyson fits.But after that, Mike's speed and precision would get to the oft-hit Bowe, and register a kayo in the ninth round.

How about the mayhem leading up to and during the bout? Something always happened with Bowe and Tyson was no slouch in the crazy department either, lol.

He might have had more power packed into a single punch.. But Bowe had power in both hands and could launch a two-fisted attack. Both fighters had crap defense, but Bowe was arguably the more durable and more well rounded of the two. Prime Tyson probably beats Bowe. But any time after Rooney's departure, and more particularly following the Douglas loss, I'd have to make Riddick the favorite.

The Riddick Bowe who fought Holyfield the first time was a great fighter...he was hungry (literally) and it showed.......The Riddick Bowe who exposed Jorge Luis Gonzalez also was something to behold......It's a pick em fight really, both could do damage.

Tucker, Smith, Green, etc. I think Mike's handspeed, combinations, ability to slip the jab and relentless attacks, when under the training of Kevin Rooney would enable him to out work Bowe on points.
But apart from Holyfileld, Tyson did better against all mutual opponents with Bowe

Biggs, Tubbs, Mathis, Seldon, Golota

Saw Bowe v Golota II yesterday, he worked Bowe like a MF. Prime Tyson eats Bowe up.

Tyson made Golota QUIT after one round.

Apparently that punch which knocked Golota down broke most of his facial bone.

Tyson gave that guy serious injuries

Prime Tyson is too much for any mere human to handle ... he'd brutalize Bowe

Bowe would try to fight Tyson at mid-range, with uppercuts, hooks, and overhand rights. He could not be relied upon to use his range, his incredible jab, and his classic, Futch-trained distance skills.

Is there a WORSE way to fight Mike Tyson?


Tyson TKO 5.

He would do better if he fought Tyson inside as Tyson was rather weak there.

Well, the way I see it, he's gonna land those hooks and uppercuts, and Tyson wasn't bullet-proof either.
