Mike Tyson used to help his opponents up to their feet after he knocked them out, just the same way that his hero Jack Dempsey used to do

True of his first career when he remained mentally stable, not so much his second career.

George Foreman used some mental tricks of Ali to psych out his opponents, he knew from Zaire how important the mental aspect plays out. An example was during the weigh in for Moorer, when he stepped off the scale with glasses Foreman confronted him and said something along the lines of "What's the matter boy you afraid to look me in the eye?".

Too many boxers to count mimicked SRR, but there was only ONE Sugar; the rest were artificial sweetener.

True, i think Tyson mimicked the body punches of Floyd quite a bit as well especially the 4 or 5 rib shots in quick secession

I think he also took the Gazelle punch from Patterson. Looked different when Tyson did it tho because he stayed so low to the ground and used a very short left hook as opposed to a looping one, same move implemented differently.

Would have loved to have seen Skelton and Peter fight an entire twelve rounder doing that. Would have been utterly epically surreal.
