Ali by UD.
Because Tyson was sick for the fight. He didnt have that much trouble anyway, Tillis won 3 rounds tops.

And I could use the same logic for Ali, if he is so good against Tyson then why did he get dropped and nearly stopped by Cooper?

As much as I love Iron Mike, Ali would deal with mentally before the fight. He'd make Mike doubt himself, and a Tyson who doesn't believe in himself can't beat Ali.
It would be close for a while, but down the stretch Ali would prevail, possibly by stoppage.

If you took the Tyson who beat Spinks in 88' and took the Ali from 66' who beat Cleveland Williams (I think that would be the time they were in their respective primes). If they were to fight each other, Ali would keep Tyson on the end of his jab all night long and win a comfortable UD.

There isn't a man that has walked this earth who could have beaten that version of Ali. He was untouchable.

I used to have a magazine which did a great feature on Tyson, with great info on every one of his fights.

Tyson himself admitted that the combination of the flash knockdown (where hardman Tillis famously smiles then gets back up) and the home crowd sneaked him the decision.

It was much closer than you guys are making out.

Hardly " struggling"
