I think Tyson wins by KO when taken in their perspective primes. Tim however, had the style, guts and physical attributes to stand up to him for several rounds though.

Tyson stops him around 9. I think highly of Spoon, his craftiness, and power, but I just think a prime Tyson would eventually blow through that craftiness.

Tyson wins a 15 round decision, I think Tim can take his punch.

I like Tim, but Mike is all wrong for him. Tim doesn't like that kind of pressure Mike can put on people, I have a feeling this will end badly for Tim.. much like his rematch with Bonecrusher.

I dont see much difference in Spoon then the rest of the fighters that Tyson was knocking out. Spoon didnt react too well to pressure either in the Crusher fight.

I think Witherspoon because of his great courage and solid chin would make a nice account of himself against Mighty Mike. But that doesn't mean he would win. Tyson would get to Terrible Tim later in the fight after some excellent exchanges.

Tyson KO 9 Spoon

Not all of Spoon's punches are as wild as his right hand, but I think he really needs that punch to get to Tyson. Witherspoon's jab is not quality enough, on its own, to keep Tyson on the outside. I don't believe Witherspoon's right hand would be effective on the shorter, elusive, Tyson. Tyson could beat him to the punch on the inside, and I really can't see Witherspoon having any better outing than Jesse Ferguson.
