Tyson had no prime. Unless you think his prime was going 12 with Mitch 'Crack Head " Green or going 12 with jerry curly crack head Tony Tucker. When was this supposed Tyson prime when he was beating world class fighters? Wait it never happened.

Lewis didn't fear Tyson and had a good jab so no version of Tyson could beat a in shape Lewis.

There is a recent & detailed thread of Tyson's competition in his prime, & a great case was made that his competition was pretty good by usual KW champion standards-& slightly better than Ali in the '60's. Obviously Mike did worse when both were past their physical prime, but you will have no way to differ with the itemized list of who he fought & what their record was before & after Mike fought.

You can mock & selectively bash anyone's competittion, & all ATGs fought many bums. Even Green & Tucker were quite telented, despite the constant grabbing of Green. Did Ali have no prime due to many of the guys he faced being past their prime, & Williams literally & figuratively shot before they fought? Marciano a bum because he fought guys past their prime?

No, you triangulate how good all were at the time & do not punish greats because they almost never can fight other peak or near peak ATGs like in the FOTC.

Lewis had all the tools to beat Tyson but in his PRIME mike was a visicous combination puncher with a good chin.this is a tough call but if mike got to him early I believe he would knock him out if it went past 5 rounds & mikes adrenalin started to fade Lenox would put something together & put him away.

Both men were past it when they fought. But I think Tyson was virtually "shot" while Lewis still had some gas in the tank. 14 years earlier at the age of 21, with Rooney in his corner, fully well conditioned, and actively beating contenders multiple times per year, Tyson would have been a totally different animal. He had so much more upper body movement, stamina, punch resistance, hand speed, workrate and skills that would later be abandoned. The hunger aspect would be a factor too.

Its anyone's fight, but I am inclined to leaning towards THAT earlier version of Tyson.

Same fight as when they were kids. Tyson takes the first, part of the second, Lennox has him worked out and dominates from then on for as many rounds as they're both standing, And only one of them will be, which is why he is still the last linear, undisputed World Champion that beat every fighter he fought
