Default Peter vs prime Tyson

Did Mike have enough pop to KO Peter?

A prime tyson moved too much and had too good a defense (yes he did, study your tapes) for peter to deal with. those slow, looping right hands wouldn't hit a prime tyson more than once or twice out of ten throws. personally i think tyson would just swarm peter too much, duck and head jive preventing peter from loading up and would nail him with a killer uppercut.

the way tyson would step out of the way, duck down and then load up and use his leverage from being ducked down would ko almost anyone. i think tyson starches peter in about 4 or 5.

I don't think that it's a question on if Tyson would KP peter. It's more a question of how long it would take him. I'm thinking 3 rounds.

yeah thats a good prediction, I agree with that. prime Mike was actually a good boxer believe it or not, or as I like to call it pre jail tyson. Had fast hands, good headmovement, unbelieveable power. He would take Peter

Peter has the perfect style for Mike to shine against. He's not very good defensively, he's slow, and he comes right at you.

This would be way too much of an over match. The biggest problem heavyweights had with a prime Tyson was his speed. Power was another issue, but they weren't able to punish him while he was able beat the crap out of them. In this case, Peter is slower than the average heavyweight..his only life span on this fight would be how long his chin would hold up. I take Tyson on a 4 round KO by a blow to the body.
Til this day there hasn't been a heavyweight with such a combo of speed and power as Tyson. He was in the "40/40" club of boxing if you will.

Tyson was a monster in his prime. He would have overwhelmed with speed and power. He was a very "slick" HW. I pick rd 3.

Peter is not Spinks.

I don't like betting on Tyson against anyone with an iron chin and that is not afraid of him.

Tyson by a UD, but I could see Peter knocking out Tyson late after he tired and most likely would give up. Tyson would not and could not knock out Peter. Period.

Tyson KO 2-5 rounds.

Unlike Wlad who just threw a decent 1-2 and ran off allowing Peter to recover, Tyson throws in combinations and if he landed a good shot you better believe hes gonna follow up with BOMBS.

Exactly, it's so ridiculous it's painful. And the cult is so bad that any half-decent fighter with a similar style becomes equally over-rated.
(Yes, I'm thinking of Lacy here...)
