The only way I see Tyson winning by TKO is when he nails Peter on the ropes and the ref stops it. But Tyson wouldnŽt have KOŽed Peter.
But I think a UD Tyson would be likely.

This may surprise some of you but I'd give Peter a live shot at stopping Tyson.

Tyson had it easy as long as he wasn't getting hit back. Yes Ruddock fought him tooth and nail but Ruddock's chin isn't even close to what Sam is packing. I like both the Nigerians : Ibeabuchi and Peter to give Tyson some of his toughest fights.

Also the guys who Tyson KO'd were not known for having iron chins. Holmes himself in his prime had been down before as were others like Smith, Tubbs and Thomas. Tucker was known for having a decent chin and he extended Tyson. Really as a rule of thumb if a guy was known to take a great shot Tyson wasn't knocking him out. Tyson had great power, but not that kind of great.

Tyson on the other hand packed a good chin. Not poor, but not great. In 5 out of 6 defeats Mike Tyson was stopped. Yes I know I am using statistics past his prime but durabilty is the last thing to go.

Head to head I could see Tyson's style giving Sam problems at long range. But once inside Tyson would have to trade and make himself available. Peter doesn't do all that bad himself at short range and can find guys with that left hook. Tyson coming out of the uppercut is also vunerable to that left hook. But Tyson would only really do alot of damage over the first 3-4 rounds. We saw Peter eat punch after punch from Waldo, who is also a huge hitter, for a full 12 rounds. Eventually Tyson would fade and Sam would lilkely still be standing there.

Tyson was great against the big guys who presented a big target, who didn't have the best chins in the world. Against guys like Ibeabuchi, Peter, Tua, McCall, and other iron chins he would be in some trouble. That would likely stem from his style and his stamina.

I don't see how Peter has a chance here. He has an iron chin because Klitchsko landed lots of clean, powerful shots on him but Wlad didn't open up a whole lot like Tyson would

One thing is certain, if Klitschko would be on those shaky legs against a prime Mike, he would get obliterated immediately!

great post

Anyone who thinks that Peter had some kind of chance is deluding themselves. Wlad was using Peter's head as a punching bag, Peter has no defence. Prime Tyson's offensive arsenal is far superior to Wlad's. Peter would suffer a beating and the ref would stop the fight within 3-4 rounds.

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 could knock out any heavy that got in the ring with him, a prime tyson had excellent stamina, was focused, and ferocious, peter has never fought anyone remotely resembling tyson in speed and power. Tyson was very good defensively in his prime, very hard to hit, and countered quickly, explosively, and very accurately with one punch ko power. This would be the first time peter would be hurt repeatedly and forced to fight backing up once he felt tysons power he would be on the defensive and he would certainly be the recipient of the most damage tyson was a much better boxer than peter in every dept including power, better defesively, and offensively, tyson wins this fight in my opinion by mid rd brutal ko.
