Default Will Tysons record of youngest Champ ever be beaten?

Just watched Tyson ringside on ESPN.

He just defeated Trevor Berbick to become youngest ever Heavyweight Champion aged 20 years old, and Undisputed Champion within 12 months of that!

Made me think , will this feat ever be beaten?

After how "softly" most British prospects are matched, and inactive they are, im really unsure.

The Heavyweight division during the 80's was better than today and Tyson just ripped through it, Was he just a Genetic freak who was so far advanced at his age. I mean 16 months after his professional debut He was Heavyweight Champion.

Personally I cant see it being beaten , not going on how current fighters are progressed

I would agree it's probably unlikely that that record will go, certainly anytime soon. Different era and things are done differently now.

I was watching it myself. I dont think that it will ever be beaten to be honest. If it were nowadays Tyson would still be fighting bums 16 months after his debut nevermind champion.

Eventually yes. "Youngest", "oldest", "fastest" type records get broken in the end. "First" type ones are for ever....;O)

I'll stick my neck on the line and say yes it will be beaten.

If not I'll give you all a grand.

Floyd Patterson is the youngest ever

Tyson never won THE title until he beat Spinks at the age of just under 22 by 3 days. Paterson won THE title aged 21 years and 10 months.

Tyson was 20 years and 4 months when he beat Berbick for WBC,

What has Spinks got to do with it?

Spinks was THE Champion and Berbick a mere Alphabet title holder. Similar to the difference between Haye and Wladimir now.

but spinks opted out of that tournament.

took 2 gimme's.

he hardly made himself legitimate during that period.

tyson deserves the youngest tag.

will anyone beat it? no.

Spinks still never lost his title until Tyson... Not every Heavyweight Champion has fought a hard opponent everytime.

I doubt it will be beaten.
I doubt his record of youngest to lose the title will be beaten either.

But if we're including Alphabet titles surely it will happen a lot sooner than that?
