Default Re: Will Tysons record of youngest Champ ever be beaten?

Probably not for a long time to become THE champ. Nowadays that is VERY difficult due to the politics of the heavyweight division. It's hard to achieve that even if somebody is capable of it, nevermind doing it at that age. A lot of it is out of a fighters hands, its down to promoters, organizations, and well...a lot of luck.

The feat in itself is very difficult to achieve. Big men can take a while to mature, Tyson was a freak.

At today's standards, they would have to turn pro at about 17/18 because the way prospects are brought along.

Actually I've changed my mind, Shumenov fought for a title after only a handful of fights, who's to say in the current crazy world of boxing that a young sensation couldn't get a title shot at a very young age

it would have to be a big name promoter who wanted to beat the record.

and of course had a young heavyweight good enough to do it.

cos otherwise they'd just take the usual 4 or 5 yrs to build him up.

got a feeling tyson will die with this record intact.

It would have to be a very special talent like Tyson was because Heavyweights take longer to get into their prime.

What has Spinks got to do with it?
The more "world titles" there are, the easy it should be.
To win inside of 20 years of age would mean starting at 16-18 and having quite a few fights in the first couple of years. Maybe a WBO shot if your popular after 12 fights and after beating a few names, or perhaps a top 10 fighter getting lucky or called in at the last minute. Who knows.

Unless you get a top young talent coupled with an ambitious promoter (who can get the fighter on shows every couple of weeks etc. like Tyson was), then no-one will win an Alphabet title as quick as Tyson did.

Patterson should have fought as a light-heavy. Would have been the greatest ever!

The Berbick fight was Tysons 16th fight in 12 months...and his 13 in 1986 alone.

No prosepct will be that busy, unless they too can dispatch most of those opponents in the first few rounds llike he did.
Even then they probably wouldnt be fighting more than once a month.

Fighters are devloped sooo much slower these days...or at least the majority of them.
Some are fast tracked but usually on a soft route.

I do not think this will happen...but all it takes is a another phenom to come along, and who knows...they do spring up every 15-20 years or so...so i think we are due.

Tyson Fury, although not a quater as good as THE Tyson, was on a similar programme for a while.
