Yeah Tyson at this time would be to much for Morrison I could see him taking Morrison out in the first round and would expect him to forsure have him out of there by the 3rd.

They have quite similar style, both guys are inside fighters. Morrison copied some tricks to his game by watching Tyson. I see that Tyson is the A-level fighter and Morrison is B-level fighter in their style similarity.

Tyson wins by KO in 1 minute.

Morrison would do very well to make it out the first three rounds. It looks for the time period a horrible match up for the young Machine Gunn.

Morrison was a much better in-fighter and I see him beating Tyson to the punch with his left hook.

Most one-sided mismatch on this forum since 70's Foreman vs Haye.

Morrison while a good in fighter was more open defensivly. Tyson likely would have caught him in-between punches. Tyson ko3 IMO.

Morrison has no chance. I mean, Mercer almost killed him.
Tyson was already a bit off in '91, but he was still a bit of a monster.

Tyson by brutal KO inside of 6 rounds. I do think it would be an exciting fight for as long as it last though.

Morrison would be 2 1/2 - 5" taller (depending on the source) with a 5" longer reach and 5-10 Lbs. heavier. A lot of guys Tyson fought had similar "advantages" and it meant nothing. What Morrison did have was power in both hands especially his left hook, good hand speed, and a high work-rate. We all know his chin was not the best though.

Does he try to stay away from Tyson like he did against an old George Foreman? Would that work against Tyson, who was much quicker than Foreman and excellent at cutting the ring off?

Tyson was still a pretty good fighter in 91, not as efficient as he was in 88, but still very quick and powerful...

I don't see this ending well for the Duke, I see a Ray Mercer type ending maybe not as brutal, but Morrison still gets stopped..

Tyson KO 6..

Yet Tommy beat the p*ss out of him for three rounds and only for Ray's cast-iron chin had been a goner.

This is true, but Mercer was not Mike Tyson. Man I really wanted Morrison to win... he had looked very impressive up to that point in his career, and how about that jaw on Mercer!
