Tyson. Although Tua wouldnt be bullied which could have made Tyson start to doubt himself and Tua would pose problems but i think Mikes greater speed and variety would be enuff

Wouldve been similar to Razor Rudduck Tyson 2...except Tua stops him late.

Tyson would catch upto him eventually, possibly even knocking him out.
For the first few rounds though could see it being back and forth,lots of action!

Tyson in 3rd round, Tua's as tough as they come but he'd be beaten to punches. It's hard to beat the master when your the student and especially when the master is in his prime and your using his style to beat him.

This.

But Mike would have knocked Tua out despite the superhuman chin. It doesn't matter, only so many of Tyson's shots you can take and stay up right in that sort of battle.

For me Foreman beats at least 4 of the 6 men you have put in front of him and at worst he would have given the other two a great fight which in one case he did.

Foreman was a beast, do not ever underestimate his grill!!!

Both had brilliant chins, amazing one punch power and were strong bastards that looked to hurt their opponents quickly. The moments before the first bell would be insanely exciting and its a guaranteed shoot out but Tyson had better speed, jab, defence, variety and could throw brilliant combinations in his prime so I think Tua would be blasted out early without being able to get much of an attack going.

Tyson in one round. Seriously, Tua is tailor made for Mike. Youre only chance against a prime Tyson was fast lateral feet and a seriously fast, strong countering jab and backhand, then to tie him up in a clinch, all of which is a lot easier to say than to execute.

The sort of idiot who's spent the past 2 years trolling the forum with around 30 alias accounts posting random photo's and video's to ruin threads.
