Not one of those guys could have taken Tyson on their best day.

Tyson beats all of them, and likely looks better than Louis doing it.

Styles.

For all the disliking I can mount up for the YouTube generation that idolizes Tyson (Understandable too). Tyson has to be at the very worst a top 3 HW when it comes to H2H. I would probably rank him #2 H2H and if pressed long enough I could easily picture ranking him #1. He is that phenomenal and special, and I think it's not a coincidence that he does so well against so many styles. He's just that excellent, dangerous, and destructive.

Tyson by KO no question. Walcott could give him hell but he's just not strong enough.

He beats the shit out of them all. Walcott gives him some trouble but he loses as well. Fights with Max Baer, Carnera, and Braddock are exciting for as long as they last but that's not very long.

A nonvictim..Charles, at his peak, would have been a formidable foe vs Tyson, but alas, it's off topic.

Tyson would have trouble with some of those. I don't think he'd do any better results-wise than Louis did. There's no reason why he should. Too many different styles there to say "he does better, it's a styles thing".
No, he'd have to be favoured to win them all, KO the majority, but who knows, he'd at least struggle with one or two of them.

Baer
Walcott
Godoy

should be the best chances against him, but Tyson should still win - though a Douglas kind of upset could happen with that old slickster Walcott...

Baer might give him some thought & Godoy was pretty tough, though not offering much back.

Tyson is arguable the BEST HW that has ever lived Peak 4 Peak.

None of them would go past the 5th round and many would get blown out in the first 2 rounds, can you imagine Tyson against Conn

Tyson was a far more skilled boxer than Louis and fought in a much superior era
