Default If Tyson Never Went to Jail...

What if Cus didn't die, Tyson didn't go to jail, and he wasn't a nutcase? Would he be an ATG?

He is an ATG as it stands.
From what I understand the D'Matto style was not meant for long careers. Floyd Patterson was a shell of himself by 30. Jose Torres was don at 33. With or with out prison Mike Tyson is goning to be on the down side of his career by 1997.
Lets say he beats Douglas lets say Buster Douglas fails to beat the count in the 8th round. In November of 1990 he fights and beats Evander Holyfield. In March of 1991 he fights and beats Razor Ruddock and again June. He finishes the year with a rematch win over Douglas. June 1992 wins a rematch with Holyfield. November of 1992 Loses to Riddick Bowe. May of 1993 Beats Lennox Lewis for the WBC. November 1993 loses again to Bowe. July 1994 beats Ray Mercer. December 1994 beats Bruce Selden. June 1995 beats Tommy Morrison. November 1995 Loses rematch with Lewis. March 1996 beats Frank Bruno. November 96 edges Michael Moorer. March 1997 Moorer wins the rematch. Febuaray 1997 loses to Shannon Briggs. Shortly after anounces his retirement from boxing. Probbly makes one or two comeback attempts none leading to a world championship.
