Default Why do people say Tyson could have handled Foreman?

They say he's too slow for Tyson and all that bull****. But look at his fight Evander, he fought a very close fight and gave Holyfield more trouble then Tyson ever did nor could. So why is it that people defend Tyson when he clearly ducked Foreman. They say because he would have man handled him and would have been criticized for beating up an old man. Holyfield didn't duck Foreman and was hit the hardest in his career. Much harder than Tyson. So why do people constantly defend Tyson who ducked every big challenger in his prime, then lost to them later? He ducked Holyfield for years. Then lost to him. Ducked Lennox Lewis (also had to pay Lewis $3 million for doing so) then lost to him later. Ducked a fight with Shavers in the 80's. Universally known that he was terrified of Foreman. Teddy Atlas said that Cus and Tyson's trainers wanted to sheild him. They fed him bum after bum to boost his confidence.

How could you say Holyfield was hit hardest by Foreman when guys like Cooper, Bowe and RUiz are the ones who KDd Evander.

And oh, the 80s Tyson would have definitely performed better than the 96 Tyson that Evander fuoght.
