Foreman would have bounced Tyson off the canvas like a basketball....and Tyson always knew it.

Mike Tyson probably could.

Food for thought would be some of the recent hitters that t off on opponents that give windows when hurt; Lamon Brewster. Tua. Corrie Sanders. Klitschko brothers.

I think David Haye and Commander Vander capitalize on that window as well, but they won't do anymore than score a knockdown. The thing with Tyson is that he might go in his non-agressive mode after that and drop the decision or the inclination to be a top shelf predator in there.

Rid**** Bowe landing like Bruno and he definately follows up. I don't think he has enough snap to really end the fight right then, but he can sure hurt him some more and Bowe definately pressed on the heat whenever he got a guy hurt.

I just think the Bruno's/Ruddock/Morrison and those type guys are not capitalizing on that opportunity. I have doubts about Mike absorbing a right hand from Wlad if he was hurt by his lefthook and Wlad thru that A#1 right hand follow up. That punch busted up lots of guys as well and that's a whole different equation to consider.

All i see, and have ever seen, is Bruno swinging a right hand, which landed, and Tyson immediately missing with a left hook which looked worse than what it was. I just dont see what others see here. I dont believe Tyson was hurt.

Not having a pop at Bruno, its just how i see it
I remember an interview with tyson before the second bruno fight and he was asked about the punch. He said it was a decent shot, but he was never in any trouble, just took it and carried on.
I agree that foreman could stop him but tyson, when in good shape, Had excellent punch resistance. Nobody stops him easy

Ever so slightly off topic, but Bruno actually stopped all but 2 of his opponents. One was Oliver Mcall (self explanatory) and the other was a Phil Jackson.

Also, Kevin Rooney was originally left out of this fight by Tyson as 'punishment' for speaking out on Tysons personal affairs involving Givens etc. Tyson was going to bring him back afterwards, but Rooney sued Tyson at the same time, so that basically ended everything.

Tyson also had 8 months inactivity before this fight, his longest ever at the time

It's that Bruno lacked in a lot of areas, but if it is about raw power he ranks with the best.
