Default Mike Tyson('88) vs Lennox Lewis('95)

Both in their primes.
Mike in his early 20's when he used to knock out everyone he faced vs the Lennox that beat Ray Marcer & Tommy Morrison for 15 rounds.

Lewis mid/late KO/DQ.

Relatively easy nights work for him. This is the Tyson that went the distance with shot bonecrusher Smith and had a close fight with Tillis.

Lewis is a stylistic nightmare for Tyson at any part of his career.

his style wasn't a nightmare for 20 year old tyson, he use to eat tall fighters for breakfast, were talking about iron mike, kid dynamite, the baddest man on the planet!! not the Tyson after the Douglas fight that lost speed, power, footwork etc.

I say Mike Tyson by knockout in the first 6 rounds,

I don't see how Lewis stops Tyson from coming in and landing a big shot at some point. Lewis had a shakey chin, and Tyson was an awesome finisher.

95 Lewis had only just been KO'ed by McCall so I'd favour a peak Tyson to KO Lewis in a competitive fight. Lewis simply hadn't had the time to fix his flaws under Steward at that point.

I'd favour the Lewis of 97-00 to beat peak Tyson in a tough fight. Lewis' jab and uppercut will be enough to keep Tyson at bay.

And that was the Lewis that was smoked in 2 by Oliver McCall . Lewis improved with Steward, he was at his peak a few years later.

The style of Lennox Lewis would always give Iron Mike problems. Still, I think at that age Mike Tyson would still be favored to win.

Had it been Lennox Lewis around 98-99 I think I would favor him to win though. He did mature quite a bit under Steward.
