Tyson and his management thought Foreman could beat Mike. I'm not one to argue with Mike and his management.

Foreman was too big for Tyson to bully, wouldn't have frozen in fear of Tyson's reputation, was durable enough to stand up to Tyson's best shots and powerful enough to hurt him in return, not to mention his the height and reach advantage he had. I'd favor any version of Foreman over any version of Tyson, and prime against prime I'd expect Foreman to win by KO.

Not sure about the old Foreman, but I agree Foreman with his size would present problems.

Ive always been shocked how people always quickly dismiss PRIME Tysons chances against a PRIME Foreman . In my opinion Tyson is equally as big of a threat as Foreman is to him . Standing in front of George would have been one of the fastest fighters hes ever fought . Foreman can punch like hell , Yet he will be looking into a mirror cause Cause Tyson can also punch like hell . Tyson was no doubt way quicker than Frazier , his excellent head movement combined with Foremans slowness equals a potentially long hard night for Foreman . I dont have a prediction for this fight because i can see either fighter winning , This fight can very well go the distance as well . TOSS UP .

I got Tyson, he was way more elusive and had equally devastating power. It's not an easy fight for either man.

Could have went either way but Tyson's superior speed and head movement would have made Foreman struggle and Tyson would then Knock him out

But I think you could only make a substantial bet on Tyson. Foreman is an uncoordinated oaf by comparison and he'd only be very lucky to catch Iron Mike who would ordinarily make short and brutal work of him!
See Frazier fight

If tyson didn't nail Foreman fast, I think Tyson would gas out and then its night night.
Foreman loved swarmers, my bet would be on Big George

I agree! All these people saying how Tyson is another Joe Frazier and look at what happend to him are I believe really wrong here. Tyson was WAY better - faster by MILES, more intelligent...could KO you with both hands. Peak Tyson for me KO's George and inside 4 rounds. Short fight because neither would need to go looking for the other guy. Tyson for me - easily has the power and more importantly SPEED KILLS. Foreman was more of a wild swinger...Ali mocked him in the build up to the Rumble in the Jungle about how George telegraphs his bombs.

Tyson all day for me. Not even a doubt in my mind.
