    Whenever the 54 year old Mike Tyson decides to land those explosive hooks to Wilders fragile mandible Wilder would be down and out.

    No he wouldn’t, you do realize just because he looks good on the pads doesn’t mean he can ko the current champions, he’s 54 years old and smokes pot all the time, you people need to stop

    Wilder was dropped by way worse opponets like Nichols and Sconiers. So better puncher like Mike Tyson would sure drop Wilder too.

    No. Wilder would blitz him...early. Old Tyson can have only few strong sprints (like those you can see in the video) for maximum 3 or 4 rounds imo...sad to say but in short words he could win only with a lucky combo in the first round. In medical terms his connections brain-heart-body are not longer the same than when he was young. Besides with the passing of the time his external intimidating energetic aura has changed too. Only a fighter like Foreman was able to be champion again as an old man thanks to a rare genetics...even if I doubt George could have won a title at 54 years old.

    Why do you say that, because he looks good on the pads??? Watch Tyson’s last two fights

    Exactly.

    Foreman had two advantages over Tyson if we are comparing the comeback Foreman against 2020 Tyson

    He was younger, fresher and a trained athlete.

    He was also MUCH bigger naturally than Tyson as well as having a natural size advantage over his opponents even then. The dude was 6ft4 and 260lbs!

    Tyson should try and fight Danny Williams and Kevin McBride again. His knees are gone, one windmill and it would be over.

    depends what you mean by "club fighter".

    a guy like, whathisname, the one who Dubois beat on his debut, marcus kelly, would IMO comfortably have the beating of Tyson provided he could make the fight last say two or three rounds. Tyson is *not* an exceptionally well preserved 54 year old. He's carrying a decent amount of bodyfat, very short for a heavyweight, and almost certainly has fairly mediocre cardio even for his age.

    To beat 54 years old Mike Tyson is not so hard to do. Protect yourself and avoid being hit in the first 3 - 4 rounds until Tyson gasses then it's time to pay back. The same tactic as Lennox did to him.
