    I once saw a picture of Sonny Liston walking through a group of men armed with ax handles on strike,,Sonny was paid to break it up and the mob parted like the red sea for Moses when Liston came threw. Liston would kill him

    I would favor the group of men with axe handles, actually, depending on the number. (LOL)

    Well, Liston was famously nervous around crazy people. And Mike Tyson definitely had his moments.

    I have nowhere seen Riddick Bowe. I think, he was also from the same neighborhood as Mike Tyson. That was also the reason, why they didn't want to fight each other. I don`t know, whether they met in the streets of Brooklyn.

    In a street fight? I'm sure would beat Tyson in a street fight. Of course, Tyson would wipe the floor with almost anyone in his prime. But boxing rules don't apply in street fights where guys can use grappling or MMA-type skills. If Tyson doesn't KO his guy with the first punch, he would be in trouble against certain guys. He can't box his way out of a headlock, scissors or an arm bar.

    Not these imo:

    Holyfield : king of brawls and tough headbutter
    Lewis Bowe Foreman: too big to drop even if Tyson used kicks.
    Vitali and Mercer: good kickboxers
