    I'm sure Vitali would consider it, Vitali was going to fight Tyson in 2003 but Tyson lost to Williams so Vitali fought him instead. I always wondered how Mike would have done vs Vitali in 2003

    Vitali would do it, but what would it prove? And would Mike want it?

    Bad idea

    Vitali is past it but much closer to his prime than Mike is.

    In 03, Vitali would have mauled Tyson

    In his prime, Tyson would have won though

    Right now? Bad idea. Vitali would hammer him

    Would have been a terrible fight for Tyson back then. Vitali would have pummeled Tyson with his reach and height advantages. After round 3 Tyson was bound to run out of gas and eventually get stopped later in the fight.

    Vitali is all wrong for Tyson, even prime for prime.

    Vitali knocks out Tyson in the first round. It will end his dream for making a great comeback.

    Vitali would ice Tyson. Back then and even more so now.

    Vitali has a style that ages like fine wine, whilst Tysons style ages like rotten eggs or a womans fertility.

    Vitali Klitschko wins at any time. He's simply better than the beloved and overrated Mike Tyson.

    If Mike had beaten Williams he would have faced Vitali in 04. Vitali would come back for Lewis, but he's too chicken.

    Vitali would outbox Mike Tyson in any era, Vitali's style is just wrong for him...

    "This any era nonsense". Corrie Sanders wobbled Vitali in the 1st round. Peak Mike would have done worse and followed up until Vitali quit like he did against Chris Byrd or stopped on his feet.

    Vitali is to injury ridden for a pressure fighter like Tyson ,I’m not even sure Wlad could handle Mike Tyson now and you would really have to survive the first few rounds to get past Tyson still if he’s down to 230 pounds that means he means business,he’s not planning on just some cameo appearances he’s going to prove a point .
