    Ranked or not, Tyson is too old to last more than a round or two, even against a tomato can. If his opponent is too terrible to finish him off early(McBride style, a decade and a half ago), Tyson will collapse in exhaustion by himself midway through the second round.

    I sincerely hope all this return talk is nothing serious. If he's going to have exhibition fights like the one he had with Cory Sanders, then it's fine. But anything "ranked" and serious is beyond outlandish.

    Imagine he flapped his arms and flew to the moon, it would automatically make him, like, really, really great.

    Tyson and Trump are basically the same kinda people. Alpha as hell, do things everyone tell em they can't do, achieve victory no matter what they said. I believe he can be champion again if he wants to be. I believe he could follow Trump as president if he wanted to after that. He won't be apologizin everytime some bleeding heart cucktard want him to for saying whatever. He'll just win over the salt of the earth people who aren't worried about that and go right to the top like he did in the eighties. The playing field is wide open for any real men left in this world to achieve just about any damn thing they want to! In the holy spirit and the face of the nation, boy, I'll tell you what, only in America.

    Fury loses WBC belt for some reason ... Wilder Tyson fight for it.

    If anyone can make this scenario happen, it's Wilder.

    Just a reminder, 49 y/o Vitali can fight Fury any time he wants and many would give him a decent chance.

    A lot of goddamn dream killers on this forum.
    Tyson wants to rise up like a blazing phoenix.
    And you want him to wallow in the smoke of dope and death.
    Just like Wlad said, ''Age is just a number.''

    Even IF Tyson somehow got a ranking in the WBC, there is no way Fury would fight him. Fury adores Tyson too much. He would rather vacate his title than facing the shell of Mike Tyson.

    The talk of a comeback seems silly to me, if it's anything other than charity exhibition bouts. Not that Tyson couldn't still beat some pros. By the same token, 70 yr old Foreman and Holmes could still beat some people too. Doesn't mean they should be back in the ring though.

    Talk of Tyson facing any real contender is nuts. However, I do agree with the previous poster regarding Fres Oquendo. Oquendo, for no good reason, keeps popping up in the ratings although he's been finished for many many years. Not sure I'd bet on him against Tyson! By the same token, there are probably 4 and 6 round prelim kids who could beat either right now.

    Corruption at its finest.... Let’s make money by using a man with accomplishments from 20-30 years ago . Disgraceful and shows what a sham the Abc organizations are.

    George Foreman was spotted hitting the bag in Texas last week I’ll bet they try and rank him now also.

    Like Don King once said, there is the boxing business, and the Mike Tyson business.

    Mike will create lots of interest and that will generate lots of money.

    That means in the privacy of his own home he beat up himself ,took some beer bottles to and crashed them over his head causing a TKO , Fury beat Tyson ....Tyson Fury .

    Fury wouldn’t be on M.Tysons radar ,we have the Wilder and AJ fights that puts him about 2022 if it were even possible. M.Tysons window wouldn’t exceed it,I’m a supporter of his comeback because I know he defeats an Ortiz who actually had medical issues but no one says he shouldn’t box ? Anyway ,M.Tyson can defeat most guys with ample training if he’s serious and is not doing anything that hinders his performance.

    Maybe i dont understand something but what i get from that statment is that they would rank Tyson if he paid senction fees and did drug testing.

    Meaning if he made proper comeback and fought low rated guys he would get ranked in wbc system minor titles ect. According who he beat.

    There is no talk about imediate shot at title.

    What they mean is that they would not block him if he passed medical tests ect.

    At least thats what i got from what Sullimain said there.
