    :lol:

    It's loud mouthed blinkered know nothings like you that turn your average unbiased posters completely off Tyson.

    The great irony of it all is that you don't even realize.

    I've never been sold on Bowe, despite beating up a prime Evander. But I'm sure an immortal Bowe would have plenty of time to prove me wrong.

    Hey, I'll have you know that "Mike Tyson BRUTAL KNOCKOUTS!!!1" included only the finest Roy Jones rap music, and I made sure to use the same tried-and-true clips from the hundreds of other Tyson knockout videos. As is tradition. No winging it and hoping for the best in my productions.

    It might be more enlightening if you make a dedicated thread arguing for Tyson being the GOAT, and present your best arguments in full.

    Our standards were never really very high, to be honest. Remember Revolver? Britney Spears Guy? That Cross_Trainer weirdo? (No offense if he's still posting, but seriously.)

    I should add that I'm not sniping. If he has an argument, I want to hear it defended at length.

    I'm not arguing Tyson is the GOAT, far from it. He ruined his career and never fulfilled his full potential. So, on a greatest list, he's in the second half of the top 10.
    What I am arguing is that prime vs prime, h2h, Tyson is probably the best ever, or top 3 in the worst case scenario.
    So that means if we had a time machine, brought all the ATG HWs at their best in this timeline, created a tournament, round robin style, where everybody fights everybody 3 times, Tyson ends up with the best scoreline of wins vs defeats.
