    It would have been a lot more dangerous than any successful title defense Mike ever made.

    Are you the black fellow in your avatar sitting with Ray Mancini leaning over your shoulder?

    Holyfield is still a 1st ballot HOFer.

    Tyson and Lewis would’ve probably fought sooner. Maybe even as early as 1996-97.

    He wouldn’t have as many good wins but he’d have a much cleaner record without so many losses and would likely be healthier these days .

    Holyfield did the same in their first fight Lewis is a lot stronger than Holyfield.

    This is mid to late 90's Tyson not the Tyson of the 80's.

    One thing of note- Tyson may not have met Lewis till just as late. No Holyfield and Tyson drops an L to someone less skilled and most likely splits a trilogy. Tyson followed Money he was not in it for the legacy at all by then. Lennox was simply not a good enough draw worth the risk in the same manner as the early stages of Floyd Mayweathers career.
