Tyson takes on Morrison instead of Buster Mathis jr ??
Ooh crap this is a dangerous fight for a rusty Tyson. A case of who lands first, & seeing how much he missed against Mathis it's a toss up.
Although Morrisons easier to hit than Mathis. Tommys best chance here is to go right after Tyson & try to land the big one, but would probably get caught coming in.
2nd round K.O for Tyson in a wild brawl.

Is it Tommy Gunn Week or something? Did Rock V get a cable showing?
Mathis JR is slick, the Duke is not.
Tyson bombs the Duke out, not unlike the second Bruno fight. Probably quicker.
Tyson gets to him and faster than Mercer
Really exciting fight. 1995 Tyson would probably KOed Tommy early. Would've been fun whilst it lasted.
Mathis was a bit of a defensive slickster, Morrison is anything but, Tyson could still take a punch, i dont think Morrison can.
There is a chance, that Morrison catches Tyson early in the first round and surprises everyone. The reason i say this, Tyson has been caught rushing in in the first round against Tucker, Bruno etc Morrison is a big puncher, so he could hurt Tyson and early, whether he can finish is another thing.
I see a couple of tough early rounds for Tyson, once Tyson gets into his groove, Morrison is going to sleep.
This will probably be one of the few fights were Tyson gets stronger as the fight goes on, Morrisons stamina wasnt all that.
I concur that Tyson would be a heavy favourite here. Morrison's best shot would be to stun 'Rusty Iron' Mike quickly,and cause him to get flustered.
Easy to see Tommy stunning a rusty Tyson early but anytime from round 1 to 5 he'll be on his back.
True. Would have been more entertaining than McNeeley or Mathis though.
Tyson KO2. Morrison could definitely back up or stun Tyson with the left hook, but
Tyson had an atg left hook as well, and more overall power and a better punch repertoire.
Tyson had an atg chin, Morrison had a decent chin. Mike eats some bombs, but catches
Tommy with Power shots and kidney busters. Classic brawl with two rounds of fireworks.
Morrison's head lands in the upper deck after this one
Tyson's chin is pretty tough and a lot better than Morrison's so I am pretty sure it would be a long shot for Morrison to knockout Mike. Also, Morrison is not a good enough boxer to get the decision so I am going to say the only shot that Morrison has is a trigger happy ref TKO stoppage similar to Razor Ruddock fight. Another very possible scenerio is Morrison freezing up like Seldon and getting demolished inside one or two rounds.
Tyson in 1. 2 tops.
Without a doubt mate, Morrison was at least a player in the division in '95 and had a lot more hunger than those two men.
