    Best versions of both. Joshua is tall, quick, powerful, and a good combination puncher who can box. He’s definitely more dangerous than anyone prime Tyson fought. I’ll go with a prime Mike for now as AJ doesn’t react well to clean shots landing and your getting combinations of hard shots with Tyson. I also don’t see mike having too much trouble reaching AJ’s chin as he has a habit of being stationary, but AJ is still an always dangerous offensive force. Who takes it?

    AJ`s height wouldn`t have been a problem for Mike who beat the 6'5 Tucker, Mike was also quicker at getting into punching positions, Povetkin landing Tyson like hooks on the inside v AJ, Tyson was a far better finisher, AJ doesn`t have Ruddock`s one punch power, Tyson was a better combo puncher and threw more combo`s too and Tyson was a far more skilled boxer with a far better corner also, total destruction and Mike would have destroyed Pulev with ease also.

    Tyson KO inside 3-5. Looks similar to both Bruno fights. Also, if Mike had AJ hurt the way Ruiz did in the 3rd of the 1st fight, he would have finished him off soon after.

    Joshua is too hittable. Way too hittable.

    I give Fury a better chance vs Mike. Joshua may stun Tyson once or twice but Mike would maul him. Too much speed and power.

    We can't overlook how hard prime Tyson was to hit. Joshua would have to reach down to hit an elusive target.

    Similar to Bruno fights except Tyson's defense had declined by the time he fought Bruno. Tyson mauls him.

    Tyson tko 3

    I really don’t think it would look like the Bruno fights. Joshua’s bigger, faster, and more skilled than Bruno

    Tyson cracks that china in 1 or 2. Joshua is Spinkslike terrified before the fight.

    Joshua struggled vs pressure fighters, both in amateurs and professionally.

    He also held on as much as Bruno did v Pulev, everytime Mike got in AJ would clinch like Frank did.

    Ouch, poor AJ. He might hear the third round opening bell. Maybe.

    Tyson even without being 'the' Tyson is an awkward opponent for a guy who is nearly 6 ft 6. A lot is being made out of the fact that Ruiz stunned and stopped Joshua but I don't think that AJ would be so contemptious of Tyson in a real fight. I see it going the distance and it could be a close call for either guy. Tyson even in his prime definitely slows down after a few rounds so AJ could nick rounds on workrate. Plus he has the power to stop Mike walking through him.
