    Tyson within 6...I don’t like AJ going against Tyson Frazier or dare I say Marciano. All are to good of pressure fighters for him.

    To me...if Ruiz knocked the hell out of him, AJ would be screwed even worse against Frazier, Tyson, Foreman, possibly Lyle...

    Emphatic win for Tyson.

    I can just picture Tyson's head movment, ducking and bobbing in close then that sharp right to the body followed instantly with a devastating and perfectly timed right uppercut flush on the underside of AJs chin - BOOM!.

    To use Frank Bruno's quote after his loss to Tyson I think "he'd be on AJ like a harbour shark"

    Joshua is gonna have a bad night if he's in there with Mike at his best. His weakness happens to be Mike's specialty....quick pressure with fast counter punching. Tyson's defensive capabilities coupled with his power and accuracy would leave Joshua on the canvas before the 6th.

    I do think Joshua is better than Frank Bruno, but for the same reasons why Bruno got stopped, Joshua would too. Tyson would move in on him quickly, hit him good and hard, with blazing speed, and that chin/defense would not hold up. Joshua could stick and move a bit, but that only delays the inevitable. He could crack Mike a good one here and there as did Bruno, but there was no stopping that relentless freight train.

    Tyson via brutal KO. Even if Joshua hurts him, or even knocks him down (doubtful), Joshua has been shown to not only be a poor finisher, but leaves himself vulnerable to be finished as well. If he EVER walks in on Tyson like he did to Ruiz after knocking him down, Tyson will counter him to death with ease, and it's nighty-night for Joshua.

    Tyson by KO5 and likely even earlier. Joshua just struggles with small pressure fighters that can throw quick combinations and short quick fighters in general. Example: Povetkin and Ruiz. It's just a nightmare match up for him.

    AJ gives a decent account of himself for about two or three rounds but Tyson's pressure and body work fold him at around the fourth to fifth round.
