    I see the fight resembling Tyson/Biggs, but with Ali coming out on top. Biggs was able to outbox Mike fairly easily (bar the last 30 secs) in the 1st round. I see Ali being able to do this for the full 12 (or 15 depending on the stipulation).

    Nice post...how I see it too.

    TBH I'm not sure Tyson could beat Jimmy Young or George Foreman, let alone Ali.

    However, if you ask any fighters in the gym (pro's or am's) and Tyson's usually tipped heavily. Makes me wonder how these hypothetical will score in another generation, when the gravity of what Ali achieved is less understood and Tyson's over-matched highlight reel kayo's are what he;s judged on. Guess we'll see in time.

    Biggs weren’t outboxing Tyson easily at anytime in their fight.

    15 rounds: Ali by decision. Best chin ever, excellent stamina, very good counter puncher. He beat all the best hard hitters.

    12 rounds: Ali by decision or draw like Fury v Wilder I. Chances also for a Tyson win with a score of 7 v 5 rounds.
