    I found it weird how everyone was saying Ryder was so small compared to Smith, yet Ryder’s legs looked twice as big as Smith’s.

    Speaking of Mike Tyson, you can only weigh 220lbs at 5'10 with that little bodyfat, in an aerobic sport no less, when you are roided out of your mind.

    Even athletic 5'10 guys need to put on 40+lbs of muscle to get to that size, which means heavy duty bodybuilding and even then they'd probably fail, like so many 'stocky' guys in rugby etc. You can only be so 'stocky'. Tyson's strength training was apparently pull-ups, dips, sit-ups, pulling a tire around. Give me a fckin break. And to have this size around twenty years too.

    I love it how these days many continue to PED despite more testing than ever and yet people think these old HWs in the least tested era were clean, even when their bodies defied physical reality. This was the era of huge roid use in sport all round.

    There's a reason you need to be a fat man to get to HW these days as a fighter under 6'. The heavy roids are harder to get away with.

    But Tyson is a hero for a lot of Americans, and apparently Luke Fury's idiot father. People actually think he spouts wisdom these days when he simply vomits nonsense. So there's a lot of investment in the creature and the 'brand'.

    Power yes, way more ? No...Haye had very good power, Holy was a strong puncher but not a way more powerful puncher than Usyk, athleticism, im not really sure, Haye was athletic but could be all over the shop with it balance wise, Holyfield and Usyk athleticism wise, its not worth talking about, speed ?? No one out the 3 jumps out as being faster than the other...So basically, your post is sheet lol

    Haymon isnt going to allow Wilder anywhere near Usyk. I am expecting Wilder's next two fights to be Fury and Kownacki.

    Tyson was built compact and muscular. A lot of muscle mass on that frame. Just how he was built.

    He's admitted to using PEDs in his later years but not in his early and best years.

    You seem to be the only one with sense here. 5'10 220lbs with abs showing is the same size as Mr Olympias from the Schearzenegger 1970s era and those guys were roided to the max.

    I've never seen a 5'10 Rugby player weighing 220lbs with abs, besides rugby players are also massive roiders and so are NFL players.

    Difference in power maybe, but no difference in General athleticism between Holy, Hay and Usyk. Usyk has better footwork thats for sure and a better gas tank, as well Ring Intelligence and punch variation.

    He used a prosthetic Pe Nis to pass drug tests, he has been doing this his whole career as was everyone else during his prime due to pathetic and non existent drug testing in the 80’s and 90’s.
