    If Fury scares Widler into headphones now, then Wilder runs away and out of the ring crying against Tyson, if he even makes it to the apron at all.
    If DW is lucky, its a first round sickening KO win for Iron Mike.
    These two are levels upon levels apart.
    Tyson hits alot harder. Wilder was always a fraud.

    If Wilde fought Tyson, he'd be lucky if he lasted as long as Spinks did.

    Indeed...

    Huge power in your favourite power punch is only as good as your ability to land it.

    It's pointless having huge punching power if you lack the skills, chin or guts to use it to carry you to the top of the division.

    Plenty of fighters can bang hard but it's not enough on its own to get you there - Pricey hit bloody hard but lacked a chin...

    Wilder lacks skills and the balls to fight genuine contenders, so who gives a **** if he hits as hard as someone like Tyson who actually did have the skills and balls to take on the best of a better era to prove it?

    Wilder is a fraud, why care?

    Christ some people area daft.

    Tyson stopped world champions. Wilder stopped guys like Molina, Duhaupas, Szpilka...

    Tyson until proven otherwise.

    Quick answer,
    Both have exciting knock out reels. Both got some dubious stoppages which people like to pretend didn't happen. But one fighter stopped every opponent except one very large man who has yet to be defeated.

    Even quicker answer,
    look at the KO perecentages.

    While i agree that Wilder hits harder, that is not good logic. Mike Tyson would KO every single one of Wilders opponents except possibly Fury. Wilder's resume is garbage

    We will never be able to answer that question

    Edit: Actually, in the spirit of discussion, let me give you a better answer. Whilst I would agree the majority of Wilder's resume would be easy Ws for Tyson.
    There are too many times fights went the distance or required referee assistance to get the stoppage (on the come up and in his prime), that it's a reach for me to say he KOs all of Wilders opponents (minus Fury).

    Most of the UDs are guys who can box and move or nullify his offense. Nobody on Wilders resume besides Fury could do that, and Mike Tyson outworks them anyway. Guys like Tony Tucker might actually BEAT Wilder. Wilder is just extremely overrated tbh. I dont see what you see in him. He's a tall guy that punches incredibly hard but he's a one trick pony and has only 1 good win. Besides Ortiz the resume is just abysmal for a world champion
