    Tyson`s head movement wasn`t that good after Rooney left his camp.

    Tyson pre jail was a bad man and he was still a monster vs Ruddock

    I think he would smash Wilder to pieces

    To be honest, the Tyson that lost to Evander would still beat Deontay imo

    What do you say to this rubbish? Tyson had a granite chin, Wilder hasn't KOed anyone remotely on Tyson's level. In his last fight Wilder didn't even look like he knew how to box. He landed a shot high on Ortiz' head and Ortiz was out of there? Suspect or Ortiz has a glass cheekbone

    Seriously, Wilder is completely untested. In the world where boxing meets WWE, anything is possible. In the real world Tyson eats him alive.

    Tyson was dreadful v Ruddock, no head movement or anything.

    Tyson was knocked out by Douglas and Lewis, he was stopped by Holy and when he was completely finished stopped by McBride and Williams no way is he taking Wilder`s power.

    But he was an animal

    I think he chose to bomb forward and slug it out

    Don't forget he also showed a great chin

    I actually might be in the minority, as I think today's heavyweights are not very good

    Lewis/Holyfield/Tyson/ Bowe and even Mercer likely beat all these guys imo

    Bowe and Mercer were too easy to hit.

    I think Mike Tyson wins, probably ko in the 5th round. I do find it strange how ppl think Tyson would easily ko the top heavyweights of today. The whole heavyweight division has changed and the fighters are much bigger and stronger athletes now. Mike Tyson was 15 stone and 5ft 11. The guys nowadays are 6ft 7 and 18st. It's hard to really say conclusively who would win. There's a reason why we don't have heavyweight champions under 6ft these days. Because they are simply too small to compete.

    Ok prime for prime Tyson crushes Wilder.
    People tend to forget that in addition to Tyson's power it was his SPEED that opponents had to contend with.
    And a Mercer at his best stops Wilder. Mercer had an IRON chin and was very strong. Also Mercer had an underrated jab which Wilder in my opinion could not deal with.
    Wilder just isnt skilled. Ortiz is supposedly his best opponent and people overlook that Ortiz is what 40 something years of age? And the first time he took Wilder to the brink.

    I could see Wilder throwing those wide punches and Tyson weaving under it and just cracking him.
    Or Tyson gets on the inside quickly- which he was known to do- and Wilder ending up like Marvis Frazier.
