    Jesus. What a difference. The second half he should of pulled his Zimmer frame up to the heavybag for support.

    The technique is still there. The hip rotation, the angle and even the timing of the combo just slower.

    H2H the best HW ever. Destroys everyone except maybe Ali and Vitaly, foreman would have been tough too.

    Slow or not you still would not want to be on the wrong end of a fist thrown from this guy.

    2nd part would look fast without the comparison! The before clip makes it difficult for me to think anyone today could last more than a couple of rounds against him.

    Age. It gets us all in the end. And there are those on here who argue age doesnt matter. Of course it matters.

    Needs to rematch Danny Williams and McBride imo. Another match to add to the Fury Snr vs Dana White Vegas card.

    He still has knowledge and skills. He would beat the snot out of the average guy. He could not however compete at any where near the top level of the professional game.

    I think Tyson was a very good fighter but there were fighterrs that went longer than two rounds against him at his peak that weren`t as good as the Top 5 today.

    They could have added it to the 55 year old Nigel Benn`s comeback card, lol.
