Period. He would absolutely crush Hopkins and Toney. No doubt about that in my mind.
I second that. Tyson >>> Toney, in every aspect. For starters, Toney is only 5'9" and started his career at 168lbs. and is a fat lightheavy. Tyson was knocking out the big boys (6'4" 250lbs) since he was 19. No contest. Mike would still get smashed into the cage and taken down for a beatdown in MMA, though. If he'd trained MMA since he was a youngster? Different story altogether.
