damn, sucks that I wasn't old enough to appreciate Tyson back when he was the MAN. At least we got youtube and that new documentary was pretty badass. Crazy guy, and I knew all along who would win and how, just wanted to see it on paper.

Yeah... Tyson in his prime in a boxing ring would trash anyone you put in there with him... Maybe with a time machine you could drop in a prime Patterson, Ali, or Marciano and they MAY have a slim chance of taking kid dynamite down.. MAYBE.

Forget prime, Tyson by KO within the first minute if they boxed today. Any heavyweight boxer ranked in the top 50 by KO within the first round. Two different sports.

Ali is the only guy that would stand a chance to beat Prime Tyson.

Congratulations you won!

I agree with everyone else here. Tyson would take it in a boxing match. They are just different sports. You have to remember that striking in MMA is much different than boxing. In boxing, neither fighter has to worry about being taken down, there are no kicks whatsoever, they would be in a ring which would make the navigation different, defense is different due to the size difference between the gloves, and the clinch is entirely different.

Carwin would have to account for all of these things and completely adapt whereas Tyson would already be accustomed to this style of fighting.

tyson would KO carwin within ten, even if he did try to take him down. [IMG][/IMG]

if carwin can hit brock coming in than a tyson would send carwins head into orbit.

lol at Patterson. That one was out from left field.

Joe Louis, Lennox Lewis, and George Foreman. I'd all favour over Tyson.

Ali and prime Holmes would make for interesting bouts.

As for this topic, utterly ridiculous. Carwin doesn't see 2nd round.

Likewise for Tyson in an MMA fight.
