Anderson Silva vs Mike Tyson

Had a discussion with some of my buddies who are biased towards boxers while I'm biased toward's MMA fighters.

If this is off topic then sorry

Just curious.

Post your reasoning behind what you choose too

Note - This is a stand-up only. Obviously Tyson would out box him in a boxing ring but think of it this way- street fight Silva vs Tyson who wins and why

Stand up only, Anderson wins.
Boxing, Mike wins.

I think Anderson would hurt Mike in a standup only fight in the octagon with 4oz gloves but would have some difficulties in a ring with 8-10oz gloves.

Obviously Anderson murders Mike with the Thai clinch. It's also really hard to generate power when your opponent throws well timed leg and body teeps.

Yes, everything that is standup goes. Kicks knees clinch ect.

Just not a 'boxing' only match. Pretty much a street fight but with no ground.

Isn't there a difference between being tough to take a punch (or kick) and then just simply getting knocked out? Like there's a point of how much the head can take before being knocked out.. not sure if it has to do with pain tolerence toughness or chin.

I would say for instance, Hendo has probably the highest rated chin in MMA but he might not have the same pain tolerance as other fighters who don't have the chin level of Hendo.

I think this would happen. Tyson was way bigger and stronger and had an excellent chin. Tyson by left hook KO.

I'd like to say Silva takes it easily... But Tyson is just enormous... In a kickboxing match, I think Silva has the edge, but if it was a straight boxing match, Tyson likely has it.

How far can an excellent chin take you when you're constantly being hit? Without the padding boxing gloves have as well, like a solid shin shot to the head.
