nope, but nice try wrote:
I mostly agree with this. Tyson knocked out a lot of nobodies. But I also think Tysons biggest downfall was himself. When Cus died so too did Tyson in a way. But the combination of his power, speed and accuracy was unmatched when he was in top form. Dude was coked out and not training seriously when he fought Buster Douglas. I always just think what might have been had Cus lived longer.
Moreso if he had not fired Rooney.
He was skilled when he wanted to be. He won. Got lazy. Didn't want to defend anymore. Just kept relying on the one punch bomb.
The guys he beat to win the belts weren't bums. They were the best they had at the time. A 1989 Tyson kills Holyfield in the first round just like he destroyed another undersized undefeated heavyweight.
Wrong. Holyfield was a different breed to Michael Spinks. He was also bigger than Spinks (due to a lot of steroids and hgh).
BTW, the trainer of Michael Spinks boasted that Spinks could run 800m in 2:40. Holyfield ran it in 2:20 on live TV when he was bulking up to be a heavyweight.
Spinks literally cr a p#ed his pants in the dressing room before facing Tyson. Holyfield had a chunk of his ear bitten out TWICE by Tyson and he was still ready to go toe to toe with him.
Do you see a difference between the two?
