Mike Tyson, It's obvious that he was the best heavyweight boxer of the late 80's - early 90's.
No one could match his concusive power and fast hand speed, with both hands. He was probably the most feared man in the ring in boxing history.
The great thing about Mike Tyson is that he didn't come from a nice neighbourhood or rich family.
He was a nobody and made it to being world-wide famous-heavyweight champion of the world.
Now that's some feat for someone to accomplise.
Sure, he has been beat only a few times, but it's just bad luck on a bad day.
In a good mood, Tyson could beat anyone.
Including possibly Muhammad Ali, But that's one of those million dollar questions: "Who would win a fight between Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali" - I don't know for sure and neither do you.
Sure, he was an aggressive fighter with a bad attitude, but that's the way about it for powerfull boxers. Muscle over mind for those kind of champions.. Not the otherway about, as we seen from such champions as Muhammad Ali.
So, To round it off - Mike Tyson was a great heavyweight boxer, not saying he was the best, but you can deny that he was a great champ.
