I don't know, but Tyson's style is impregenable.

Would have been a helluva fight. Both had similar styles and they were about the same size. I think Frazier was a better boxer and he had one of the best left hooks in boxing history. Plus he was one tough SOB. There was no quit in Smokin Joe.

It could have gone either way since both were devastating punchers. I'd go with Frazier in a close fight.

Tyson would KO Frazier early just like Foreman did.

George Foreman was 6'4-230 in his prime, with an 82" reach. Much bigger than Frazier.

Mike Tyson was 5'10-215 in his prime, with a 71" inch reach. Slightly smaller than Frazier

I wouldn't bet against Tyson in his prime against anyone.

The craziness factor.

Tyson couldn't even beat Holyfield. Frazier for the win.

If Frazier survies the first 3 rounds he wins the fight.

Tyson. And easily.

I disagree.

Tyson was faster, stronger, and meaner. Ali was smarter. . .but so was everyone Tyson fought.

And Ali was the exact type of boxer that Tyson destroyed. Once Kid Dynamite got inside his reach, Ali would be done. I would say 3rd round KO for Tyson.

I think Tyson knocks out Ali by the third round. Alot of people hate on Tyson for what he has become, but he may have been the greatest pure fighter boxing has ever known.

Tyson was smaller than everyone he fought.

It always worked to his advantage. He gets inside your reach and destroys you, while you can't make good contact.

The two are very similar, but I go with Tyson in this fight.

He's just too powerful to sit and trade punches with.

I wouldn't bring Holyfield into this as far as making comparisons. Holyfield was practically tailor made to beat Tyson. Solid chin, good fundamentals, incredible stamina and recovery... and not afraid of Tyson.

While Frazier has many of those qualities, too, I just don't think he can withstand Tyson's early bombing. Frazier would stand in front of him, take it and pay for it.

I completely agree with this. Tyson was amazing when he was training and not just cashing a check. It's a shame he got burned out and surrounded himself with shitty people.

Could not have beaten Tyson pre-Prison.

Tyson after prison<<<<<<<<<<<<Tyson before prison.

In his prime, only Tyson could beat Tyson. . .as evidenced by the Buster Douglas fight.

When Tyson was at his peak he intimidated all his opponents. He would NOT have done this to Frazier.
