I don't see how a man could be past his prime and come out from a heart condition to beat Mercer, Tyson, Moore and fight to a draw with Lewis. He was even beating Bowe on the score cards before he got KO but him making a quick return from his heart condition recovery to fight Mercer and Bowe would obviously bring such risks.
Plus he did not look that different against Tyson as when he fought George Foreman.
Just my opinion though.
