    If you could only see one of this fights which one do you pick? Assuming everyones in their prime yada yada. Personally I go for Ali vs Tyson as stylistically it intrigues me the most.

    Pac/Mayweather intrigues me more.

    I'm not really interested in Ali/Tyson to be honest. On the other hand, I'd love to see Tyson/Dempsey. That could easily be the best slugfest of all time.

    Tyson/Foreman

    Id also like to see Lennon Lewis against an older era guy.

    Pacquiao/Mayweather is irrelevant in terms of legacies, because neither will be remembered as the all time best in their division.

    Ali/Tyson is a possible candidate for that.

    Ali fought the best of the best in his era, and did more than amzingly well. Never KO'd, avenged his losses.

    Tyson is probably the most physically gifted HW of all time, and had he evolved more, he would have done much better in the latter part of his career.

    A prime meeting between those two would be terrific.

    Are you kidding right?

    Pacquiao and Floyd might not be remembered as the best in ONE division. But Pacman if he beats Mayweather, he might be one of the top 8 best fighter P4P of all times.

    Pacquiao is the best boxer since Roberto Duran, that's no joke.

    It's kind of hard for Pacquiao to be the best in his division, which ever that may be, if he constantly pushes his limits to the next weight class.

    Pac/PBF is more interesting because the outcome is more questionable.

    I'm pretty sure Ali prevails over Tyson, as he withstood Frazier and Foreman's punishment.

    Pac/Mayweather because they both fought in my generation. I want to have that Bert Sugar-esque insight 40 years from now when someone asks me about that fight and the two fighters.

    i would like to see both fights, but realistically Pacman/Mayweather can happen by next year. I honestly feel like Ali and Tyson would go like Ali-Liston I, or Ali-Foreman.

    Ali beat fighters similar to Tyson with more heart and more boxing prowess. I'd rather see the best two fighters of my generation fight.

    Gimme Ali vs Louis and I'd change my mind.

    If these are my options give me Pac vs Mayweather because it's the much more compelling and competitive fight. Nobody was able to KO Ali when he was at or near the top of his game (If i'm correct only Holmes was able to stop him for any reason) and Tyson's only shot would be to get a KO because he wasn't going to beat ALI for 12 or 15 rounds, that would be Ali's game and he would lose just about every time. Pacquiao vs Mayweather is a great contrast of styles between the offensive fire power of Pacquiao against the defensive skills and Boxing IQ of Floyd.

    Pacquiao fanboys are really the worst in boxing history.

    Ali vs Tyson, the two of the biggest names in boxing going at it.

    I'd love to see Pac/Mayweather, but the only reason why I want to see this fight is to see Manny put a beating on Mayweather, who is obviously ducking this fight.

    Mayweather-Pacquaio would be competitive - for a few rounds.

    Ali would slaughter Tyson.

    Ali Tyson easily, this will be mentioned for centuries, some guys today dont even know who mayweather is, but my aunt in kurdistan has even heard of Joe Frazier, let alone Ali and Tyson.
