    Its clear when you see Tysons physical attributes hes got to be just about one of the greatest. His speed and power is what made him win fights rather than his knowledge and skills.

    I would say there are many better tecnicians than him.

    It is very hard to say who is the greatest, as in most sports that exist for so long.

    It is even harder because some of greatest boxers never turned pro because of political situation in their countries.

    Tyson would crush Ali if he tried rope n dope. Tyson was a machine.

    Top 20 heavyweight, good, sharp puncher. Early on showed good head movement, body work, and combinations. Pretty far down the list of great boxers.

    I have to go with Ali. That guy beat Frazier 2/3 times and destroyed Foreman. Not to mention he beat Sonny Liston twice. I think Tyson would have serious trouble fighting Ali let alone a guy like Foreman. Besides, if Tyson was the greatest boxer ever, he would have had to beat Evander and Lennox which he didn't.

    It would probably only have a small influence. Who in the last twenty years could/can hit harder than Liston, Foreman, or Shavers? Which heavyweights now are faster than Ali?
