    The 2 most overrated and over hyped athletes ever. Looked great as bullies but once they got pushed they were finished mentally.

    both were maybe overrated but in different ways, ronda was a scrub rated as a god, mike was a beast rated as a god

    All I am saying is they beat up on weak divisions and once the comp was legit they folded.

    Iron Mike lost everything that made him great not long after Cus died. Couldve went down as boxing GOAT had he stuck with Rooney, had self discipline. The twenty year old Tyson could beat anybody, period.

    If only Mike had Edmond in his Corner.
    He'd be the GOAT

    No way.

    Tyson was 100% legit and bad as hell while Cus D'Amato and even Kevin Rooney were still around.

    But when things went bad for him, he lost it all fast.
     
  9. Pencil necked journalists who never competed in shit tried to sell that idea that to beat Tyson all you had to do was "stand up to him". You're buying into total nonsense. It's a fucking lie.

    They should never be mentioned in the same sentence and that's the truth.

    Ronda got stopped by Holly and Nunes....

    Tyson got stopped by Evander fucking Holyfield. Major difference

    Oh and Tyson could actually box unlike Ronda

    tyson had talent and fell apart due to drug addiction and horrible management.

    rousey never had talent and beat up accountants and soccer moms.

    Tyson had the legit skills to be one of the greatest ever. Ronda has a limited skill set that got figured out.

    Don King the dirty leech got in Tyson's head and stole him from Rooney. That was the end for Tyson. I wish we could've seen what would've happened if he stayed with Rooney and if Cus or someone else could have been there to help Tyson mentally and emotionally.

    And anyone comparing Tyson to Ronda is a fucking retard.

    Berbick was awful......Tyson stayed away from Witherspoon who would have smoked him at that time.

    Yep. 100% agree with all you said.

    Tyson >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Ronda

    Tyson was the real deal until King got him. Very sad.
