    When asked who he would have wanted to fight most he said Floyd. Now a lot of Floyd fans think he was the best ever and say he would have beaten GGG who was several weight classes above him because he beat Canelo who went on to beat GGG. But could Floyd have made the jump to HW and still have found a way to win against one of the best HW's ever?

    Absolutely tyson would get destroyed by floyd.too technical, too slick, too rich, too literate, too fast, too well schooled, too iced out, too classy, too famous, too baller... no advantages to the podcaster and hangover actor IMO

    Floyd beating Tyson? maybe in a tag team handicap match with Manny as his partner. And Floyd and Manny gets to start off with baseball bats.

    Floy beats the shit out of him. Can't peek-a-boo a shoulder roll, and tyson doesn't have the movement anymore to dodge the counter right. Clear UD for Floy

    It MIGHT be possible that Floyd potshots him to a boring decision depending on Tyson's condition. Toney and Roy Jones both moved up from 160 to Heavyweight and beat the piss out of some good champions. Toney knocked out one of the Klitschko brothers when he was at super middleweight or lightheavy (168-175) during a sparring session and they were both in their primes. Dempsey beat up a fighter 60 lbs and half a foot taller to win the heavyweight championship. Its possible for more skilled and faster fighters to beat much bigger guys. Floyd definitely is the more skilled fighter, and he's a lot younger than Tyson. He probably doesn't have the chin and defensive skills of Toney in the pocket to survive, but its not impossible.

    One punch could change the game, huge weight difference, dramatic prime difference, I’d sit this one out.

    Very true. He is like a yogi master, the way he controls his breathing and cardio. Probably uses mental tactics to turn Tyson into a front runner, and lets him gas out. You right, prob around round 8
