    I gotta go with Ali. I believe his brain would overpower Tyson's brawn. He proved it with Forman.

    He had an intimidation factor I've never seen before in boxing. His opponents were often defeated before a punch was thrown.

    For good reason too.

    Yes, definitely.
    There were fights where huge monsters of a man could not even look in Tyson's eyes during the ref's instructions, and their fear was clearly visible.

    I don't think that Ali or Louis would have shown any fear
    Ali would have rope-a-doped Tyson and Louis would have cut him to pieces

    I think you're wrong. While Tyson had a tremendous knockout arsenal, he was a very good boxer. He was excellently trained.

    My criteria is....my opinion. I'm not a professional sports analyst.

    If you don't want to give your opinion on the subject, then remove yourself from this thread.

    Don't ruin another thread with your FMF like antics.
