    ALI Ali would DESTROY Tyson....... Ali could box, Tyson was just a slugger and a boxer will beat a slugger every time.

    Tyson might win the first time, and Ali would train like Rocky and win the second time?

    Tough call!

    Edit! If Tyson did win, it wouldn't be in the first round like he often did in his prime. My fear is Ali depended on the other guy actually having a brain to knock the guy out. It would be a brutal fight.

    Tyson would definitely win. I know he's way past his prime but he's 40 and Ali is almost 65.

    LOL! Yes, and Ali has Parkinsons, or whatever to boot. But I really believe that Ali in his prime was the best boxer ever, in any division. And I can remember watching Sugar Ray Robinson, Marciano, Joe Louis etc. Ali was simply better than anyone, ever. Fast and fluid and powerful and everything one wants in a boxer.

    The list of boxers who, in their prime, would beat Tyson in his prime is too long to post and certainly includes Ali.

    I don't think any of the two actually know how to play chess, let alone win a game...

    I wouldn't bet that Ali didn't know how to play chess, or rather doesn't.

    Ray used to beat him like a drum when he was alive. (At chess that is.)

    Here is a game that Ray played against Larry Evans:

    Ali vs Tyson Kinda like Ali vs Forman Ali would win that because Tyson could not box. Tyson would just knock fools out!!!! Because they would get caught sleeping.

    Super Off Topic Post!

    Stevie wonder was talking with Tiger Woods telling Tiger how much he enjoyed the game of Golf. Stevie told Tiger he would love to play him some day, and Tiger kind of chuckled. Stevie went so far as to say he would give Tiger 1 stroke per side.

    Tiger said, "You name the day and time, I'll play".

    Stevie said, "How about tonight, around midnight"?

    Ali would have knocked 8 kinds of bejeebers out of Tyson.
    Ali was the complete fighting machine. Tyson had heart and savagery.
    My kingdom for a time machine. Would have been the only worthy adversaries for each others full skill complement.

    Wow what a co-incidence I watched a documentry yesterday about the Ali/Foreman fight (or maybe you watched it too) which made me think about this mythical fight between them when both in their prime. I think Ali demonstrated in that fight that he can come up with the goods when he looks outmatched and I don't think Tyson could live with him. I forget the first guy that beat Tyson but I seem to remember that he figured out that to beat Tyson you had to take the fight to him rather than getting on your back foot and letting the inevitable happen. There has been no one better than Ali than figuring out the tactics so he would easily get on top.
