How would Mike Tyson do against heavyweights of the 1950s/1970s? Tyson vs. Charles, Walcott, Archie Moore, and Rocky Marciano would have been great. However, the 1970s had Ali, Holmes, Quarry, Earnie Shavers, Lyle, Foreman, etc. I believe that Tyson would decimate the 1950s heavyweight division, but 1970s would test him more. Can you imagine a young Gerry Cooney vs. Mike Tyson? Tyson vs. Norton would be interesting too. I know that there are different schools of thought on Tyson. That is okay. I expect a divergence of opinions. I have my views, but I don't expect others to agree with me. I feel that the jab and grab tactics of LL and Holyfield would frustrate Tyson even in his prime, but the Louis, Liston, Holmes, Foreman, and Ali would have have the best chances IMO. Anyways, how would he do against those heavyweights?
