Everyone who enjoys boxing has an opinion on the greatest boxer of all time. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to see each of the best boxers square off in their prime against one another? I am fully aware that what I am about to say will have boxing enthusiasts rolling their eyes. But in his prime, before the death of his father-figure trainer Cus D’Amato, Mike Tyson could have beaten anyone in their prime.
I think his tumultuous personal life and dramatic fall from grace after his conviction and subsequent three year prison stint sullied the memory of his real talent. We tend not to see him as the feared monster he really was. He was fast, and he would land punches with mayhem.
What say you?
