Lol Tyson would not put Frazier to sleep that early. If Frazier could survive the onslaught from Tyson in the beggining i see Frazier stopping Tyson late if not... well Tyson by early tko.

Frazier

Frazier beat a very fit, very tough and extremely clever Muhammad Ali. The only fighter who really hurt Joe Frazier was George Foreman. I do not see Tyson beating Frazier--and to they Tyson fans here, you are right, I may be wrong, for sure. But Frazier survived some of the toughest first six rounds in any heavyweight title fight ever, against Ali on March 8, 1971, and then Joe Frazier just kept coming on like Patton in France. I don't see Joe Frazier losing to the people that Tyson lost too, starting with Buster Douglas. Frazier knew how to throw to the body like no other heavyweight since Marciano. Again, I may be wrong, but I don't think Tyson would withstand Frazier's tenacity and his firepower. And remember, Frazier beat an extremely ready to fight and ready to win Muhammad Ali, and in no small part due to Frazier's great strategy for that fight, which Ali had not anticipated. So, high marks to Frazier there for ring generaliship, also. Great good luck to all,

cheers,

Frazier TKO 12. The first 3 rounds would be hard for Joe because he was a slow starter. Mike would more than likely drop Joe once or twice between the first bell, and the bell ending the 3rd. But as he did in the Foreman fights, Joe would get up smokin'. By the 7th Frazier would be whacking Tyson's body and breaking his guard open with uppercuts off of the hook. By the 10th Frazier has worn Tyson down and staggered Tyson with a good double hook combo. The fight is out of Tyson. Frazier finishes him off the next round, pounding him on the ropes and in a corner, the ref calls it off.

Tyson backed down when strong resistance occured. Frazier only came on harder.

This is a tough one. Bill has a plausible outcome, but I don't think he could stop Tyson. Tyson hit harder and it's possible he could destroy Joe early the way Foremen did, otherwise I think he'd get a decision.

I think Frazier would beat him... Tyson would start strong but he aint lke Goerge Foreman and he cant keep frazier in a distance like Foreman could(at the end of his wide-treacherous punches), and fighting at a close distance Frazier was much harder to fight and to hit.. And then I see Frazier wearing Tyson down to Ko him in the later rounds(if it was a 15 rounder), or winning a decision (12 rounder)

Tyson TKO

30 Seconds into round 1 (too ferocious and too fast, fantastic handspeed and amzing variety of punches poor joe would not know what hit him)

Anyone who thinks Tyson could win this fight doesn't understand that boxing is 90% psychology.

Furthermore, Tysoniestas in general are too enamored with the "young Tyson," who feasted on the coke-addled, degenerate remains of the "Lost Generation of Heavyweights." The guy was clearly a fearsome puncher, but never the invincible wrecking machine so many made him out to be, even in his prime.

Frazier is everything Mike Tyson was not. Everything. To even suggest Tyson would have a chance with Joe Frazier seriously misunderstands both Tyson's fragile psychology and how their respective styles would match-up in the ring. Frazier would destroy Tyson inside of three rounds. The first and maybe the second would be hard-swinging stuff, but Tyson would soon shrink from being in their with a man like "Smoking Joe," and once he started to crumble, Frazier would bulldoze him.

Frazier by TKO, I can't see Tyson KOing or even beat the same man that defeated a prime Ali. This would be a great fight regardless.

I think I'll go for Tyson here, Tyson is a beast in the first few rounds, with power shots landing all over the place, and Smokin' is a slow starter, so I think this would be over before many of you predicted

I see the fight in a very simular fashion, bill. The way that I see it happening though, is a 9th round KO. Mike Tyson would have had the fight knocked out of him much earlier, and he would have dropped his gaurd in exaughstion, and Frazier would have pounced.

Frazier KO9 Tyson

Sorry, but that was not a prime Ali. He was not even the best form of the Ali in the 70's. The true prime Ali was in the 1960s. Ali back then had not yet discovered the Rope a Dope style, and I think that the 60's Ali would have taken care of Frazier like he did Liston.

Prime vs Prime...I would say Tyson...I would think frazier's prime was the 1st Ali fight to which Ali had not fought in 3 yrs...had 2 quick tune up fights before the fight with Joe ... A not in his prime Ali lasted the whole fight with Joe and dished out a lot of punishment to Joe...Tyson in his prime with Cus Damoto in his corner....movement and lighting fast POWERFUL combo's...not the kind that take rounds to produce a knock out...the kind that put you down at that exact moment or soon there after....i think joe wouldnt have lasted to those later rounds when he would traditionally start to "Smoke".

Tyson KO 3. The fight would be as exciting as Hagler vs Hearns.

And for the record, prime vs prime and whatnot really don't matter here. Both these guys washed up quick. Faded vs Faded will produce the same result, in a longer fight. Frazier would honestly laugh if someone suggested he could beat Tyson. That's how much he thought of Tyson.
