Heavyweight. 2003. Tyson that ko'd a worthless Ettiene versus a Roy Jones who outclassed John Ruiz.

BTW Roy Jones would most likely weight in at 193 (like he did against Ruiz) and Mike would weight in at 225lbs.

Tyson. Jones Jr at heavyweight is over hyped. He beat one of the top 10 worst champions of all time, nad the #1 clincher of all time. Big deal. Tyson would KO Roy. Even though Tyson was shot, Jones Jr didn't have the chin to take Mike's still great power.

It depends when the fight takes place. '88-98, Tyson may have very well killed Jones. After that, Jones would have been a bit more successful executing his Ruiz gameplan, but all it would have taken was one shot to change everything. Prime Iron Mike wins by brutal KO that makes what Glen Johnson did to him look like a kick in the shin from a little girl (no disrespect at all meant toward Johnson). Tired Mike without his heart in it probably gets outpointed easily, but the threat is always there.

Oh I agree. I figured we were talking primes.

Jack Johnson was the best clincher ever lived.

I think Tyson would get a flash KO, unless if Jones was able to keep up with Tyson's work rate.
