If Tyson didnt go to prison his career could have been much different. Tysons next opponent befor he was locked up was Holyfield. That Tyson vs Holyfield I believe would have koed Holyfield within 6 round. Tyson would have won the title back and retired as Champ of the world. He would have never fought this late into his career. Fights against people like Lewis and Joe Hipp would not have been. This is only my oppinion. What do you think "Would had been?"

I was saying something about this in a thread a while back because after I watched Holyfields career collection I noticed how long he had been obsessed with getting a chance to fight Tyson. I came to the same conclusion you did. If Tyson's personal life hadn't gotten him off his game, and Holyfield didn't have those years to grow as a fighter out of the wars he was in, things probably would have gone a lot differently.

And by "differently" I mean Tyson would have whopped his ass :cheeky4:

I dont know about undisputed, people will ALWAYS argue that the guy of their era was better. Tyson was definitely a waste of something special though.
Most def a waste. If Mike did not go to jail he still would have been surrounded by people that helped him ruin his life.He still would have made bad decisions.If he had some good guidence, along with his age he could have been champ for a long time.

Yeah, well, if a frog had wings? It wouldn't bump its butt!

What might could have happened doesn't mean any thing.

One of the saddest things in life is wasted talent.

Now look at his life. Hes about to do a few more years in jail. He could have been the all time greatest HW but the down fall started when he lost to Douglas.

He could only have been regarded as the GOAT if he beat Lewis, Holyfield, and retired undefeated. There just weren't enough huge names for him to fight in his time before his demise.

You shouldn't. We just assumed that these threads were dead. But, I understand in a time with no freakin' boxing we have nothing new to talk about.
