ya, that's pretty much what I thought as well.  Jones was a great fighter in his day, probably one of the best i've ever watched, but tyson is just a fvcking beast, even now.

Tyson is in amazing shape for his age and still has moves.

I think of Jones as naturally more of a middleweight.  Has he ever seen someone with Tyson's power?

 

The flip side is has Tyson seen someone with Jones' speed and skill, but I think he has.  Jones is not that much of an outlier.  Jones is fast and smart, but he's not Muhammad Ali.  Tyson is probably second in the all-time list for power, behind only Sonny Liston, and it's close.

For all the brutality of Tyson in the ring the guy is an amazingly smart fighter as well. He knows the skills from the ground up an executed with such power and precision he will be a formidable opponent even for current youngsters in the sport

Early career Tyson was an abso-fecking-lute spectacle.  The only time I ever gave two shits about boxing.

Yep. I have only paid for one PPV event in my entire life, and it was The Ear Incident.

Bowe and Holyfield had some good fights. I remember about 5 of us chipping in for those.

My dad was a big boxing fan when I was growing up so I watched a hell of a lot of fights. In my younger eyes when Tyson hit the scene it was game over for a lot of fighters.
