Tyson had one punch knock out power in both hands.
If he caught Ali with one of those shots the fight would be over fast.
I remember seeing a highlight of a fight when a old white guy caught Ali with a good left hook that put him down. The end of the round saved Ali from being knocked out.
He wasn't ready to come out for the next round so his manager Dundee cut his glove. They had to go back to the training room and get him another one.
The whole process took around 10 minutes. If this hadn't happened he would have been knocked out for sure in the next round. One minute wasn't enough time for him
recover and Dundee knew it.
Don't get me wrong here, I loved Ali and he is still my favorite boxer. I just can't know for sure what would happen between him and Tyson in their prime, no one can.
I would have loved to see it, but with the Tyson who was trained by Kevin Rooney and when JIm Jacobs and Cus were alive he was the most awesome fighter I had ever seen.
Boxers were afraid when they entered the ring. Once Don King got ahold of Tyson he went down hill fast!!
Again, Ali is my favorite but I would have been afraid for him in the fight!!
Great discussion! It's always fun to talk about what might have been.
