    Is there a question that Mike was the best fighter ever? At least until Don King took over anyhow.

    Right walley, I also remember the great Ali, and obviously he was amazing, but Mike was better.

    I remember the parties we would have for a Tyson fight, great build up to a 30 second finish. Still they were great.

    True, but that is a whole different game. Now in MMA I am liking (or did like) Kazushi Sakuraba.

    It makes me sad to think how great boxing was, and what it has become. Who remembers Jorge Paez?

    I hear you, but I never saw Rocky fight, and from what I did see, I still say Mike was the best. Oh how sad and amazed I was when he fell to Douglas.

    Tyson was a pure caged animal. If Cus D'Amato lived longer, Tyson might have never been defeated.

    Ali was better.

    Joe Louis could have given him a run for his money.

    Tyson was dominant as fuck when he was young, but he fought a lot of bums, and ended up losing some big time fights he should have won. A Buster Douglas equivalent would have never beat Ali.
