I'm a Tyson fan so yes I'm biased but I do give Evander credit. He was one of the best but as good as Tyson? I don't think so. I'm going to talk about Tyson vs Holfield because that's pretty much both of their most famous fights. Evander was better at the time than Tyson being more fit and experienced since Tyson went to jail. When Tyson first went to jail he declined a little bit not as good as he still had something but after he went to jail for the sexual assault of Desiree Washington Tyson wasn't the same and he looked terrible. To be honest Evander was still having a lot of trouble with a done and over Tyson. Evander did well no doubt in the first 5 Rounds but then Tyson started coming back and tiring Evander with body shots then the head butt happened only hurting Tyson. Then it happened again causing Tysons eye to bleed then Evander just took advantage of Tyson being injured. Evander I think got lucky because of the head butt. So was the head butt on purpose or accident? Well ...more
George Foreman is underrated. He beat Joe Frazier twice, (Both times by knockout before round six) And he also beat Ken Norton in round two. And he won the world title at age 45.
I like Foreman but he relied completely on his strength and nothing else so it was extremely easy to see his punches coming.
Leon Spinks is probably the most overrated fighter of all time. He just fought bums, and had a poor record
Good boxer, but definitely one of the most over-rated Heavyweight Champs in history. Waited too long to start his pro career. Never fought any of the great fighters of his era in their primes. All his big wins came against fighters who were well past their primes (eg. Holyfield, Tyson, Tucker etc.)
