Mike Tyson disagrees with Anthony Joshua’s prediction that he would beat Muhammad Ali in a fantasy fight

Mike Tyson has insisted that he would have lost a fantasy fight against Muhammad Ali if they’d both met in their primes.
During the period at the start of last year when all sport was put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic, boxing’s age-old debate resurfaced on a couple of occasions.

First, current heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua said on a JD Sports Instagram Live: “It’s quite interesting because in the era of Muhammad Ali’s heavyweight reign, the heavyweights were ranked as the cruiserweights of the Mike Tyson era.
“With Lennox Lewis, you know how they started getting bigger, hence why in the amateurs they then created a super-heavyweight division.
“The current heavyweight division in the amateurs is what we class as the cruiserweight division.
“So Muhammad Ali wouldn’t have been a fully fledged heavyweight.

“So let’s say we bulked Muhammad Ali up and put size and strength to him, I truly believe Mike Tyson would’ve won.
“The reason being when you watch the fight with Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, you see a certain Tyson-esque to Frazier’s style.
“Tyson used to study that Joe Frazier. The moving, the hooks. He managed to put Ali down in the fight, it was a very tough fight for Ali.
“And I just believe Mike Tyson was better schooled, times have evolved, Mike Tyson was more developed. More science, more information.
“So I think that Mike Tyson would’ve won, in my humble opinion.”
Muhammad Ali was known as the ‘Greatest of All Times’
After AJ’s comments, the World Boxing Super Series simulated Tyson vs Ali on Fight Night Champion, with ‘Iron Mike’ coming out on top.
When he was told about this, Tyson dismissed the idea to Yahoo Sports and said: “I know it’s a fantasy game.
“Most likely I would win the fantasy, I wouldn’t win the real fight.
“Ali’s the greatest there’s ever been.”
