Default OT: Who'd win, Prime Ali or Prime Tyson?

Just wondering your feelings on the greatest heavywieght question of all time. If a prime Muhammed Ali faced a prime Mike Tyson, who'd win?

Tyson has more power but that's about it. Ali would eat him alive. Tyson doesn't have the stamina to fight Ali for 12 rounds and Ali is too difficult to knock out.

Tyson the generation gap is too wide, (40 years) modern medicines, training technique, and other enhancement would put Tyson over the top. Remember prime Mike just need one good shot.

40 Years, more like 10 maybe.

Ali stopped fighting around 76-77, I believe and Mike started in 85.

Prime years was more like 20 years apart. Ali was not a power fighter. He wore out his opponents through superior agility and finesse.

Tyson was a machine in his prime. I think if he landed a serious blow early, he could take out Ali. So I guess we would never know, but most people would pick Ali because of the respect factor alone.

Ali is the greatest ever, forget Robinson. And if Tyson didn't actually knock him clean out, not just down by round 4. It would be Tyson's ass

He fought Lewis and Hollyfield, but still doesn't compare to Foreman, Frazier. Especially since he LOST.

Ali is too smart. Tyson would be throwing KO punches for the first few rounds and Ali would be dancing or defending.

Yet it was 37 fights into his career before anyone exposed Tyson. Ali was exposed as vulnerable before his 20th fight, so vulnerable that Liston jumped on the opportunity to beat up his loud mouth.

Ali's size would also factor in.
