Tyson maybe? Too hard to decide, I think.

I personally think Mike is the best boxer of all time but Ali is the goat in reality. Anyone doesn't believe Ali is the goat, show em this

Sugar Ray Robinson is the GOAT. Even Ali admits it.

Ok, I know that, read my quote one more time. Sugar ray is best pound for pound, and I totally forgot we were talking about a certain point (their prime).

Ali>Tyson though still.

They both struggled with some heavyweights that were reminiscent of each other.

But Ali never fought anyone quite like Tyson. Frazier was similar, but one-armed, slow, smaller, softer, and infinitely less skilled. But Ali was also shot by this point, I don't think Frazier could win more then 2-3 rounds off Cassius Clay.

I don't think it likely either stops each other, I think it'd be different each time they fight, one guy stealing rounds here and there with the natural flow. But i favor Tyson to get a little more work done.

Tough one. But seeing Tyson destroy the competition before fame and Don King ruined him, I would say Iron Mike.

Roy Jones Jr. is the best pound for pound boxer.

Sugay Ray Robinson and Henry Armstrong > Roy Jones and Muhammad Ali.

I would say that Muhammad Ali beat Prime Tyson because he's taller, faster, and a 21 yrs.old Ali TKO Sonny Liston.

Jones competition was pretty suspect. For whatever reason, he never fought Darius M. In his prime, I think he could have an easy fight with most of the great fighters... but he doesn't rank all that high.

Plus, he had an embarrassing last half-decade.
