If he is, who has he beat worth mentioning? What accolades does he have that separates him from other greats.

    All time great? No sure. Top 10, yes. He was a beast no doubt. He didn't fight anybody though. He's a pit and he was fighting weiner dogs.

    ...the fuck are you talking about? If you think he's not an all-time great, how the fuck can you say he's top 10. There's not just ONE all-time great. There's a plethora of them (Hagler, Hearns, Duran, Mayweather, Ali, Robinson, Jack Johnson, etc).

    You say the dumbest fucking things b? Dude, what the fuck?!?!?

    Well, there arent alot of great boxers period. He is 50-6-2. With 44 knockouts, which is impressive. But he Won WBC Heavyweight Title against Trevor Berbick. Come on son

    Why you mad? It's a debate. Instead of catching feelings, tell me why he is an all time great.

    ...and you still don't get it. I'm not debating whether he's an all-time great or not. I'm discussing your backwards logic.

    smh

    He ducked Holyfield back when he fought Buster Douglas. Holyfield was the number 1 contender that time and Tyson knew he couldnt beat Holyfield

    how is somebody a top 10 all time but not an all time great....

    I already said. You have to be top 3 to be an all time great imo. Tyson isn't top 3.

    I understand it's your opinion, BUT boxing has been around far too long and had far too many great boxers to limit all time greats to three. It's pretty asinine to think you can honestly.

    Smh@this bum shit. The dudes he fought were top fighters at the time. He suffers from the Roy Jones complex in that he made his competition look weak as fuck.

    You can't be a top 10 WORLD ranked boxer and be ass. People make it sound like he was at the Golden Gloves beating up kids.

    if Floyd ain't Top 10, neither is Mike.

    Mike killed boxing during the 1980s, but his post-jail shit costed him the Top 10 status.

    He's Top 15, tho.
