pretty much - keep it at your range, don't loop your shots and as soon as tyson gets close tie him up and give yourself plenty of room on the break

if you get knocked down take your time and be prepared for the follow up rush

the ring is your friend - exchanging with tyson is not, he'll get off more and more powerful punches and you'll just be pestering the top of his head at that point ........ stay disciplined, keep range and frustrate him to a boring victory

Default Tyson easy

The only Tyson I recognize is the one who fought while Cus D'Amato was alive. That version was an exceptional fighter, and one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. This version of Tyson electrified the sport, reminding those of the greatest that is the "Sweet Science." Klitschko would be no match for this version of Mike Tyson.

Klitschko is not a great fighter. He's big, mechanical, and unimaginative in his fighting style. He benefits from a period where the opposition is largely smaller, untalented, and unathletic. He has been knocked out by much inferior fighters than a prime Mike Tyson. Against Tyson, he would last only as long as his greater size enabled him to maintain a defense effective enough to momentarily keep Mike at bay.

I wouldn't know what to tell Klitschko if I was in his corner. I've never advised a fighter in his corner.

This right here. Also, use the jab but don't jab in a predictable rhythm or leave it out too long, use angles and time your uppercuts to catch him coming inside.

Nobody really knows about the guys Tyson beat, he destroyed most of them. Guys like Biggs, Spinks, Tubbs, may have been considered good heavyweights, if it wasn't for Tyson.

Since Tyson, not one heavyweight has had his power (accuracy) more like it and speed. Donovan "Razor" Ruddock, who was a good boxer and Tyson's toughest opponent till that point, said the same thing Holmes said, " its not so much his power, but where he hits you and how many times he can do it in a short period of time". Btw, Ruddock ruptured Tyson's ear drum and Tyson said Ruddock hit him harder than anybody.

Another point, the younger brother fights scared. Tyson was like animal, if he detected fear he would smash the person. Also, Tyson would beat him in the pre-fight mantra. This fight could feasibly last as long as the Spinks fight. He would get blasted.
