One for the ages it would be in terms of action. I think Bowe is competitive early and makes it a helluva fight but Tyson's hand speed and Bowe's refusal to clinch inside would get him stopped in 8 rounds.

Holyfield beats Tyson, Bowe beats Holyfield, but TYSON DESTROYS BOW in 5.

Bowe was TOUGH but probably not as tough as Holyfield..and he liked to stay inside too much...I think Tyson rips him with hooks and uppercuts and stops him in 5 or 6 rounds. If Bowe boxed more than he banged..and tied Tyson up..he could win a decision.

The Bowe that fought Holyfield the first time I think would have knocked Mike out, softening him up with thudding uppercuts and stopping him around round 8. Really it wouldn't have been that much different from Foreman-Frazier.

But Bowe from any other fight in his prime (Coetzer, Ferguson, Holyfield 2, etc) would have taken a ton of hard shots, probably become intimidated by Mike's hand speed and have the fight beat out of him early en route to a wide Tyson UD.

Mike couldn't put away big guys like Tucker and Bonecrusher. Bowe was better than them, and he had a lot of heart.

Holy also beat Bowe once..He also put Bowe down..The one and only guy to ever put him down..Bowe would definitely need his jab for Tyson..I'm not sure who'd win but these 2 would of made a trilogy outta it..

Yeh, agreed on that part Jonny.

Not to mention, Holy had Bowe where he wanted him in fight three, but was not on his game and didn't close the show.

Fight one, OH MAN, one of the greatets in history!

This is prime Tyson V. prime Bowe right?

Well Holyfield was able to catch prime Bowe with plenty during their first fight and although I have no doubt that Holy can punch at HW Mike could REALLY punch at HW.

I think prime Tyson had the quickest handspeed of any HW I've ever seen. Apparently Angelo Dundee says the same thing.

Agreed with what's been said before prime Bowe was a very brave HW and standing and trading with Mike would've meant nap nap time. A helluva fight though.

Oh yeah..I always forget about the Bowe/Golota fights for some reason..Golota put him down 2 times I think in their second fight..

That's definitely something for all us to really think about..Any other opinions on who has the fastest hands ever at heavyweight??
