Ha...

Tyson was a guy who, if he landed one big punch, can knock you out. Does Buster Douglas ring a bell? If a fighter could get Tyson past the 4th round then Tyson wasn't as dominant. This is what Ali thrived on. A young Ali would dance around Tyson and jab him to death. You forget that Tyson and Frazier have such similar styles it's pretty scary (except Frazier could go the distance...). Ali, after not being able to box for 2 years during his prime, came back and took Fraziers best punch (monster left hook) right in the jaw and got up within 2 seconds. IF, that's a big IF, Tyson ever lands his best punch on Ali, Ali would get up and dance for 6 rounds until Tyson got tired and knock him the **** out.

george foreman had comparable power to tyson, and was almost as dominant in his prime (tyson NEVER beat somebody like frazier, foreman did so CONVINCINGLY), and we saw what ali did to him.

sorry, but nobody licks ali in his prime. that includes tyson at his best.

1. In the third I had anopportunity and I got really tight, and I pretty much gave it to her. It was like, Here, you know, do you want togo to the semis? Because I don't. She was like, Okay. (laughter.)

2. After the first set, I felt really dizzy, and I thought that I was just gonna end up in the hospital. I started to shake. I was losing my ‑ how you say ‑ consciousness. I don't know. It's as well some woman problems, as well. It's not easy being a woman, you know, sometimes. All these things happen. What can I do? I tried my best.

3. Medical timeout is there because physiotherapist are there and doctors are there to help you out. This is what I did. I just took the medicals to help me out.

Maybe the people think that I'm exaggerating with these things, but it's just ‑‑ it's nothing bad, nothing negative, because I just ‑‑ I twist my ankle, I feel bad, you know. I get the pain in the back.
