In a recent interview with TMZ, Mike Tyson opened up on Deontay Wilder’s recent statements about him. 

Apparently, Tyson respectfully disagrees with Wilder’s opinion that the latter would’ve beaten a prime “Iron” Mike.

Tyson is widely regarded as one of the greatest Heavyweight combat sportspersons of all time.

Tyson is always touted as one of the greatest talents to have ever graced a boxing ring, and was at his peak in the mid-to-late-1980s.

However, it was in the late ‘80s that Tyson’s partying ways eventually began diverting his focus from training to the usual trappings of the celebrity lifestyle.

Deontay Wilder recently told TMZ that he’d beat any fighter in history, including a prime 1986 version of Mike Tyson.

In response to the same, Mike Tyson simply asserted—“I don’t think so.”

Additionally, it’s intriguing to note that a man who faced Tyson when “Iron” Mike was past his prime—Lennox Lewis—picked Mike to defeat Wilder if the two were to face off in their respective primes.
