name, 1 per round.
top 3 fighters tyson didn't fight, they you'd like to have seen him fought. Be kinda realistic here, time frames matchup for the most part.
my #1 pick.. (not in order__
David Tua vs Mike Tyson..
Both are built the same, my opinion. Both fightes can "club" you, and Tua, he was around Tyson's time frame, for some reason they never crossed paths. Both fighters are very similar and would make for a very entertaining fight.
They've fought a lot of the same guys as well.
Power to the People! not in

Styles make fights. It might be a cliche, but it's true in boxing.
At 6 feet 6 inches and about 240 pounds, Klitschko would have been presented quite an obstacle for Tyson to overcome. And Tyson had a lot of trouble with Lennox Lewis (another big fighter) when they fought. Lewis dominated the fight before KO'ing Tyson in the 8th round.
Klitschko is more than just a slugger/brawler type and those are the taller guys Tyson ate up during his career. Guys that would just stand and trade with him.
Klitschko would use his height (8 inches) and reach (10 inches) to his advantage and pick him apart with his jab and superior boxing skills. Wladimir can bang in the ring, but I think he would jab Tyson to death and trade with him at times, but not enough to where he would get in serious trouble.
I think this Klitschko vs Tyson would have been very entertaining.

ring a bell, watson????
Man, did you know that Tyson fought for the "right" to fight Vitali, and LOST!
Remember journey man, Danny Williams?
my 2nd pick.. Riddick Bowe...
Bowe was one of the best in the 90's, his trilogy with Holyfield is infamous.
Bowe and Tyson, like Tua, fought a lot of the same fighters.
Bowe and Tyson not fighting, kinda lame, for the 90's at least.

We're talking about Fantasy matchups, PCH and it isn't like I picked a fighter from the 1970's or 1980's that wasn't an active boxer.
Klitschko started fighting in 1996. Tyson was still fighting.
My 2nd fighter is George Foreman.
Foreman was a big guy also, like Klitschko. Foreman was the unmoveable object. At 6 feet 4 inches tall he would have had a major height advantage over Tyson and an 11 inch reach advantage. He was KO'd just once in his career and that was against Muhammad Ali.
Foreman vs Tyson would have been a huge PPV draw. This would have been a great fight and one that boxing fans would definitely want to see.

eh, if Tyson started up in the 70's, yeah, then my pick would be Foreman too! hahahahahah
I'm good on Foreman and Tyson, i won't lie, i woulda watched it, and it enjoyed it all the same, but really? hahaha
So we have Vitali and Foreman vs Bowe n Tua?
jesus... smh.. that "smh", stands for shake my head, for you old farts out there..
My last and FINAL pick...
I'm going with Michael Moorer..
Moorer got clocked by your boi, Foreman! Keep in mind, Foreman was losing that fight up to the knockout..
Moorer, Tyson would've ate him up, or so i think.
good td, NOT! lmao

Fights are all about matchups, boi!!!
Moorer beat Foreman? Check again!!!
Nasty left and right combo to drop Moorer in the 10th round.
Foreman in the 1970's? Come on, PCH. You just admit you'd watch. Why? Because Foreman can take a punch and with his height and reach advantage, he'd give Tyson fits in the ring. I think Foreman would have KO'd Tyson in the later rounds, say the 8th or 9th.
My 3rd pick is Tommy Morrison.
Morrison was easily a top 10 heavyweight of the 1990's and he would have been a good matchup. Morrison had a couple good wins against Foreman and Ruddock. This would be an exciting fight since both guys are big time bangers in the ring. Tyson would probably win by a 5th or 6th round TKo, but it would be a great action packed fight.
It was a good TD and one you haven't done 50 times before. I don't believe.
Sorry I had to school you yet again, boi!!!
FYI: I never said Vitali, Wladimir.
