you honestly believe that?
Tyson was never a great boxer, much more of a fighter then boxer but he had the fundamentals down and perfected he just wasnt that good at it.. he was a KO puncher with short reach but still, he could read punches, find openings, and capatilize on them.. sure he wasn the typical jab boxer that throws combos, and outboxers there opponent but Tyson still want a lot of fights at what he does best and thats knockin' people out.. he would of lost a LOT more fights then he has if he was completely dumb to boxing.. I feel Tyson is overrated but he wasnt a terrible boxer.
