Sometimes I'm not sure if you two are are the same page as everyone else (KI & AS)?!
Better boxers than Tyson:
Pinklon Thomas KO'd
Travor Berbick KO'd
Bonecrusher Smith Unanimous Dec
Tony Tucker Unanimous Dec
Tony Tubbs KO'd
Tyrell Biggs KO'd
Larry Holmes Ko'd (alright, I'll concede an over the hill Holmes)
Mike Spinks KO'd
Carl Williams Ko'd
Razor Ruddock beaten twice
Now you could argue that none of these fighters were an Ali or Lewis, but at the time they were the best in the HW division & Tyson whooped them all. Tyson only started getting beat when Robin Givens got her disgusting claws in him & fucked up his head.
With that said I've always thought that a Ali in his prime Vs Lennox Lewis in his prime would have been an awesome fight.
