And his 9 - 11 record is evidence that you need to learn the sport in its entirety to be successful; the same cannot be said for boxing.
all im saying he ya Tyson brawled but he wasnt an awful boxer, he did know how to box he just wasnt a very good boxer, he was an olympic boxer at one point of his career, he has beaten a handful of boxers with better boxing skills then him, but he wasnt a very good boxer but still I wouldnt say he was dumb to boxing.
