Joshua, who is currently in possession of four of the five world heavyweight titles, was asked who would win a bout between arguably the two biggest names in the sport’s history on a JD Sports Instagram Live stream. “It’s quite interesting because in the era of Muhammad Ali’s heavyweight reign, the heavyweights were ranked as the cruiser weights of the Mike Tyson era,” AJ responded. “With Lennox Lewis, you know how they started getting bigger, hence why in the amateurs they then created a super-heavyweight division. “The current heavyweight division in the amateurs is what we class as the cruiserweight division. So Muhammad Ali wouldn’t have been a fully fledged heavyweight. “So let’s say we bulked Muhammad Ali up and put size and strength to him, I truly believe Mike Tyson would’ve won. The reason being when you watch the fight with Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali, you see a certain Tyson-esque to Frazier’s style. “Tyson used to study that Joe Frazier. The moving, the hooks. He managed to put Ali down in the fight, it was a very tough fight for Ali. “And I just believe Mike Tyson was better schooled, times have evolved, Mike Tyson was more developed. More science, more information. “So I think that Mike Tyson would’ve won, in my humble opinion.” However, Tyson believes he would not have beaten Ali, labelling the legendary fighter “the greatest there’s ever been”. Speaking to Yahoo Sports,Tyson said: “I know it’s a fantasy game. Most likely I would win the fantasy, I wouldn’t win the real fight. Ali’s the greatest there’s ever been.” Meanwhile, Tyson has also claimed that the UFC’s top stars will never make as much money as the best boxers.Tags: Anthony JoshuaJoe Fraziermike tysonlast_img
