One boxing fan has gone to extreme lengths to find out who would win in a dream fighting between Mike Tyson and Deontay Wilder.
The two Americans are well known for their brutal power inside the ring, and it’s often discussed who is actually the heavier hitter between the two, with Wilder’s record seemingly giving him the edge in terms of knockout finishes.
However, when you ask the majority of people and boxing fans, they’ll vouch that Tyson would get the job done, simply because he’s the better boxer of the two.
But, that doesn’t mean to say Wilder doesn’t have a chance if this fight were to ever happen. Of course, it won’t ever happen as they are two different eras, but if it did, all the ‘Bronze Bomber’ would need is one opportunity, and he’d more than likely take it.
Look at his fight against Luis Ortiz. He was schooled and outfought for seven rounds, until he delivered one brutal shot to the Cuban, dropping him in the process.
Unfortunately for Wilder and his fans, his empire came crashing down earlier this year as he lost his WBC belt to Brit Tyson Fury, who absolutely schooled him that night, but he legacy in boxing remains the same. He’s the man who can end it all with just one punch.
And that is similar to how ‘Iron Mike’ was viewed back in the day, and that is why the two are constantly linked and compared.
Sadly for all boxing fans, Tyson and Wilder will NEVER step foot in the ring together in the real world, but that doesn’t mean to say they can’t do it in the gaming world.
Thanks to ‘Boxing Fight Simulations’ YouTube channel, we can watch a fight between the two take place, and to make it even better, they’ve removed the gloves!
As you can see in the video above, it’s a straight out brawl which is evidently taking place in a prison with fellow prisoners at ringside.
Two massive hitters without the padded gloves. Ouch.
Maybe surprisingly, it’s Wilder who gets the better of his countryman in the video, dropping him a couple of times before eventually knocking him out.
Tyson couldn’t really land anything of note, despite throwing a lot of punches Wilder’s way, which is unrealistic in itself to be honest, but it’s still a fascinating watch.
Of course, you must take this with a pinch of salt because at the end of the day, it’s a video game, but still, it’s a very entertaining watch and gives us a chance to dream and debate about what would actually happen if the two were to fight.
