Mike Tyson reveals his preparation for Muhammad Ali fight and would ‘have to go 15 rounds as you ain’t knocking him out’

MIKE TYSON admits he would have had his work cut out in a fantasy fight against fellow boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

The pair are considered to be two of the best heavyweights of all time with many fight fans wishing their careers crossed paths.

During coronavirus lockdown the World Boxing Super Series even simulated a scrap between the two, with Tyson claiming a unanimous points win.

Now Iron Mike has spoken of how he thinks the fight would go against “vicious animal” Ali.

Speaking on social media, the 53-year-old said: “I would know one thing – I would have to be ready to go 15 rounds.

“I would be prepared to go 15 rounds with him because listen, I’m just keeping it real, ain’t nobody knocking him out.

“In his prime, they ain’t knocking him out. Even [Larry] Holmes, Ali’s one strange guy, you’ve gotta kill him to beat him, he won’t quit.

“Isn’t that weird, in his prime he looks like a model, he doesn’t even look like a fighter.

“It ain’t pretty, he’s not pretty either, he’s a junkyard dog with a pretty face. He’s pretty, but he ain’t pretty. Inside he’s as nasty as me.

“He’s a vicious animal.”

Tyson has previously admitted that he feels Ali would have beaten him if they had ever fought in their prime.

And that’s an opinion, unsurprisingly, shared by Muhammad Ali Jr, who thinks his old man would have “kicked Tyson’s butt”.

But as SunSport exclusively revealed last month, Ali wasn’t so sure he would have beaten ‘The Baddest Man On The Planet’.

Speaking to author of ‘Muhammad Ali, Life Of A Legend’, Fiaz Rafiq, Ali’s old foe George Foreman said: “Muhammad Ali told me himself.

“I said to him, ‘Do you think Tyson could beat anybody?’

“He said, ‘Man, Tyson hits so hard.’

“He felt Tyson hit harder than anyone he’d faced.

“He told me once that he didn’t have the confidence he could have beaten Mike Tyson.”

Now Tyson is planning on a sensational boxing comeback, with him using lockdown to undergo a stunning body transformation.

A likely opponent, in a charity exhibition fight, is old foe Evander Holyfield, who is 2-0 up versus Tyson.

Even current WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury has said he would be interested in some rounds against his great hero.
