Boxing fans reckon Mike Tyson would need just three rounds to KO Deontay Wilder

Mike Tyson insisted that Deontay Wilder would not stand a chance against him in his prime

Boxing fans have sided with Mike Tyson’s claim that Deontay Wilder would stand no chance against him in his prime.

Some even believe that the Bronze Bomber would not have even lasted three rounds with Iron Mike.

Wilder is one of the most feared boxers in the world of today – where he has gone 42 fights without loss.

The 34-year-old has held the WBC heavyweight belt since 2015 and is been regarded as one of the best of his generation.

But Tyson believes that if the two went toe-to-toe in their primes, there would only be one winner.

He tweeted: “I don’t think Wilder would have beat me in my prime. I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again.”

Fans backed up the former undisputed world champion, with one saying: “No-one beats you in your prime Mr.Iron Mike. No-one.”

“Prime Tyson > Everyone,” another quipped.

“You’d of done him in 3 rounds,” a third replied.

Another agreed, saying: “He wouldn’t have lasted 3 rounds mike!!”

And this fan said: “I’ve said a thousand times, a prime Tyson beats any heavyweight in history.

“Just to savage and aggressive for anyone and the power generated from a hook was unbelievable. In his prime he was unstoppable. In my opinion.”

Tyson is known as one of, if not, the best heavyweight boxers of all time.

At 20 years, four months and 22 days he became the youngest ever boxer to win a heavyweight title.

In his first 19 fights, the New York-born fighter won them all by knockout – with 12 coming in the first round.

Out of 46 fights, he lost just once before his double defeat to Evander Holyfield – the second infamously being a disqualification after biting his opponent’s ear.
