  • In reality, Tyson in his prime would have destroyed Butterbean (even in his prime). If Butterbean wins against Tyson today, yup, it’s fantasy for sure.
    Wilder and Fury being pushed back is no surprise. Wilder in a tight spot this time. It will be sink or swim since this third installment is a last chance. Wilder is still dangerous with his wild punches.

  • I really don’t see Deontay Wilder beating Tyson Fury. I mean Tyson clearly won the first fight on points and that was after 2 comeback fights and a very dangerous Deontay Wilder. Schools him easily in the rematch. I just wanna see Tyson beat Wilder again then fight AJ for the Undisputed Championships…

    • I think the favorite is Fury as demonstrated in the first two fights. However, Wilder did dropped Fury with some power punches and this is proof Wilder is a wild card capable of hitting Fury.

  • Wow, I predicted round two. But Ali stopping Holyfield I couldn’t see, even in his prime. Victory yes, Frazier knocking out Lewis was way off, as I think Lewis would have won a decision over Frazier. True Frzier was younger than Lewis when he was the real champ compared to Lewis.

  • I don’t Eric “Butterbean” Esch would of gone 2 minutes with prime Tyson let alone 2 rounds.

    • Jake spot on. How can you even compare – it’s IMPOSSIBLE, stupid and disgraceful to each legend’s name. Take your fake, fantasy editions to WWE because that’s all it is worth

  • I am a boxing expert and have written books on the subject and what I saw in the last Fury Wilder fight was a Quick stoppage. Wilder was ahead on all the judges score cards when the ref jumped in and stopped the fight…Tell me boxing isn’t rigged!!!
