Professional athletes are still better at something than 99 percent of us. News at 11.

Even when they get old they will still be far better than us.

I can't get over how fast he still is. Mike has killer power for sure, but his ability to dodge punches is almost more impressive.

That's the mark of an shiatty boxer who can't hit his target, not an indication of someone who's ready for a fight.

Watching his old fights the amazing thing is not how hard Tyson hit, which he did, but how accurate he was. So many times he would unload a knockout punch it landed in the worst possible place (for the guy getting hit).

I think it has more to do with straight muscle memory and once he got in that pocket - he just does what he does.

Let's see you walk to the end of the block

Yeah the power is still there, but I'm kind of worried about the accuracy.  He was supposed to be hitting the glove, not the trainer's face.

True, most of his fights didn't go to round 3.  Not that he didn't have the stamina though.

Remember going to a buddy's house for a "fight party" to watch the Tyson-Spinks fight. I left with two large boxes of pizza and three liters of soda.

The key to beating Tyson in MTPO was to dodge as soon as you saw him flash blue for the first 1:30 on the first round. After that, he is sort of manageable, but can still fark you up if you're not careful.

Good news is that you only needed 5000 points to beat him by decision, if you lasted that long.

Tyson in his prime was amazing.  He was quick and he was brutal.  His issue (besides his trainer dying and Don King) was that he expected to win and didn't deal well with someone that didn't get destroyed early.

That is awesome.


Thanks.  It would have been an awesome costume back in third grade...but it would also be a great one for this Halloween...or any Halloween.

Never could beat him or Mr. Dream. Supposedly the final fight is one of the hardest bosses in the game. Mr. Dream replaced Tyson when his contract expired, not the rape conviction contrary to popular belief.

I actually had more problems with Super Macho Man. The damn spin punch.

I beat Tyson the 2nd or 3rd time I got to him as a kid, took me weeks to get by the spin punching forker.

Isn't this supposed to be an exhibition? I think this is all hype.

Farthest I got without passwords is Mr. Sandman. The other two after him I never was able to beat. Those Punch-Out! games were quite difficult.
