Was the era between Larry Holms and Evander Holyfield really that week or did Mike Tyson just make it look week by wrecking everyone? It’s hard to say but just maybe if Mike hadn’t come along, someone like Tommy Tucker might be recognized as an all time great.
Regarding the tomato can thing, it seems to me Mike fought some really bad-ass looking mofos. The heavyweight champion who fought the most tomato cans was Ali. Go back and look at some of Ali’s fights. He fought guys who were just an embarrassment. I would even go as far as to say Ali just wanted to make whitey look bad.
