Tyson said on UFC Tonight that Royce would have beaten him in the 90's if he just went in as a boxer, kind of awesome for somebody like him to give Royce and MMA credit like that.

Tyson, at least now, is a thoughtful analytical guy, not just some walking flexing bicep like most boxers who talk about MMA

Tyson would have had a puncher's chance, and he knows it.

KOdClowning - Royce would have beaten tyson with leg kicks. Those kicks that Royce throws are deceptively powerful. He would chop down Tyson's legs with 15-25 of those kicks. Royce's kicking technique is very underrated.

lol...at UFC 1 he just threw oblique push kicks to keep control distance, didn't throw leg kicks if I remember correctly.

Young Tyson? You better slap a submission on him fast if it's on the ground because that motherfucker is about to start biting.

Today's Tyson is humble and self-deprecating.

LOL I liked what you did there keep it up son.

Royce's Muay Thai was devastating along with his GSP like take downs.

tyson is just being modest and giving mma its props, but in reality a younger mike tyson with no gloves and told its a street fight would've been a scary mother fucker,and tyson is about 40-50 lbs more muscle,and literally knocked dudes out with the first couple punches.

royce would've charged in, tyson being shorter and with his countering would've thrown his epic uppercut to hook combo, with no gloves and royce being much smaller, would have been ktfo with a broken jaw.

but if royce got him down tyson would've been choked out. but tyson being so shart and compact he may have been able to explode and escape.

ken shamrock literally busted royce up,young tyson damn sure could have

Royce would have won in the first round, without landing a single strike. He would do his mummy walk with his hands out reaching for a hold. He had the worst striking in UFC history. But he would have won.

Amazing how many folks know better than Tyson what Tyson would have done. The truth is, he's right, Royce would have beaten him 9 times out of 10.

Who was the boxer Tyson destroyed in a street fight outside a jewelry store? Mitch Green?

Maybe Royce could win, but that's a scary fight. Phone Post 3.0

Tyson would've been submitted back then. Trust me, I was around back then and didn't want to admit it (out loud), but Royce would've gave him the same treatment. Phone Post 3.0

KOdClowning - 
MMA Playwright - Young Tyson? You better slap a submission on him fast if it's on the ground because that motherfucker is about to start biting.

Today's Tyson is humble and self-deprecating.

Royce would slow Tyson down with kicks. As Royce is limiting Tyson's movement, Tyson's boxing would become less dangerous. That would be the perfect time for Royce to start using his boxing, and tactfully and carefully, start outstriking Tyson . Of course, he wouldn't want to play that game too much, because he COULD get caught. However, he could really start picking his shots, boom, then go back to the strategic leg kicks.

You are kidding right? Have you seen either of these guys fight? Especially in 1993? The idea of Royce even trying to "slow Tyson with leg kicks" is laughable. I respect the hell out of Royce and I don't think it is a totally far out idea that he could win (or lose) the fight if it took place then.

But there is no evidence he would use a "kick the leg" strategy and if he did, he'd get horribly damaged incredibly fast. There is no way he could maintain that distance. A much safer bet would be that Royce would try to pull guard or push kick - low single.

Fuck. Tyson was truly a beast.

There isn't a fighter today that sends shivers down my spine the way Tyson did walking to the gym.

he was the spirit of hate, wrapped in ridiculous muscle, and cloaked in evil, with the speed of a demon.

he was 37-0 before meeting Buster Douglas, his first loss.

the man did not suffer from lack of strength or cardio. I think Royce would have had a hard time with the initial onslaught prime Tyson.

no he would not have, if Royce kept it standing in any way against Tyson he would be waking up a few days later.
