    Not even 95 was Jordan bigger.. by 97 yeah... after the bite fight he took a massive hit but upon Tysons release from prison he was far and away the biggest athlete in sports and on the planet..even in jail he was the most talked about athlete on the planet. It wasn't even a question of if Tyson could win his titles back but when. I remember people walking around in Free Tyson shirts.

    It wouldn’t be any different than a young Tyson coming in and clearing out a weak heavyweight division today. But when it was time to really show his heart he couldn’t. He’s nowhere near a Holyfield, who came up from cruiserweight and stood in with everyone.

    That’s basically what I just said. I’m older than you plus I’m from Chicago, so I know this already.

    BBC world news coverage >>>>> any American network.

    I really didn’t understand how sheltered to the rest of the world we are until I lived abroad.

    The average first world citizen outside the US knows more about politics/ events/ sports worldwide than the average American.

    80s Tyson
    90s Jordan

    Is the best summary.

    It's difficult to compare though:
    Everybody got around to watch a "Tyson fight". This was a once in a while thing, but a major event.
    Jordan would consistently make the news with a highlight and had a constant stream of news.

    In terms of pop culture, we had Jordans and there was also:

    People really forget how big Tyson was. He had endorsements, lunchboxes and all other kinds of deals rolling in at a time when racism was still blatant and in your face (unlike now where its covert but still present) because he was just that dope.

    He was one of our own doing it big on a level that was just so far and beyond anything else and had the talent to back up his ego.

    Dude was street, unapologetic and real with no soft shoeing or media training in interviews, just keeping it all the way 100.

    The true prototype for what would come after in terms of rappers wanting to be like him and the closest we ever got to a real life Tony Montana rags to riches story that unfolded in front of our eyes and his talent/achievements/style is something that still stands to this day and likely will never be touched because he was a true heavweight that moved with the speed and accuracy of a welterweight.

    Same Holyfield who was popped using steroids and ended up with heart problems because of it? That couldn't hold on to the belts or unify? Same Holyfield who damn near got beat by an even oldet Holmes that Tyson managed to knock out in 4 rounds? Same Holyfield that feasted on Tysons left overs? Get real.. Holyfield was a great fighter and so was Tyson.. Holyfield would even tell you he needed to beat Tyson for his legacy and heavyweight legitimacy, Tyson was already being talked about as one of thr greats by the time the 80s ended, thats with just 3yrs in.. Tyson was a generational talent that only comes around maybe every 50 years.

    People actually picked Spinks to beat Tyson. He was undefeated going into that fight and Tyson wiped him out in 1 round sending him into retirement.
