TAKING THE MIKE
Interestingly, Haye doesn’t rate Mike Tyson – headliner Holyfield’s most infamous opponent – as one of the top five heavyweights of all time.
He told the Costello and Bunce podcast: “How many fights did he (Tyson) have where he was behind on points? Where he got put down, hurt and came back, that’s the question.
“The moment he started to lose or it started to get tough, it seemed to go the other way.
“Many fighters – Holyfield, Lennox Lewis – they’ve all had tough fights where they are on the brink of losing and found a way to win, I’ve never seen that with Tyson.
“I find it hard to say someone’s in the top five of all time if they’ve never had a fight which they were losing and they came back to win.”
