The Lounge>Who Would Win in a Fight Between Bruce Lee and Mike Tyson?
rico 04:37 PM 03-17-2012
Alright Planeteers, I've been arguing on message boards with people about this off and on for a couple years now and I want to get CP's input on it. The question is this: Who would win in a fight between Bruce Lee and Mike Tyson in his prime? Let's hear it!

But what if the force of the guy's kick is 1/2 of the opponent's punch?

Tyson was as fast as Lee :-)

Lee hardly fought any pro fights :-)

Cant believe the crazy shit being thrown around here.

Lee's fights in movies do not count as pro fights. If you can post a link that indicates that Bruce Lee had more than 10 pro fights (I think he had less), it'd be much appreciated.

Bruce Lee was 5'7" 128 lbs. Mike Tyson 5'10" 220. It wouldn't even be close.

I don't think any boxer could beat a competent martial artist. Have you ever seen a boxer fight MMA? They always get choked out within 30 seconds. Boxing is a sport, not a martial art. The boxer would have zero ground fighting skills. It wouldn't even be a contest.

It would really depend on the rules of the fight.
If Lee could ONLY box...Tyson.
If it's no-holds barred...Lee (by a COUNTRY MILE).

If Lee was alive he would win unless Tyson got his hands on him

Not always true, but many times is. For an exception, youtube Tim Sylvia vs. Ray Mercer.. One of the funniest videos ever.

I swear I have heard that Tyson was skilled in grappling/wrestling.

Yeah, if Bruce sat still with his chin in the air.


Tyson will never be thought of as a chump, ever, but Bruce would win. He had too much speed and power for Tyson to deal with.

The guy holding that bag had multiple broken ribs from that kick.

The only proof of his fights are hearsay from other people, when he did fight it was closed.. There are tons of info out there of him losing and winning the same fights depending on the witnesses.. Too much hearsay..

And the only links are hearsays..

People want to give the nod to Lee for all his fighting on the streets growing up.. Tyson did the same thing..

Everyone gives Lee this mythical level of skill, I am not saying he was not badass.. But the guy was not a god..

Tyson would get his hands on him. I doubt he would spend the entire time basically shadow-boxing, looking like some oaf trying to swat flies off his back.
