YouTube user G Sports Gaming decided to pit the two American's head to head in the virtual world to see who came out on top.
Wilder has a clear height advantage over Tyson, but it's clear from the get go that their punching power is similar and Tyson doesn't rely on just raw power.
Tyson's main target throughout is the torso, but the second round sees him go too hard and tire out.
Wilder begins to gain a little more offence, but Tyson's defence ensures he is always in control.
Round six sees Tyson's knock Wilder down with a stiff uppercut, but the former WBC world champion gets back to his feet.
It was for naught however as another firm body shot puts Wilder down for the count and gives Tyson the win.
Wilder himself thinks he would come out the victor.
When TMZ specifically asked Wilder in 2018 if he would stand a chance against Tyson, he unequivocally responded: "Yes."
But the 'Bronze Bomber' went on to proclaim that he fears no heavyweight, past or present, by adding that whether they're "old school [or] new school, I knock them all out."
'Iron Mike' then fired back at the claims.
"I just heard Deontay Wilder said he would destroy a young Mike Tyson," the 54-year-old said.
"My thoughts are that it's easy to talk until you actually get in the ring.
"I like Wilder, but he's never been in there with someone that ferocious [and] who truly wants to break his ribs with every punch. I don't see it!
"I love Wilder's confidence [and] you need that to sit atop the heavyweight division.
"He's hungry and shows up in probably best shape in the division, but there are levels to it and he's still adding to his arsenal."
When TMZ asked Tyson if he could see Wilder beating him in his prime in a separate interview, 'The Baddest Man on the Planet' responded: "I don't think so."
Sound off in the comments.
