A YouTuber decided to pit Mike Tyson in his prime against Deontay Wilder on Fight Night Champion to see who would win.
YouTube user TheIgorotWarrior7 decided to pit the two American's head to head in the virtual world to see who came out on top.
The duo begin swinging firm strikes at one another early in the first round to try and assert dominance.
Wilder has the clear height advantage standing near six foot six while Tyson is five foot eight.
However, Tyson's boxing style in real life was very strategic and didn't rely on brute strength to stay in control.
The second round devolves into a much cagier affair with the focus being body shots from both boxers.
But the third round would see the contest swing in Tyson's favour and ultimately see him crowned victorious.
'The Baddest Man Alive' levels Wilder with two firm gut shots before hitting him with an uppercut that downs him.
Wilder gets back on his fight but the fight doesn't last a minute following it.
He strikes Wilder with another stiff uppercut that puts him down for the count and sees Tyson emerge the winner.
Fans have speculated for years what would actually happen if the pair squared off in the ring in their primes.
According to Wilder, he 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," he 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, the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' responded: "I don't think so."
Who do you think would win in a fight between Tyson & Wilder?
