Speaking after WBSS' tournament, a humble Tyson admitted that he wouldn't walk away with bragging rights in a real fight with Ali.

"I know it's a fantasy game," the boxing legend told Yahoo! Sports.

"Most likely I would win the fantasy, but I wouldn't win the real fight. Ali's the greatest there's ever been."

During a GQ interview in 2016, 'Iron' Mike described Ali as the "most competitive fighter ever."

"But he looked like a model in his prime! He looked more like a model than a fighter. He was just a dead-game guy. He was dead game. He had too much pride. He refused to lose.

"Ali is the most competitive fighter ever."

Muhammad Ali Jr added: "Tyson can't go the distance. He couldn't go 15 rounds.

"He's not a boxer. He's a street fighter. He's a knockout artist. He can never hold up to my father!"
