    Ip Man is a good base to start the argument on

    Both are very explosive, in terms of the base of their styles. Both absurdly powerful and stupidly fast. But it’s not a full fight: Bruce Lee uses his hands. He uses his legs. He fights sitting and standing and even flipping. Iron Mike uses his fists, and let’s say on the streets the big homie uses kicks too… there’s not way his kicking is as powerful or effective as Bruce Lee’s. Bruce has also demonstrated massive stamina. Chuck Norris could not beat Bruce Lee. So… I mean, getting hit by Chuck Norris is equivalent to being patted on the back by Mike Tyson, but… who even says Bruce Lee gets hit?

    We’re pitting the best fighter of all time against a great boxer. Bruce Lee is a great boxer, not to speak of all those other techniques. It’s like MMA vs Boxing. It’s kind of a nonfight. Of course a plane is ‘faster’ than a tank.

    mike. let’s not joke: though mike only comes from combat sports, he still has a substantial number of advantages over bruce.

    in theory id like to root for Bruce thinking that knowledge overcomes all. But I think there is very good reason for fighting in similar weight classes. Lee would probably do well in a sanctioned match with points rules and a ref vs a street to the death against a truck.

    i would love to know what “substantial number of advantages” tyson has over bruce. aside from weight, i highly would doubt tyson has anything over bruce.

    tyson fans need to realize that tyson was barely a boxer. he went into all his fights brawling out like he was in a regular street fight. against another boxer, that brawler style garbage might work, but against bruce…there is no match.

    bruce lee….in an early knockout or tko….

    Logic would win bruce lee the best martial arts fighter because mike tyson has no such reflections have bruce and would be beaten to a pulp

  • The truth

    Tyson was a great boxer, your just uneducated weight matters bruce lee was also not the greatest in fact he was beaten numerous times in competitions his fitness was second to none though. But his skill levels were disputed and mike tyson was the heavyweight champion undisputed 3 times, mike wins.

    Like most great sporting events there is no way to tell who would win this one I’m afraid. That being said I feel like giving my opinion.
    Tyson is an astounding athlete and my favourite heavyweight boxer of all time (exception of balboa haha) If he were to land only a few hooks I’m not sure how Lee would react to such force. However Lee is the king of martial arts and was in peak physical shape throughout his life. In a street fight I think he’s just too quick and although Tysons upper body blocks are excellent, boxers are solely concerned with what goes by the rules of boxing. Lee has the full range of attacks which Tyson cannot possibly avoid, I think Lee’s experience and knowledge of KJD would carry him through on this one. Tyson doesn’t have the flexibility needed to dodge the attacks. Sorry mike.

    JKD I apologise, autocorrect for some reason.

    tyson wins easy, firstly he is nearly 100 pounds heavyer, alot more powerful, no kick even a bruce lee kick is as fast as a punch, especialy a pro boxers punch, so seeing as tyson could dodge and slip most pro boxers punches he would see a kick coming a mile off which he would counter with a barrage of devastating hooks and uppercuts which would very likeley kill poor brucey boy. anyone that actualy belives bruce would have this is obviously a majour bruce lee fan boy or buying into the whole mystic kung fu nonsense, proven to be almost useless in a real combat situation, bruce lee was an actor and a showman, tyson was undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, bruce lee destroyed in about 15 seconds, sorry

    Dude,seriously i mean i know just aswell as you that Bruce was in the acting business but still the only thing Tyson really has against Bruce is the strength and the impact from each blow,and even with that being said it wouldn’t even be put to good use in such a battle,i mean think about it while Tyson is throwing air jabs and tiring out Bruce will be studying his moves while blocking them while and taking every opportunity he has to attack all at the same time.Now because Tyson is built pretty solid so it’s gonna take bruce some time to bring him down but he’s not afraid of a challenge and definitely has the stamina for it.So ask yourself this,would strength win against speed and skill?And one more thing in the ring Mike may have a slight chance of winning because of his experience in that area but if your looking to see an all out epic fight to the death of even just a street fight there’s no chance of victory for poor ol Mikey.Nuff Said.
