Riddick Bowe

I Could Beat Mike Tyson ...

RIGHT NOW!

We spoke with "Big Daddy" Bowe who tells us he can still fight at the age of 46 ... and says his confidence level is still through the roof. 

"I could beat Tyson now, 20 years ago, or when we were in school together," Bowe says ... "There's a reason my record is 43-1."

Bowe -- who was training to be a pro wrestler in 2013 -- says the proof is in his stats ... "I took Holyfield twice and he took Tyson twice. I'm bigger and quicker than Holyfield. Tyson wouldn't know what hit him."

He adds, "Also, Tyson wouldn't be able to take my ear off because I'm too tall and he can't jump that high."

Of course, Tyson insists his fighting days are over ... but if he ever gets the itch to get back in the ring, Bowe says ... to quote Doc Holliday ... "I'll be your Huckleberry." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

For those of you arguing MMA vs Boxing.....Get over it and have respect for both sports. Boxing as a sport paved the way for MMA. While I do personally prefer MMA over Boxing, I still have nothing but respect for boxing as well.

A young Bowe vs a young Tyson ? No Bowe, I doubt you'd win. Tyson beat everyone with the type of record you got, and beat them BAD ! Where were you when he was in his heyday ? Fighting weaker opponents to run up your W-L record...

If they were both in their prime my money would be on Tyson in a heartbeat. Nowadays I think Bowe would probably be able to take him, but then again who really cares?

Sammy Scaff, Mitch Green and Donovan Ruddock were almost the same height of Bowe (if not taller), but they have been knocked down without any "ear bite"! The only limit of Tyson has been Tyson himself., after a certain point of his life/career
