Mike Tyson vs Deontay Wilder simulated on Fight Night Champion after Bronze Bomber claimed he could KO prime Iron MikeNovember 24, 2020
DEONTAY WILDER was right in his prediction that someone would land a knockout should he fight prime Mike Tyson.
Unfortunately for the Bronze Bomber, it was the Baddest Man on the Planet that secured a brutal finish in a Fight Night Champion simulated bout.
The 35-year-old stated earlier this year that Iron Mike wouldn't be able to deal with his 'killer instinct'.
And top YouTuber G Sports Gaming decided to put that to the test, with Wilder succumbing to a sixth round KO defeat.
Tyson started the contest on the front foot as he targeted his American compatriot's torso.
After repeated power punches, Tyson finally managed to drop Wilder in the sixth round with a heavy uppercut.
And the 54-year-old then finished the contest once Wilder got back to his feet as he sent him crashing to the canvas with a vicious left hook to his opponent's ribs.
This time Wilder – who has been slammed by Anthony Joshua for dodging him – was unable to beat the count.
Speaking of what would happen should he face Tyson, Wilder told EsNews: "My hand speed, I'm too long, I'm too tall, my athleticism, my feetwork, all that gives me an advantage, it plays a big part.
"No disrespect to Mike Tyson, in his era he was the best but this is a new era.
"No old-school fighter should beat a new-school fighter. Look at the technology we have.
"Nobody has a natural killer instinct as I do, ain't anybody could ever knock me out. I'm very confident in what I say and I speak what I do."
In 2018 he stated: "Me vs Tyson in '86, I'd kick the hell outta that guy.
"Listen, I've got to keep it real. I know people always go back to the old school or look at the new school and there's no school where I'm not No1 on Earth."
Tyson – who criticised Wilder for making excuses as to why he lost to Tyson Fury – responded to the 2018 remarks by insisting Wilder has never faced someone like him.
He said: "I just heard Deontay Wilder said he would destroy a young Mike Tyson.
"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!"
Tyson is looking to display his immense knockout power once again this weekend when he faces Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.
It will be the first time he has stepped back inside the ring since losing to Kevin McBride in July 2005.
