    Rodney Mullen was 34/35 in contests -- he finished 2nd in his one loss.

    Barry bonds was the last most dominant player to ever play a sport. He still to this day holds all the records and will probably still hold this title a century from now.

    This is not a snarky question, this is a real question: Did Mike Tyson fight anybody good in that 3 years he had before he lost?

    Statistically, Mark McGwire was a better HR hitter, by a lot.

    Tiger is the easy pick, but obviously he's had a steep fall off. Peak Bonds had more impact in baseball than anyone I've ever seen (I did quit watching a long time ago though).

    Also have to include LeBron in there. Probably Brady. And lastly, Joe Chee.

    He took down lots of really good fighters during that time : Berbick, Tillis, Bruno, Spinks, Tucker, Ruddock, Bonecrusher, Pinklon Thomas, etc. and others. A lot of those dudes probably got one of their first, if not first loss against Tyson.

    He fought everybody there was to fight

    iirc Bonecrusher Smith is the only guy he didn't KO

    Those were some fun fights to watch back in the day
