Mike Tyson not in Frank Warren’s top 10 greatest heavyweights due to ‘sodding around, drugging it and boozing’

Tyson is back in shape to face Jones Jr

“A bit like Daniel Dubois in some ways, he sort of captured the public’s imagination in devastating style,” Warren told Talk Sport.

“He won a world title and everybody was talking about him. For me, he was one of the most exciting young heavyweights.

“However, he doesn’t get in my top ten because he just did not last the course. He was sodding around, drugging it and boozing, went to prison. He just didn’t do it for me.

“As a young man he was very, very exciting and you’ve always got those fights that you think about.

“At his best, would he have beaten Muhammad Ali at Ali’s best? They would always have been great fights.

“But I don’t think he would’ve beaten Sonny Liston, I don’t think he’d have beaten [prime] Larry Holmes, I don’t think he’d have beaten Ali, I don’t think he’d have beaten Joe Frazier and I certainly don’t think he’d have beaten George Foreman.”
