Mike Tyson was considered to be the greatest American knockout artists to have ever laced up the boxing gloves in his prime and he is still regarded as one of the all-time legends in the sport. However, current WBC champion Deontay Wilder has always considered himself to be a superior heavyweight than Tyson. Due to their enviable knockout power, Mike Tyson and Deontay Wilder have often been compared by the boxing community.

While a lot of people claim Mike Tyson to be the better boxer, Deontay Wilder has a strong fanbase as well. Based on this comparison, former world champion Shannon Briggs has tried to end it in his own way by calling Mike Tyson as the better boxer over the current WBC heavyweight champion.
