LeBron James is one of the best basketball players on the planet. Part of that is just natural skill, and some of it is the sheer strength, speed, and conditioning of LeBron’s body, which he has spent millions of dollars on (and countless hours) to ensure it’s at the uppermost tier.
But for as big and strong as LeBron is, would you go so far as to say he’d knock out Mike Tyson?
One fan on Twitter did just that, implying that if Bron took his talents to the ring, he’d be able to “contain” and completely “knockout” Mr. Tyson.

In case you don’t know, 5’10”, 240 pound Mike Tyson is one of the greatest boxers in history with a career record of 50-6 and 44 knockouts to his name. He’s big, he’s tough, and he’s one of the hardest hitters the world has ever seen.
Obviously, the idea that he’d lose to Bron is highly controversial and got a lot of criticism by the fans.

Yeah, people just aren’t sold — and neither am I. Perhaps LeBron should stick to basketball and leave the trained fighters alone…
