Great post & i agree.
If Ali & Tyson belonged to the same era & were on their prime, it will be a hell of a fight.
I heard the Ali-Frazier " Thrilla In Manila " was televised live in many countries for free.
How much more if Ali's opponent was Tyson? The fans' interest could be greater.
My prediction-Ali could had taught Tyson a boxing lesson in the first 6 rounds, then stopped him in the 7th.
The Pac-Floyd fight could be marvelous if it happened during their prime albeit a lesser bigger than the Ali-Tyson.Why? It could be quite boring as Floyd will run, hold, potshots,etc. all night.If the fight lasts the distance, Floyd will win in the American judges' score cards although Pac clearly won the fight.
Conclusion, as RN posted,Pac vs Floyd will just be an ordinary fight if compared to the global appeal of Ali-Tyson if this fight could had been materialized as per the situations have allowed.
