MIKE TYSON. Deontay Wilder. Two of the most devastating knockout merchants in boxing history.
But who would win in a fight?
Obviously a showdown between the two is impossible but Wilder reckons he would have the "killer instinct" to see off the ring icon.
Boxing Fight Simulations has created a bout between the Baddest Man on the Planet and the Bronze Bomber.
And one wins with a massive knockout.
The bare knuckle bout – okay, maybe not every detail is accurate – takes place in a prison and Tyson bursts out of the gates with his usual ferocity.
He lands a few body shots against former WBC king Wilder but expends a lot of energy going for several knockout uppercuts.
Tyson hits the deck first but beats the ten count.
Wilder connects with two further big blows, sending former undisputed world champ Iron Mike to the ground twice more.
It's a massive right from Wilder than ends the fight – but some fight fans were left unimpressed with the outcome.
One commented underneath the YouTube clip: "Man, no, this looks like Wilder vs end of the era Tyson. Give us the 19 year old Mike, prime vs prime. He never even got in once. That's disrespectful, man."
A fellow viewer wrote: "Not a chance Deontay Wilder beats Prime Iron Mike."
SunSport placed Wilder at the top of its list of heaviest hitters at the end of last year.
But that was before Wilder lost his rematch against Tyson Fury via stoppage in Las Vegas back in February.
Tyson, now 54, has since called for Fury to fight Anthony Joshua in a monumental Battle of Britain in the future.
But of more importance to Tyson appears to be his own mortality.
He claimed earlier this year, before announcing his boxing comeback against Roy Jones Jr, that he is "looking forward to death as living might be more complicated than dying".
