The final saw Muhammad Ali face Mike Tyson and Mike eventually won on the scorecards after 12 rounds.
However, Mike now believes the result were inaccurate, and that Ali would have beaten won in a real fight.
‘I know it was just a fantasy game. I would likely win the fantasy but would lose the real fight,’ Tyson told Yahoo.
‘Ali remains the greatest there’s ever been for boxing.’
