Running up and down the field would most likely be a physiological issue, cramping and muscle tears, body is too big.
Yeah, gk would prob be the best for him.

In soccer,most of the credit goes to attacking players, in top 10 of all time, we only have Beckenbauer, not trying to put down defenders but that is just the way people jugde the sport.

Trying to predict a productive attacking player from another sport would be impossible. That position seems to be instinctive as much as anything else, obviously skill must be extremely high as well.

However, Ronaldo seemed to have a different body type than most attackers. He seems longer/taller than most and freakishly agile for his size. That length has to add velocity to his striking ability. That guy, from those that I've watched, appears to be on a different physical level than any of the others... including Messi, IMO. I'm thankful he was not 100% when we played Portugal.

Tyson could probably hold his own against Suarez out on the soccer pitch.

Ronaldo is nowhere near the Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Pele, Gonzale, Fat Ronaldo and Maradona when it comes to skills but his power and quick feet are fun to watch.

When you watch those players on youtube is like watching Michael Vick or Mayweather, they were simply unreal.

If Tyson had the same power on his feet, he wouldve destroyed a lot of gks.

I remember playing semipro in LA, this team had a fat guy that I was like wtf... is he doing here? He had a basuka on his right foot, every time he had the ball it was cannon coming out, unreal, soccer in here hasn't reach that level when you see freaks of nature playing ball.

MARADONA??? lol...the one foot wonder. His control was great, but he was not the best with both feet. Roberto Carlos was unbelievable and cryuff...he was great, no doubt about that.

Coerver had great skills too
