Who did a better job against Tony Tucker, Tyson or Lewis.

Both fighters won clearly but he put up more resistance against Tyson than he did against Lewis but that was Tucker's his prime. Bare in mind Tucker was a past it when he fought Lewis but Lewis still dropped him, had him badly hurt towards the end of one of those rounds, he was extremely shaky on his feet at that point in the fight, however he was nailing Lewis good style on the ropes with multiple punches before Lewis rallied back and put him on queer street in that round, Lewis also took his foot off the gas in the last few rounds and let Tucker take the play away from him a bit, he still won clearly of coarse. Im sure dropped Tucker twice come to think of it by im not 100% certain.


Tyson got nailed quite a few times with uppercuts and short inside right hands/hooks, Tucker's jab worked effectively in some rounds to, not many but a few, that said Tyson fought well because did not get frustrated with all the holding, although personally i think he would of boiled over if things had not been going in his favour but thats another story, he did some nice body work in the fight and when all said and done he was fighting a prime Tucker.

Tyson. Tucker was in his prime when he fought Tyson. He was already over the hill with drug problems when he fought Lewis and made it a close fight.

Tyson. Tucker was prime when that fight happened. Easy question.

Made it a close fight? he was on the canvas twice, he lost the fight as clear as Mike beat him, if not clearer with the KD's.

Tucker was a wasted drug addict when he fought Lewis. It's a no-contest. Tyson FTW.

Yes, it was close. If you look away from the two kd's. :rolleyes: According to that logic the first Marquez-Pacman fight wasn't close either!

Totally different scenario, Marquez was wining most of the rounds after the KD's, Tucker was not.

BUT STILL, nevertheless, Tucker did an excellent job considering he was past his prime and that he was put down twice. He had several good rounds, especially towards the end and shook Lewis a few times.

You are giving him way too much credit, he lost the fight clearly and was knocked down twice and shaking like a leaf in one of the rounds, if there was 5/10 seconds longer in that round i guarantee he would of been stopped. The only reason Tucker won any of the last few rounds is because Lewis started showboating because he knew he was the boss in the fight, what does that tell you?
