This is one of those fights were you just wound't know would happen. It would certainly via KO, but I wound't like to bet who'd be on the recieving end of it.

Both to unpredicable.

Sanders can give and take. Morrison can only give. Sanders blows him away with the left hand in 4 rounds.

I think Corrie's underrated handspeed catches Morrison early and stops him. If this fight gets to the mid rounds then it becomes a wild and ragged slugfest, with Morrison getting the win if he is in respectable condition.

Great fight while it lasts. I think the decider is the chin factor and Sanders proved to have a better chin imo, even if he was less inconsistent.
I think Sanders stops him early, in a shoot out. but anything could happen

if they both show up at their absolute best:

Going with morrison via decision. on his best night he was the superior boxer
and he'd probably have to box to win
sanders was a tough cookie and a supremely gifted athlete, even if he had a rep for golfing harder than he trained

but would not be surprised in the least if sanders knocked the red out of tommy's hair

after all, the guy lost to friggin sylvester stallone in a streetfight in rocky 5:boxing:


i cant think of many more exciting fights at HW

Morrison is the better boxer but he doesn't have the chin of Sanders. I'll take Sanders by KO in a fight he is losing on the cards before he sparks Morrison with a bomb.

I think Morrison actually was a better boxer but the only time I remember him fighting southpaws was Vaulin and Hipp and they both landed alot of punches and gave him fits. Though Morrison had the power to stop Sanders, Sanders would land first. And Morrison's chin would not respond well.

Very interesting fight.

First off I don't think chins will play a factor in this fight since both guys could flat out bang, and a clean shot from either fighter would put the other guy down. However, Sanders's money shot was his straight left, whilst Tommy's was his left hook. In a battle of orthodox versus southpaw generally the guy with the better straight shot has the advantage since he's able to land it with more regularity. Saying that, I think Tommy's slightly superior endurance and boxing ability (two qualities he was most definitely not known for) will help him in this fight, and if he can avoid Sanders's early rounds surges then I think he picks him apart in the mid rounds and stops him. I could also easily see either fighter blowing the other out of the water early, but Tommy has the slight advantage if it goes into the mid rounds.

Great match while it lasts with Morrison blowing out Sanders early.

Sanders was more of an opportunist ko merchant, who didn't defend his chin. Fast and brutal, but had low guard/high chin syndrome in epic proportions. Not that Morrison had a better chin, but he took better care of it, and i don't think Corrie's straight arm attacks from a southpaw stance are going to do him any favours against a crouching left hooker like Morrison.

Corrie Sanders could bang? Since when? Because he knocked out glass chin Wlad? That is the only time he showed any real power in his career. Tommy Morrison doesnt have a chin? Why because Lennox Lewis stopped him? Because Mercer stopped him? Or because he got caught looking past Michael Bent? Wait wait I know because he got knocked down by Ross Purrity and got up and Wlad who actually does have a glass chin gotk knocked out by Purrity.

Morrison's chin was better than Joe Louis, No 170 pound boxer could rock him like Billy Conn did Louis. Corrie Sanders power is built up to make Wlad's chin and overall ability seem higher by saying he was knocked out by a good fighter.

In reality Morrison was far superior to Sanders in everyway. Does that mean Morrison couldnt be stopped by Sanders? Nope any person can be stopped by 9 out of 10 times Morrison would stop Sanders

my guess would be since around his 18th birthday when the manstrength started to come

dude could hit very hard
he's the only man to seriously stun vitali

if i can remember correctly without looking at his record i think he's got about ten or 15 first round knockouts, and they are not all in south africa against cab drivers

he was an unbelievably gifted athlete
many people consider him the hardest hitting southpaw ever

are you sure you aren't thinking of corey sanders? (T-Rex)

interesting matchup. While I think Morrison was overall the better fighter, his chin was a major downfall. I can imagine him winning clearly, but then getting popped by Sanders and being in lala land. Sanders didnt have that much going for him, but he was definitely fast and hit hard. that surprise power would catch Morrison eventually.

If Morrison could survive past about round 6, he could win. but with his jaw...I dont know. I see Sanders putting him down and overwhelming him after.

Sanders could hit very hard and had fast hands for a big heavyweight. Most of his wins were by KO. You could make a lot of valid criticisms of Corrie, but not being a puncher isn't one of them.

So having alot of knockouts over nobodies mean you can punch? Great so Tye Fields is harder puncher than George Foreman. Sanders power is so great that he couldnt knock out glass chin Hasim Rahman. Oooh he hurt Vitali? So did a washed up Lennox Lewis. Vitali being hurt shows how overrated he is not how great Sanders power is. Vitali avoids anybody who is in their primes or have any talent just like his brother does and Manny Pac dos.

When you look at Sanders career he only knocked out Wlad and as I said Wlad has a poor chin.

Morrison would smash him

Sanders KOed Wladimir, and truth be told thats better than anything Morrison was able to accomplish. he also almost finished off Rahman early but fell apart late, which is why I would favor Morrison over him if the fight goes past 6, maybe even 5 rounds.

The better fighter doesnt always win. Morrison had a bad jaw, and although Sanders was quite flawed himself he had surprising power that would have exploited Morrison's chin.
although there is a good chance Morrison survives and takes him out late/outboxes him.
