What a bunch you have here.... Rahman WHY ???...... TUA beats Toney to win the tournament..... I wouldn't have minded seeing Cooney Vs Bonavena but.

Why not Rahman I think his resume falls in line if not above most of the other fighters? He was dominating Tua in the first fight and IMO won the rematch in a very very close fight. Toney got robbed in their first fight but it was still a competitive fight. And of course he knocked out an ATG Lennox Lewis

Lyle decisions Toney
Ruddock decisions Bonavena

Cooney by KO over Rahman
Young by decision over Tua

Ruddock stops Lyle (shades of Foreman-Lyle and Ruddock-Bonecrusher)
Prime Young escapes with a split-decision over Cooney

Young wins over Ruddock.

If anyone got robbed in that fight, it was Rahman.

I'd have Lyle beating Toney by close decision.

Bonavena beating Ruddock by another close decision.

I think Cooney gets a mid rounds stoppage over Rahman.

And Young decisions Tua.

For side A, I think Lyle decisions Bonavena with a late stoppage possible

For Side B, Young has a tough ride but gets a close win over Cooney


For the final prime Lyle vs prime Young. We already know the answer because it actually happened twice. Young wins a decision!
