very good post and i agree with everything

except he might knock wladimir out

i think if wladimir gets through five or six rounds he'd set up a late stoppage and morrison would be in the same situation many wladimir opponents find themselves in late in the fight

but tommy had huge power and knew how to land it
wladimir might have to get outside his shell a bit to slow morrison down and run the risk of getting tagged
lesser punchers have stopped wladimir (though sanders and brewster are both huge hitters and certainly not far behind)

Klitschkos are great fighters like Lewis, most would lose to them.

Morrison was a lot of fun to have around. He was a monster puncher, and he could throw with both hands and in combination. He had a ton of heart.

He was also a very tense guy, and that was a big part of his stamina and chin issues. Tightness is a fighter's worst enemy, and he proved it.

He was a good fighter with some outstanding attributes and some tremendous, costly flaws. Someone on here called him a "joke", and that's way over the top- and just plain wrong.

Unfortunately I don't Think any of those guys were anywhere near top fighters apart from Foreman who was in his 40's. Tommy was value for money certainly, great to watch, but I don't know where people actually rank him, so I don't know whether he's under-rated or over-rated, outside the top 30 heavyweights I'd say.

Dunno if he's under or overrated or maybe just rated where he belongs (he did beat Foreman) but I saw a recent pic of him in the new RING magazine and I think if I bumped into him on the street, I would not recognize him. He looks VERY different than this guy...
