Obviously we watched Mike Tyson dismantle him, but I look at that as more a testament to the greatness of Mike Tyson and not that Pinklon Thomas was not a good fighter.
The Thomas fight was one of Tyson's better title fight performances. Plus Pinklon was a little past his prime by then.

Yeah well, it seems anybody who Tyson dismantled came into the fight with a style that could trouble him and left a bum immediately thereafter. Not too many people like the idea of supporting a convicted rapist, and more dislike the popularity he received even before he became a lightning rod for the media.
