Prime Tua was a murderous puncher, and he COULD knock out pretty much any man on the planet. But WOULD he against most of the guys listed here? I doubt it. Guys get to be all time greats by fighting smart. Even at his best, Tua was very one-dimensional. Marciano and Tyson might have traded with him, but most of the others would outfox him and take wide decisions, or knock him out when he ran out of gas.

Fine post.. 'One-dimensional' totally sums it up.

Very much the modern day Earnie Shavers, and has the proverbial punchers chance against anyone.

Tremendous puncher, but guys like Louis, Patterson, Tyson and Ali are just on a totally different level in terms of skill. Tua wasn't a very skilled boxer but he was extremely powerful and had a great chin.

That isn't enough to beat guys who are all around better than you. I agree, punchers chance is all he has and that's a slim one.

If it's true what Rahman said post fight then even his best attribute does not stack up very high all time.
size is very important in boxing. does size decide everything? of course not. size can be overcome. but there's a reason why boxing is one of the few sports that has weight divisions.

with size advantages , you have to take into account styles and attributes.

with a super quick boxer like ali or someone as well rounded as larry holmes , size will not be much of a factor. they can find ways to overcome it.

but if you're talking about a slugger/brawler type or someone not very strong or someone not very quickfooted , a size advantage will have more affect.

tua was no technical boxing maestro by any means but i think some people automatically assume he has no skills.

is it because they maybe only saw the 250 lb. tua who threw one punch at a time?

for a 5'10 man with a short reach to be able to get to guys 4-5 inches taller and with considerable reach advantage shows good skills.

he was knocking out guys much taller and bigger who were boxing him and willingly not engaging as much. that shows some skill.

that would apply to power.

but shavers didn't have the greatest of chins.

shavers was prone to cuts.

shavers did not have the best stamina.

tua as you know has a top notch chin , very durable and had very good stamina.

Tua was a good contender but everytime he stepped up in class he lost, those guys are simply on another level and he'd be reduced to a punchers chance.

he didn't just struggle with byrd. byrd schooled him.

byrd was a slick , quick , southpaw. understandable.

think of all the guys that had big height and reach advantages over byrd that byrd gave trouble. now think about how byrd actually has the height and reach edge on tua.


tua got his ass whooped to ibeabuchi? really? that was an ass whooping?


rahman lost the 1st fight. controversy or not. early stoppage or not. he did.

2nd fight was a draw but rahman probably deserved it.
