Default Those who say Tyson never faced a real challenger during his prime how about Tucker?

Tony Tucker IBF champ, this was a hard knock-down drag-out fight that Tyson prevailed

Tucker was the better 80'guy then most. Had kept up with Lewis as well in the 90's. Spinks avoided him and he defeated Buster. Holmes would have had trouble to win or lose.Tyson was untouchable then ,only flaw was laziness in a clinch.

- -Bonecrusher clinched him all night yet could otherwise do nothing to Tyson save the last rd sucker punch.

Is it a flaw to look to the ref while being clinched by such a massive guy with nothing else going on?

Bonesy shoulda been DQed, but that's death on tv and the gaming biz, so they allowed the farce to the end.

Tucker, Biggs, Thomas, Tubbs, were all legit HWs during that era. Because Tyson made easy work of them should not tarnish them as fighters. Biggs was an Olympic gold medalist, beat Lewis in the '84 Olympics. Tyson often gave up a substantial height advantage over these HWs.

Tucker didn't really fight. He was scared and was in there trying not to get KTFO.

Tyson didn't help his cause by predictably lunging in and being easily tied up.

''Hit him back !''

Or hug up on him

Maybe he would have been more aggressive in a pillow fight

Curtis! Curtis! Tucker fought well, he mixed it up made sure he did not get clocked inside and hit with some good punches in combo. Tucker was a heckofa fighter and he fought well. Tyson was trying to get under him for an uppercut inside.

Tyson was not going to give Tony the room to use his reach and Tucker did not have a big enough punch to put Tyson on his heels... thats life lol.
