Default Re: Could Tyrell Biggs been a good pro?

Tyrell Biggs had good skills. 6'5" with an 80" reach and 225-230 Lbs.

He won an amateur World Title at SHW in 1982. He won a Gold Medal in the '84 Olympics at SHW. He beat Lennox Lewis, Francisco Damiani, and others as an amateur.

He was 15-0 (10) going into the fight with Tyson. He had beaten Tillis W8, Snipes W10, and Bey KO6 among others. He was not ready for Tyson plain and simple... and he never got back on track again. He was stopped in 7 by Tyson.

After the Tyson fight he was stopped in 5 by Damiani who he had defeated several times as an amateur. In his next fight he was stopped in 7 by Gary Mason.

He did beat Ocasio W10 and R. Marin W10 before taking on an undefeated Bowe. He gave Bowe a few fits before being stopped in 8. In his next fight he was totally dominated and stopped in 3 by Lewis.

He went on to lose to Hunter, Tubbs, Mathis, Anis (KO3), and Donald (KO2) before retiring at 30-10 (20).

He probably could have done a little better, but I doubt he could have done much better.
