Re: Could Tyrell Biggs been a good pro?
He was a tightrope act for sure but there was a window of opportunity when he turned pro in that division. All you really had was Tyson and it took a few years for Ruddock to show up on the radar screen. Everyone else was either established or old.
But that window would've closed with the 1988 crop and Tyrell is just not going to hold up against those guys. I wanted to see him and Mercer go at it, but Mason took care of that. But he'd land on Mercer--who didn't? But the second half of the fight would have been rough.
Carl Williams and Bruno were 2 others from the timeframe but there really was a shortage of top 10 matches during that Tyson run. It seems like everyone was holding out for the big Tyson payday from 87 or so to Buster & just sat on the sidelines. That window was as good as it was going to get for Tyrell.
