Tunney can't get away or keep out of reach. Williams KO7
I'm glad to see a viewpoint favoring Williams show up on this thread.

When I posted this topic I thought Tunney would probably win on points but that this was a fight that had danger signs written all over it.

As pointed out above, Williams brings some real physical attributes to the table.

I can definitely see Big Cat getting outboxed early but then start developing real confidence along with amped up aggression as he realizes he is the stronger and more athletic fighter.

I can see him getting to Tunney and then overwhelming him.

Wouldn't bet much either way on this one.
