Tend to agree with this. Bowe was an excellent fighter albeit for a short period of time. Bowe was really good around this time and Tyson had some serious defensive lapses. I could see Bowe nailing Tyson with an uppercut similar to what Douglas hit him with but I think this would be an excellent fight. Tyson at his peak takes Bowe apart, but then again I think Tyson at his best is a handful for any fighter in history. I would find it hard to bet against him.
