I agree. Douglas would not have beaten Tyson in 1987.. Douglas quits against Tucker and later is stopped by Evander in 3. Mike would stop him 1-3 , and my guess in round 2. I don't even see it as a tough fight. By 1990 Mike is not moving his head so when he steps in he is hit with that nice Douglas right, which would not have hit him in 1987. So everytime he tries to step in he is hit, and that slows him down, and a slowed down Mike is vulnerable and he gets hit more. The whole style of Tyson is energy and speed and defense. Take it away and he is very ordinary and open with still that power, which knocked down Douglas in round 8. .
