Yep. No-one is beating Tyson without some very good defensive skills or the ability to KO him first. Bowe had neither the power nor the defensive skills either to outslug Tyson or outbox him.

Bowe would get in some nasty licks and probably wobble Tyson a few times, because his offensive skill was very good save the lack of a good straight right, but Bowe take too much punishment. Since this is the early 1990s Tyson, Bowe could have quite a few good moments before this happens.
