I can't use witherspoon's loss to Smith a gauge for much of anything. That fight reeked of a dive and the more I read or hear about it, the more I'm inclined to believing such. Furthermore, I don't buy into the concept that if fighter A beats fighter B and B goes onto beating C, then A most definitely beat C as well. Boxing doesn't work that way. In either case, I agree that Tyson should be favored over Witherspoon, but not for the same reasons you're going by.
