Default Re: Tony Tucker on Tyson.

How did he expose him?

Tyson clearly won and even out jabbed him at certain parts of the fight ... but it did show that Mike was vulnerable to the uppercut. Had it been a completely healthy Tucker, it would've been closer but I think Mike would still edge it out.

Tucker was a very good heavyweight and clearly the second best after Tyson. He had power, athleticism, an excellent chin, footwork etc. Sad that his career didn't work out the way it should have.

He would make Wlad or Vitali look foolish ... He even gave Lewis some trouble despite being out of boxing for 3 years.

Tucker and Tillis were the only 2 guys to genuinely give Mike some problems. This is one of the reasons why I think that prime Ali would have the best shot against Mike, if he was cautious of the left hook. But Ali didn't really have a proven uppercut
