Default Re: Could Wladimir Klitschko Do This To Tyson?

If Wlad fought the way Holyfield did he'd get KO'ed quickly even against 90's Tyson. But if he fought his fight against 90's Tyson I think he would ride out some rough patches to win on points. He fights too cautiously against punchers to ever push for the KO, so if he wins, it's on points.

But prime Tyson would KO Wlad, too elusive, too fast and speed always kills the jab and grab style. Jones Jr vs Ruiz, Mayweather vs Hatton, Reid vs Ottke are all good examples of this. You have to get off first with the jab and grab, if you don't you just end up getting hit first and then clinching and then repeat until you get KO'ed or outpointed.
