Default Re: Could Wladimir Klitschko Do This To Tyson?

Prior to Buster Douglas Mike Tyson was outweighted only 12 times in his 37 fights.
Larry Holmes was lighter than Tyson in his prime so that brings it down to 11.
Reggie Gross was an ex lightheavy and probably above his optimum fighting weight.
Mike Jameson was 210 against Cobb around the middle of his career, again Tyson his best fighting weight was probably above that of Jameson.
That brings 12 down to 8. (Tyson was always in superb phyisical condition prior to Buster so I don't have to take into account his bodyfat)

Frank Bruno was probably the best big heavy Tyson fought, and was in no ways superior to Wlad.
If Bruno could go 5 rounds, Wlad can go much longer.
Bruno also made Tyson wobble, Wlad is a harder hitter than Bruno
