Re: Mercer v.s Tyson 1996
the problem with post prison tyson (as someone else pointed out on here) was that like tua he needed to reset at times after taking a jab. he couldnt dodge them like he could in his youth and it almost hit a reset button in his ****ing head.
the problem with mercer is barring the lewis fight, i rarely saw him throw that AWESOME ramrod jab consistently. if it's the best mercer ever/better than we ever saw, he could keep tyson back and win on points
the REAL mercer...lazy, inconsistent, and devolved into a gritty brawler. a sloppy slugfest, a one punch at a time tyson takes this by UD
