Re: Mercer v.s Tyson 1996
A decent version of Tyson beats Mercer.
But its hard to pick the 1996 version of Tyson, just how good was he post prison?
i think the Holyfield fights stunted Tyson growth after prison, he needed more rounds IMO.
Had Tyson not fought (and lost) to Holyfield, maybe slowly he would ironed out his faults, got more fights under his belt and got more rounds in. He would never have been the force he once was, but im sure he could have improved much more than what we saw in 95-96.
Mercers not intelligent enough to beat Tyson. The question here is, how does Tysons stamina hold up?
I think Mercer/Mcall would have been perfect tune ups for Holyfield, much more than Bruce ****ing Seldon
