Stop with the Hopkins non sense. Tunney was well capable of exploiting Tysons mental health issues. Tillis, Tucker, and Douglas did it with movement and their skills. Neither were close to being the mechanic that Tunney was. Tunney was also an excellent strategist and much stronger physically then being given credit for, and certainly far stronger then Tyson had demonstrated in the mind. Tunney may not win, but this bout would be far more competitive then people may think.
