Jerry's chin would neutralize Tyson's greater power to Floyd's. While Mike was bigger and more powerful than Patterson, he had nothing approaching the level of skill and experience Floyd brought to his matches with Quarry. Unlike Frazier, Tyson was a fast starter who faded a bit as a fight progressed. Mike would not wear Jerry down as Frazier could. Interesting pairing.
There is always one in every Tyson thread.
