But what about a guy who stands in front of him and is still elusive? How do you think he would do against any one of these guys or a similair fighter? I mean they wouldn't be running, so you would perhaps bet on him, but there is something there that needs to be unpicked.

Could Tiger unpick a fighter like that?
Think he might be too strong for Leonard at 160,Tiger was vulnerable to smart boxer puncher types like Giardello,we might be surprised by the amount of lesser considered Middle weight champs that could eke out a decision over Richard Ihetu.Guys like Johnny Wilson,Fred Apostoli,Jeff Smith.Just a thought.
