nah, i gotta say mercer had the better chin. went against better punchers. also mercer lasted the lewis fight, oliver was on his way to bein KO and he knew it, so he cried his way outta the fight....
.....also mercer was a brawler who had a head first defence, where oliver could box a bit and wasnt there to be hit as often or as cleanly.
anyways i see mercer outhustling his way to a win, but if mercer is lazy oliver very well could pull off the W.
