Fair enough, that's understandable I suppose. Thomas was a better pro fighter than Biggs, that's unquestionable- however Tyson's performance vs Biggs performance was quite simply a blistering, dominating blitz. A heavy body attack round-after-round, broke Biggs: followed by that spectacular first knockdown, then KO.

His performance vs Thomas didn't impress me quite that much. Thomas was definitely aging and past his best, despite that Mike certainly didn't have it his own way. I only had him a couple of points up by the time of stoppage (6th). Credit where it's due Pinklon boxed smartly behind the jab and was well in the contest- before that cracking left hook shook him and barrage of unanswered punches finished matters with stunning and brutal abruptness.
