Finally, we are not just talking here about a perfect Joe Frazier hook but (hypotheticaly) the additional pressure per square inch generated by Tyson coming back into the blow full speed.
All in all i'm pretty happy with my surmise - horrible.
How can you use the Tyson that fought Lewis as an example? Do you think Lewis would have hit Tyson that cleanly in 88?
