Default Re: Riddick Bowe vs Vitali Klitschko

I recently watched that fight on YouTube. To me it didn't seem like Douglas gassed, but Tucker simply caught him with a very good combination that made his body say "**** this, i'm out of here", even if he was still standing. For instance, in the beginning of the round when he suddenly deteriorated, he was still pretty quick with the jab and defensive reflexes. He didn't look like he was staggering around the ring from tiredness, to me.

It seems to me that the "Douglas running out of gas" has become urban legend over the decades since, but in my opinion, Tucker genuinely TKO'd him (as much as i like Douglas to win).
