I wouldn't be surprised if a fight like that ended in similar fashion to the Lyle and Norton bouts...

Gerry had a much better chance vs Weaver for the resons you state and it may have been a needed confidence builder. Look what confidence did for fighters like Weaver after Holmes 1...Gerry had ***** but lacked confidence...people that know Gerry's history can understand why he did.
