Re: could a prime tim witherspoon beat a prime ray mercer?
'Spoon was faster, more mobile, and a better athlete than Mercer at their best. Tim gave an overtrained Holmes life and death, while Ray was tumbled from the unbeaten ranks by an old fat lazy version of Larry.
Prime Ray was too tough for 'Spoon to take out, but not good enough to win a decision.
