Jerry's chin would neutralize Tyson's greater power to Floyd's. While Mike was bigger and more powerful than Patterson, he had nothing approaching the level of skill and experience Floyd brought to his matches with Quarry. Unlike Frazier, Tyson was a fast starter who faded a bit as a fight progressed. Mike would not wear Jerry down as Frazier could. Interesting pairing.
There is always one in every Tyson thread.

Tyson's speed would be difficult for Jerry to handle, and though I don't see Tyson putting Jerry down, Mike would win by a cut stoppage iin the ninth over Quarry.

I've always liked Jerry Quarry and in truth he overcame some pretty incredible odds. But this is one hurdle he wouldn't jump. Tyson's handspeed, fast combinations and lethal power would make this a short night. As much respect as I have for the Irish Bell Flower, I'm not sure that he even makes it out of the first.

Quarry better than even, he took Shavers power and koed Shavers, it would be similar vs Tyson

No matter what you think would happen, you'd have to admit that at least one of us has had his account name go wrong.

Tyson KO1

Quarry was easy to hit. Tyson too quick out of the gate.

Tyson would win by tko stoppage on cuts..but one thing you gotta give Jerry, he wouldn't have been intimidated at all by Tyson.

Shavers never hit Quarry clean. Tyson wouldn't have that problem.

I don't. He wasn't really a power hitter, but managed to hurt his opposition by countering as they came in. Tyson's upper body movement, angles and superior speed would prevent a lot of that from happening. He also had good combination ability, handspeed, power and a chin that survived the artilary of Bonecrusher smith, Frank Bruno and Razor Ruddock. Quarry was also a cruiserweight if truth be told. I love Jerry Quarry, but this is about the best example of a mismatch as one can come up with.

Tyson bombs out Quarry within the first few founds.

Yes, of course.

Quarry was a b-fighter in an era of over-rated, underfed, string bean heavies. His head would be found in the 5th row.

Yeah, Ron Lyle was a poster boy for malnutrition :

In a better era he could have looked like Tony Tubbs though.
