Default Heavyweight Tourney:Rd 3: Bonus: Wladimir Klitschko .Vs. Gene Tunney

Due to injury suffered in the Klitschko bout(broken jaw) John L. Sullivan will not be able to continue in the Tournament. Two fighters from round 3 will compete in a bonus match. To determine the last entrant into the final four. Wladimir Klitschko versus Gene Tunney. 15 Rounds.

Too much controversy surrounding Sullivans true abilities. Too difficult to guage against modern fighteers. In the interest of fairness. We will continue with Klitschko versus Tunney. Which is a very good bout. 15 Rounds.

I like Klitschko by a 7th round knockout. VK is very cautious in all his fights but Tunney does not have the size or punching power to get his attention. Similar to the second Chris Byrd fight is how I see this one ending.

Tunney has the skills to keep Wladimir reaching, early on. but in the end Klitschko has too many tools. Tunney's lack of power is key, as he would not be able to keep Klitschko at bay.

Wlad's weakness won't be threatened. Pressure, panic attacks, and a bad chin won't be exposed with Tunney's style. Yes Tunney could slice and dice, but with the physical advantages in height and reach he is about against too tough a task. He's game and tough so he'll survive, but get out-boxed and out-hit. He just can't overcome it. Tunney may steal a round or two, but Wlad takes the fight very comfortable. Due to pride and smarts, Tunney finishes on his feet at the bell. Tunney also wins 3 of the last 5 rounds due to much superior stamina. Wlad workrate and punch-output dramatically decline from round 10 onwards but his power, control, and jab keep him competitive and keeping charge. But his energy, clearly isn't the same. Wlad 11-4 UD. Tunney gets dropped once, and doesn't win a round till the later rounds. Tunney takes a great deal of punishment, and looks bad and uncomfortable for most of the fight. In the post fight interview, Wlad congratulates Tunney on being such a great legend and fighter. Tunney smirks at Wlad, shakes his hand honorably and offers a dose of Shakespearean-esq philosophy in response to the outcome of the fight.

Tunney’s efficient style against Greb shows that he wasn’t a pure boxer, but a puncher as well. Of course he’d bulk up a bit for this matchup, but still he’d be agile and quick enough to counter or slip Wlad’s punches. I see Tunney cornering Wlad, going for an early KO, because he knows that Wlad’s got a shaky chin. Tunney, throwing quick body-head-combos, flooring Wlad in the first round, and another two or three times in the second until the ref jumps in and stops the slaughtering.
