Good point On second thought, McCline is the best.

Hell, Tucker even gave Lennox Lewis a good fight when he was past his prime.

Tony "TNT" Tucker, in his prime, would have been a tough fight for anyone. I believe he had drug issues, but when he was on his game, he could have been competitive with anybody from any era. He was a pleasure to watch box.
Glad it's not only me that remembers him this fondly. Nicely put.

Yeah, it would really really depend on which Ruddock showed up.

I think Ruddock beats him to be honest. Any time prior to the Morrison fight, I'd make Ruddock favourite. People say he was done after the tyson fights, but really, although Lewis smashed him, Lewis is pretty ****ing good.


Hell, Tommy Morrison against Sam Peter would be interesting too!!!

He didn't truly distinguish himself before Tyson, only main name he had beaten was James Broad, and the Jimmy Young he had beaten was washed up.
