The best defensive fighter of all time doesn't get dropped by middleweight Ketchal.

You sure?

You ready to throw out his quality of the back of a fixed fight where Ketchel tried to reneg? He certainly wasn't expecting to get hit with that shot, or any hard shot.

Not to worry Mcgrain.

After reading about Johnson taking the title from a 5'7" 168 pound fighter, I have absolutely no qualms about him beating a guy who was a true heavyweight who was never KO'd in some 40+ fights and hit like a truck.

How silly of me to dare make such a ridiculous assumption

What, if anything, do you think that Johnson did well?

Johnson by a wide decision, possibly a shut-out.

johnson has no chance in knocking out david tua.

tua's chin would be too hard. and would absorb any punch thrown by johnson

Tua KO

Tua would win one but out of three or five I'd pick Johnson. He'd be wary of anything he throws, he'll put a shot in here or there and he'll tie him en route to a UD.

Tua's got too much power and chin for this matchup, as well as being the shorter man- which is an advantage when your opponent tries to throw you from a clinch. I'd pick Tua to KO Johnson, but Johnson would have a strong chance at outlasting him if he could drag the fight out.
