I think I'd favour Tubbs in this one. So long as it was the real good Tubbs, who was a bit infrequent.

Out-of-shape versus, I'd be going for Sanders.

Tubbs actually had stamina when he was out-of-shape, whereas Sanders had none.

Watch how ridiculously quickly he gasses against Vitali.

The only thing I was doing was making the distinction between Sanders being a south paw and Tyson being a right hander.. I am well aware of the damage Tyson can do with the left hook.. Wasn't it I who mentioned it in the first place?

As for Sanders and Tubbs, I don't think its clear cut either way. Tubbs might have decisioned him or worn him down late, but he could also be susceptible to getting KO'd early. For all his limitations, Sanders was a huge hitter with fast hands, great left hook and quick starting ability.. Tubbs was the better fighter, but not by as wide of a margin as you think.

Much as I disliked Tubbs for his mass snooze-inducing style, unless Sanders gets lucky, the Yank will get the nod when the final bell is rung. Tubbs was too much defensively for the Afrikanner.

I agree that Sanders had limited stamina..And perhaps Tubbs had less tendency to gas even when deconditioned. But the VK fight is a bad example. Corrie was 38 years old and off for 13 months, facing a much larger opponent who forced him to work harder than usual, and that's what you're using as a berometer?

It was appropriate for me to use that old version of Sanders, because it's the youngest fat, out-of-shape version, who didn't win by a stoppage in the first 2 rounds. Notice i was talking about stamina in reference to DamonD, who mentioned an "out-of-shape versus".

Okay fair enough.. Tubbs would probably be favored by most, and in fact is the better fighter, but Sanders could also prove dangerous early, especially if they are both out of shape and Tony is not as mobile as usual.

The only way for me to say for sure, is if I fought both of them, and that never happened nor ever will. Judging by the types of guys that fought and who they stopped, I'd say its reasonable to say that they were close.. Sanders may not have a stellar resume, but some of those journeyman and fringe types were not easy to put away, and he dusted a fair number of them early.. Spoon had a similar track record. I don't really know, but I do think that because of his greater handspeed than Spoon, left hook and style, he might have been a more dangerous early round proposition for Tubbs, wheras Spoon was more of a problem late.

Tubbs wins it 8 or 9 times out of ten, the other two times he gets caught early. As inconsistent as Tony was, he was moe consistent than Sanders. He'd box the Freddie Mercury moustache right off his face.

Sanders was a canny good GOLFER - BUT as a boxer he a bum who got lucky, since WALDO has a fragile glass-jaw.

Probably Tubbs jabs him to death, although I could see Corrie coming out with the fast hands and just wacking him out early.

Sanders had much more dangerous power and faster hands than Witherspoon both men were not always in the best condition to say the least.
