If Dela Hoya vs Sturm was a tune up then it seriously went wrong.

In my opinion he lost that fight and he knows it.

Speaking of Benvenuti; how about that "easy" tune up fight he had two months before his return with Monzon... where he was shockingly outpointed by Jose Roberto Chirino?

I am surprised no one has mentioned Tyson against Douglas.

Tyson was keeping busy leading up the big one against Holyfield.

I always thought that Vitali gave Lennox way more than he expected!

Plus I feel if Lennox would have handled Vitali easily he would have carried on with his career. Emanuel Steward most likely told him he best hang it up!

Prime Hagler had his hands very very full vs Marcus Geraldo.

Even though it technically wasn't a tune-up fight, Greg Page lost more than his undefeated record when he lost to Trevor Berbick.
