Yeah and what are holmes wins that makes him a level above tyson. Tysons title run was much better, he fought the better fighters, he didnt fight a randell tex cobb.

Cooney, Berbick (prime), Witherspoon, Weaver, Shavers, Spinks, and Snipes. Tyson fought a lot of the guys that were in their primes in Larry's era, and Tyson got to them when the weren't training properly and all screwed up from drugs. What is wrong with Tex Cobb? He wasn't that bad. IMO he is underrated. Losing by a splite decision to Dokes X2, Norton, and Douglas. Beating Earnie Shavers and Leon Spinks.

He was also even more ****ed up in the head then when he fought Larry, and he was noticably slower.

He had 20 fights going in against Larry, and had beaten John Tate. Against Tyson Berbick's head was even more screwed up than from when he fought Larry, and Thomas was screwed up from drugs by the time Berbick and Tyson got to him.

I know what Larry looks like. He's still in pretty good shape.

You know, some people are ugly before a fight too, not just after.
