I give the edge to Tony Tucker, assuming both fought their best. Tucker had much more seasoning and success against top flight opponents than Briggs did.

Briggs never reached his full potential. He was rushed into a title match against Tyson before he was ready. He took a beating and that broke his enthusiasm for boxing permanently. This is an example terrible management.

It would be a close one, but Tony would just edge Tyrell. He went the distance with Tyson, held his own against Norris, Seldon, and Lewis, and beat Douglas, Young, and Lopez. Biggs, lost to Bowe and Lewis, got beaten by Tyson, Damiani, and beat Tillis, Sims, and Bey. He never got over his drug addiction, and suffered for it.

If Biggs could pull together the stamina to go 12, he should win a decision.

I don't think Tyrell Biggs people would've actually did that fight with Tony Tucker no more than Butch Lewis wanted his man Michael Spinks being in the same ring with Tucker, even though that had more to do with the fact that Spinks-Tucker was more of a financially high risk-low reward type of fight which would've threatened the lucrative prospect of Spinks-Gerry Cooney a fight which they were holding out for.

In the event that Biggs fought Tucker in a 15-round fight I'd go with Tucker by decision, even though Biggs would have his moments up till the 9th or 10th round before he'd start to fade. And keep in mind that when Tucker was fighting Buster Douglas in 87' it was Buster who was getting the better of Tucker before gassing out around the 9th frame and getting broke down and tko'd in the 10th round of there fight.

The Douglas fight was roughly even until the last couple rounds.

An example of terrible management would have been to let him coke up his career and lose to a nobody and never get a title shot or a big payday. They saw he was a lost cause and at least let him make some money before he crashed and burned.

I like tucker here for me he was all round the better fighter could keep distance and box or dig deep when needed . Perhaps Biggs has the early lead but after seven rounds it's pretty even or tucker is a shade ahead . Either way I see tucker finishing the stronger and winning by a 3 to 5 point margin or maybe even winning by late stoppage
