Default David Tua v Earnie Shavers

How do you see these two getting it on?

I think Tua wins by ko. Too quick and powerful plus he has the chin to trade.

I just watched tua v Ike and began thinking that Tua was better than I gave credit. Earnie is a 70s star known for power so I thought I'd compare the two.

Tua by stoppage is the most likely outcome. Frankly, best for best, if you gave them both iron chins and feather fists, a Tua win is still most likely, if they're both in top fitness (big if for Tua if you're leaving it to some randomised H2H thang). A top form Tua is just a better all around fighter than Shavers. Both good fighters with very uneven results that showed they had flaws too big or strengths too limited to be great. But Tua was a bit better technically and physically, I think.

I go with Tua, cause he showed he could beat some top heavyweights, Shavers almost always lost when he fought top guys. He also lost to guys like Stallings and Stander.

Tua has better punch resistance than Shavers, and is quicker and equally as powerful. Tua KO's Shavers.

Always go for chin and poise under fire in huge puncher duels.

Tua could survive Shavers, Shavers would not survive Tua, who hits harder than all the men who managed to concussively stop Earnie.

Tua by in the early round by TKO/KO, Shavers would most likely freeze up when getting a few shots through breaking his guard.
