Default Bert Cooper vs Dwight Mohammad Qawi

I think Bert Cooper and Dwight Mohammad Qawi would have been a good fight. They were both cruiserweights in the late 80's. They were similar in styles and both threw heavy shots and at their best both gave Evander Holyfield a tough fight

Let's discuss

I think Dwight would have won a decision, based on a better defense. Burt would have made him work for it.

Great match-up. Cooper was bigger and hit pretty hard. Qawi was more skillful and reliable and I think would've earned a decision...whether the judges would have given it to him is a different story.

Qawi, he was more disciplined, better conditioned, skillful, and had more dog in him


Cooper was inconsistent, and not the sharpest tool in the shed


If Cooper shows up and is really trying to win, Qawi wins a decision..

If Cooper shows up just for drug money, and a i don't give a f@ck attitude, Qawi stops him late..

Qawi would have beat him like he did Leon Spinks...grinning and enjoying his work like a sadist.

You know what? I don't think I've seen this one on the forum yet. Which is kind of a small miracle, because I'd be extremely curious what would happen. It has all the ingredients to be a potential classic between just the right kind of great at just the right kind of size and style risk with a fighter who was sometimes very, very good. It's easy to favour the great fighter over the sometimes very good fighter. But I can see this playing out all wrong for him too, with the range it would probably be in, the power and inside fighting ****nal of Cooper, it's very much a wild card. But only with Cooper showing up when he was at his sharpest. Then, there's really no telling, from my perspective.

I like Bert Cooper ... big punch, always in with a chance. Dunno if he'd beat Qawi but he'd make a good fight of it.
