Sonny Liston. I'm aware how good a chin Ike showed against Tua, but people tend to forget Tua was never a real champion.

Perhaps if Ike had continued...as is, no. I'd say Liston stops him on a late TKO.

I don't think Ike was the kind of fighter who got intimaded but that wouldn't matter. Sonny would outbox him and get a decision win.

I don't know much about Ibeabuchi, but evidently he survived the power of Tua over 12 rounds, and overcame the quick slick boxing tactics of a prime Chris Byrd. Although, Sonny had a ferocious punch and tremendous jab, I'm not so sure that he'd have any surprises for this apparent mad man.

Sonny would outbox Ike over 12 rounds and win a comfortable and exciting decision.

Liston would win every round. Stops him in a 15 also.

Folks here will have to excuse my bluntness, but how does every ****in' subject on this forum manage to turn into a discussion about Tyson?

I think when people aren't sure about an outcome they tend to cling to things they know. And Liston has a more proven track record than Ibeabuchi does. Having said that, anyone who can beat a prime Tua and a prime Byrd has to be considered dangerous and he certainly has a chance to win. Too bad we didn't get to see more of him.

You got it all wrong pal. NO WAY is Tua's power overrated. Go watch the Tua vs Ruiz KO or the Tua vs Moorer KO - look at the opponents within SECONDS - that is the DEFINITION of power.

Power = work / time. Tua did two full night's work within seconds! Lewis has an underrated chin.
