    Tyson of the Brian Nielsen fight vs Tua of the Mauricio Villegas fight, 6 months prior to the Ruiz KO1. Who wins?

    Can Tua really give away so much weight against a guy coming straight at him?

    At the time Tua was 22 years old and 20-0, Tyson went on to fight Lennox Lewis.

    Can David Tua really give away 29 3/4 lb ??

    I reckon Tyson's modern fat (TM) wins this battle of the thick lads

    I don't see why you picked 210 for David Tua. Before he faced Mauricio Villegas he weighed 220 and the fight after he faced Villegas he weighed 229. So basically you are going to pick a low weight for Tua in 1995 and then compare than Tua vs Tyson in 2001 because he weighed more pounds? If anything the older fatter Tyson would of got beat easily because he was older and fat.

    Sheeeeei*undhytf!! Tyson and Tu a meet in the center of the ring and commence hooking. Tia laughs at Mike and puts him down with a brilliant 76 punch body then head combo. Tyson lays on the canvas and as the count reaches 7 crawls out of the ring crying.

    Yep, they do this things nowadays:

    Looks like a empirical method to prove that 40lb can be overcome without trouble. Seems this has been used before, but I´m not so advanced like those historians:

    Talking about this Tua:



    Villegas took a good punch, but didn´t manage to win any rounds.
    How would this go against Tyson? Could Tua manage to beat the weight disadvantage??

    Tua aged better than Tyson. Tyson wasn't really worth more than 1-3 rounds of power punches at the end of his career. Tua beats that Tyson for sure.

    I think Tyson was quite good against Brian, it was not his best version of himself but probably still good enough to whip Tua.

    Tua won't cover up like Nielsen did. He'd be winging em hooks and get caught more often than not. I don't know, I don't see Tua at all beating Tyson.

    Tyson didn't look too bad against Nielsen. He opened up and pounded away at that flab. Mike just happened to be at the heaviest of his career at that point. It was his first match after Golota and his only bout of 2001. You could tell his inactivity and maybe his less than stellar enthusiasm was starting to catch up with him.
