    Beterbiev by ko. Kind of sad we never saw Artur in his prime.

    I think Tarver would at least last the distance

    I don't know. He never fought a puncher as big as Beterbiev.

    Tarver has an iron chin, never been knocked out in his career and fought ranked Cruiserweights and Heavyweights, hard to envision Beterbiev stopping him. Interesting fight, Beterbiev is there to be outboxed and gets hit a lot, he wins all of his fights due to brute power and attrition. Tarver was extremely inconsistent in his prime though, I can see him getting outworked in a potential fight but winning the rematch, Tarver always does better in rematches.

    Only question is if Beterbiev can put the lights out of the durable Tarver or not. With accumulation I think he could.

    Mate he took punches from the legendary Danny Green I am sure he would handle Beterbievs

    And lit up the great Danny Santiago. Lifting his profile immensely in the States.

    Wow another shocking poll result.

    Does any ATG in history stand a chance vs an Eastern European

    Tarver beat a prime Roy Jones. Bertebiev has beat... Erm... Yarde

    Let me put it another way for you.

    Tarver best win was an incumbent world heavyweight champion Roy Jones who had zero real losses and was P4P #1

    Bertebievs best win was Yarde coming off being ktfo by 40 year old alcoholic Kovalev.

    You realize you discredit yourself when you can't be honest about the fighter you are trying to downplay right?
