    Douglas for sure.

    Here he was against one of the best two fisted punchers for ten rounds, fearlessly duking it out and making Mike back off

    When have we ever seen Norton do the same?

    Once I heard Buster weighed in at 145 for Holyfield, I knew he was going to lose

    Both fighter have visited the canvas but James Buster Douglas took shots from Mike Tyson in their Feb 11 1990 title bout, he was decked in round 8 by Tyson but Douglas showed heart and perseverance in rising to stop Tyson in round 10. Ken Norton has had a history of not faring well against heavy hitters in his prime, Being stopped by Jose Luis Garcia in 1970 and against George Foreman in 1974 are prime examples. Douglas has the better chin.
