    Buster Douglas, McCall, Broad, and a close win over Norris. Bowe's resume is pretty limited outside of Holyfield, not counting things like the Golota and Mathis Jr. fights as resume builders.

    Hide is a better win that broad in my opinión.
    Tnt was getting schooled until buster heart dissapeared, and barely won against mccall in a close fight

    Tucker would win and lose close fights. It was his way.

    Holyfield trilogy>Douglas

    Outside of that, Hide, Donald, an aged Tubbs and Gonzales aren't far ahead of McCall, Broad, and Norris.

    And I think Bowe would win by a few points just by wanting it more.

    This is pretty much a 50/50 fight. With maybe a slight edge going to Bowe due to a better track record of winning close fights. It definitely goes the distance.

    Tucker gets overrated. Bowe by KO.

    Yeah, his career was better, but you're sort of polishing a turd outside of the Holyfield trilogy. Tubbs was about five years removed from his prime and Thomas and Dokes were shot. Biggs was also well past it and an establsihef loser. I don't rate Coetzer, Ferguson, or Cooper. Seldon wouldn't be rated for another four years

    The guys who Bowe beat who were on the Ring annual rankings leading in were Gonzales, Hide, and Holyfield.

    Douglas was number 7 Ring rated in 1986. Norris and Broad were each one loss removed from the ratings and McCall entered the ratings shortly after Tucker beat him.

    At his best Bowe,he might have been a great heavyweight ,the equal of Lewis , had he possessed the necessary dedication and focus.

    You are mentioning Tucker fights there where he was way past his best. Bowe never carried on that far down the line
    Prime v Prime this is 50 / 50
    Bowe was rougher and tougher .
    Tony T was a skilled operator with a great jab and good defence and Bowe was relatively easy to hit with a good jab.
    A faded Ty Biggs gave Bowe fits as did T Tubbs.
    I fancy Tucker on points
    The fight certainly goes the distance.
