    Prime for prime, who takes this fight. I personally think this fight would have been explosive. It sure would have the potential anyway.:bbb

    The best Buster I've seen VS the best Morrison I've seen would be Buster all the way for me. But I've only seen that Buster the one time. If it's any other Buster, you pick 'em fight to me.

    Morrison is in a lot of trouble here.

    Buster also looked good against Mike Williams,Tony Tucker(before he quit) and Quinn Navarre in his comeback.

    This could ugly Buster at his best would beat the daylights out of Tommy dropping him a few times before finishing him off. Buster ko 6.

    Although Tommy at his best kos Buster at his worst, one thing though is you have to give the Duke a punchers chance, Busters chin wasnt too hot.

    It wasn't...which is why him getting up during the Tyson fight was shocking. The uppercut should've laid him out cold.

    That was a great shot, i never said his chan was bad i said it wasnt too hot, more like average i think resolve and how hard he trained is what lifted him of the canvas.Ive seen him hurt against Tucker a few times and stopped him . I also saw Louis Monaco knock him cold. Oh yeah and Savarese too.

    I would take Buster at his best to stop Morrison.
     
  8. Lol he winner face golota.

    Actually I think this would be a good fight and I'd be backing Morrison if the best Douglas didn't make an appearance.

    Graphic mismatch. Douglas would stop him mid rounds. Of course with Buster anything could happen but I'm thinking about the superb heavy who ko'd Tyson.

    Any decent version of Douglas would beat Morrison.

    Douglas too good from the outside. He would land before Morrison could.

    Buster KO's him in the first half, he's a far superior fighter and will outpoint him with his skillful use of (almost) 84" reach and use his good lateral movement.
    I think Morrison's puncher's chance is very little against Tokyo Douglas, as if he could get up from that uppercut from hell by Tyson, I'd be confident he'd get up if floored here.

    Carl " the truth " Williams had a lot of similarities to James Douglas, both in size and in boxing style. A totally ringworn and past prime Williams had Morrison decked on two occasions, and keep in mind, Williams was very susceptible to getting tagged with left hooks - something that Douglas wasn't as much... That said, I have to give a prime Douglas the advantage... Morrison was as dangerous as anyone in the early rounds, and if he cought James soon enough, might end it, but asside from that, he's out of his league..
