    Tua takes out Esch in less than a round. This is not even a fight.

    Tua would look like Mayweather compared to Butterbean. He actually beat some contenders, has skill, and proved his worth against the best in the world. Butterbean spent 99% of his career in tough man competitions and knocking over tomato cans.

    This contest would be the mismatch to end all mismatches.

    If Tua can ko Ruiz and Moorer in 30 seconds imagine how long Butterbean would last.

    What do the HW fantasy fight rankings look like. I don't think there is an undisputed. Maybe Ike Ibeabuchi or Ali? Vitali?

    Common.. David Tua was a true contender. Eric Esch was a novelty. This is a mismatch

    That’s an excellent thought - ATG Fantasy Rankings statistically sourced and generated from most popular picks in fantasy fights.

    Mikey T gets mucho credit and “wins” in the fantasy realm - maybe he’s # 1? In the fantasy world, real life “woulda, shoulda, coulda” scenarios easily convert to “actually didda”.

    And the actual, real life “diddas” ironically see themselves more easily vanquished in The Land of Make Believe. Crazy, ain’t it?
