    Does Tucker win every round over the smaller but harder puncher?
    Or does the threat of Tua s power put his opponent on the back foot, in a negative way?
    Tua who kod Ruiz, verses Tucker who beat Douglas?

    Tucker UD. Tony is too skilled and mobile for Tua.

    Tucker was promoted by DKP. How many times did his guys get the short end of a stick when it came time for scoring? And Duva sure is familiar with that stuff and this would be another===lots of controversy but it is Don's guy getting his hand raised at the end. Everyone else likes the Tuaman like 8-3-1 type scoring. but the 3 judges that count have it for Tucker.

    Tua is not going to KO Tony... too mobile... strong chin.. has decent power.. too many lesser fighters outboxed Tua for long periods of their bouts with him before gettting knocked out but I think Tucker can take it

    Tua can't out box Tucker. I don't think he stops him, which is the only way he can win. So Tucker UD it is.

    The Tyson fight Tucker, gets a decision. The Lewis fight Tucker loses wildly to Tua.
    The Seldon fight Tucker gets kod in 5.

    Tucker was very tall, and fought tall. Tua didnt have the arsenal to catch up to him at his best. I think Tucker outboxes him, but the young determined Tua always has a chance.
