    im not talking about ruddock who was past it when he fought lewis or way past it when he fought morrison ....im talking about the ruddock who fought smith /dokes /tyson 2x (i consider his prime )vs david tua who fought oleg maskuev/david izon and ike ibeabuchi (which i consider tuas prime) ..........who wins ? that ruddock that showed up for the 2nd tyson fight looked huge and was throwing sum serious leather to tysons body and nailed him with sum sledge hammers and tua isnt as elusive as tyson ..........SO HOW DOES THIS ONE GO ?

    Man, it's a tough one. I'm leaning towards the bigger, more athletic Ruddock, but he was quite hittable, so a solid case for Tua can be made.

    It would be kind of like Tua-Rahman, either fight.

    Tua scores come-from-behind KO like he often did. Tua KO 9-12

    Tua UD. Too big of a workrate.

    Maybe, but he certainly doesn't hit as hard as Tua. Telegraphed punches like Ruddock's only serve one purpose. To impress the casual boxing fan on film.
