    Rahman.

    For those not aware, a lot of Morrison's ability came from PEDS. Conversely, he chronically underperformed due to his addiction to recreational drugs and alcohol. Say what you will about the Rock's limitations, but if the rules are well kept, I can't see Rahman losing to a man like that.

    interesting bump, probably two of the worst guys to try and pick in fantasy fights

    I think I would favor Rahman

    Rahman ****s him up with the jab and stops him, but probably gets rocked once or twice.

    Rahman lost to Ruiz for christ sakes. He lost to Maskaev not once but twice. I think Morrison beats all 3 of them but he was a Glass Jawed fighter but so were Rahman and Maskaev.

    He knocked out Corrie Sanders and Lennox Lewis within 12 months for Christ's sake.

    Morrison lost to Michael Bent for Christ sakes, who probably already had pre-existing brain damage from the amateurs. There is no scenario, none whatsoever, ih which Rahman loses to betn.

    And I guess you didn't read the part where I talked about Tommy's PED use. We don't know if he was good enough to beat ANY of those fighters without them. We just don't know.

    I'd say Rahman's chin is definitely better. He handled punches from Corrie Sanders, David Tua(sure, he lost the first fight but went the full distance in the rematch), Lennox Lewis(first fight), and others. Morrison's only serious test in this category is ancient George Foreman. Everyone else with a serious punch clogged him on spot. With that said, I'd pick Rahman by TKO in round 8.
