    I will admit it. Although I think Berbick was a better fighter and a tougher guy, he was far more inconsistent and could lose to all levels of competition, so I wouldn't be too faithful to Berbick. However, I might still favor him slightly just because he could thrive in a brawl. Bruno was a god-awful survivor. Berbick could at least lose a good brawl and still make the distance. Either way, this ends in a knockout. If it's Berbick, it likely takes to the middle rounds for Berbick's thudding blows to take effect. If it's Bruno, it's probably a round or two sooner. This would probably be one of those comically exciting fights.

    Do you think Berbick could go the distance with Spoon, Lewis and Smith? Both Bruno and Berbick fought Tyson and Berbick got blown out quicker

    This would be an extremely good matchup.

    Spoon-yes
    Lewis-most likely not
    Smith-it is not a question of Berbick going the distance with Smith, but Smith going the distance with Berbick
