    Someone stated that Bowe was the best heavyweight in the world by the end of 1990, but I feel it could have been a few others at that time, Holyfield and Lewis stand out, Bowe`s best win that year was v Bert Cooper but Lewis beat Mason in `91, which was the better win, Mason or Cooper, and who would have won if Mason and Cooper met around that period?

    Mason. No way Cooper can give Lewis the fight Garry did.

    Mason. Look what he did to a huge talent in Tyrell Biggs.

    You´ve seen the bout? After a couple of rounds Biggs broke apart/gassed like crap. Bizarre. Mason looked like wearing concrete shoes....

    Against a guy coming at him, a like Mason too in that one.

      April 1990 annual ring ratings, Biggs was not in the top 10 when Mason beat him.

    But to be honest, Biggs was damaged by then. He had nothing left. He managed to win a few rounds against Mason, I will say that. But Gary could be slow at times.
    Tyson ruined him.

    You have your dates wrong you troll.

    Mason fought Biggs in the 80s. His only loss was to an absolute peak Tyson. He’d beaten Lennox etc and was a mega talent

    Biggs was done. Look at what Lewis did to him too.

    He was coming off a loss to Damiani when he faced Mason and only beat Lewis in the amatuers, Lewis only weighed around 200lbs in the amateurs and easily beat Biggs in the pros.

    He had been inactive after Tyson beat him and Diamani had just beat Biggs.

    It looked like Biggs pretended to be knocked out.
