    Can Rahman do to Tate what Weaver did? Yes but I don't think he will. Tate ud. Thoughts?

    Tate does a steady beatdown on Rahman.

    Agreed. An on point Tate controls Rahman to a strong UD, possible late round stoppage.

    No, Weaver was more explosive and less predictable. Rahman is as basic as they come, he won't be able to catch Tate with his best shot

    Tate was a better boxer but I don’t trust his chin or his ability to avoid disaster. I’m going with Rahman by a KO.

    Rahman ko, slightly down on the cards. Tate wasn't used to fighting 240 pounders with 84 inch reach. Rahman was bad against guys who were completely dirty like Ruiz and Holyfield, but otherwise was difficult in his prime.
