    Who wins Holmes vs Cooney if Roger Tilleman (the biased referee who robbed Reid in his fight with Ottke) is chosen as the ref, and supports Cooney?

    Could Holmes still beat Cooney? Or would Tilleman's harassment/interference and bad calls do Holmes in?

    Iv never even seen one of ottkes fights but judging from the laceing he's been getting on here the past week he must be the most evil human alive.

    With Tilleman there to hide behind I'd favour Mr. Burns over Holmes.

    Could be. I mean, it has to be a German, right.

    Holmes wasn't really vulnerable to left hooks. But anyway Cooney was very competitive that night. So if he had a few more variables, some coinncidences in his favor...I guess the chance would be there! But on the other hand this was also one of Holmes' best performances of his career. Cooney will most likely beat the version of Holmes vs both Michael Spinks fights + also from the Tyson fight.

    Btw: i saw many Ottke fights and i enjoyed them. I liked his in and out style...he boxed like a cat. You can not blame him for the ref, his management, boxing politics and everything around. "Don't hate the player, hate the game" ;-)
