    I agree.

    Had Douglas knocked Tyson out in 2 rounds from a single shot it would look far worse for Mike. It makes him look more susceptible to single shots and easier to beat, in my opinion. It's the opposite when factoring in his durability.

    I can see the other argument: you had to land right on Lennox's chin to knock him out as he proved difficult to outbox over 12. But that proves he was susceptible to single shots and that's all it took to beat him on more than one occasion.
