    A former welterweight with a shaky chin up against Tyson does'nt bode well for the former welterweight with the shaky chin.

    Hearns by TKO at the weigh-ins.

    I don't think it's possible for Tyson to weight 200 pounds. It took everything he had to make his usual fighting weight of 217, as his walkaround weight is 240-250.

    But lets say he does---I couldn't think of a worse possible style matchup for Hearns. Hearns had a suspect chin, and had trouble stopping someone once they got inside on him.

    Tyson KO in 90 seconds or less.

    Tyson will find a way in, and penetrate Hearns troublesome chin. KO RD 3 or 4.

    Interesting possibility.

    I don't think that it is beyond reason to think that Tyson could have sweated down to 200 for the weigh in and fought at 215 lbs. A lot of cruiserweights today do it.

    Obviously we all know how this fight is going to end but I happen to think that Tommy Hearns could have had some success at heavyweight. Had he fought before the introduction of the cruiserweight division I am certain that he would have fought at heavyweight.

    Hearns would start off circling Tyson, keeping him at bay with the jab. Tyson would have to employ the best head-movement of his career if he is to dodge that laser-right hand that felled men with better chins than him, such as Roberto Duran.

    If he can fight a disciplined fight, with Kevin Rooney back at his side, Tyson may just have a punchers chance.

    I love Tommy, but frankly I can't see how he could survive a prime Tyson (if Tyson manages to make 200 pds).

    Simply put: prime Tyson is a Hagler on steroids :scaredas:

    He would swarm Tommy from the first round on with devastating body blows, and, on the other side, Tyson's peekaboo smartness would make him an elusive target. If Tommy chooses to brawl the fight is over in seconds. Tyson would demolish Tommy even faster than Hagler did.

    As mentioned in a post above: only way that Tommy can leave the ring alive is by fighting a very smart and disciplined fight: no brawling, keep his distance and stayy out of range, move around, don't be an easy target, sharpshoot Tyson non-stop... and pray.

    If Tommy manages to survive the first 6 rounds, he has a chance to go the distance and leave the ring on his feet. Sure, Tonny would lose all the same by UD, but at least he wouldn't need reconstructive surgery :!:
