    I believe TNT would probably have been a bridge too far for Wlad, though I would never write klitschko off.
    What's your take on it?

    There is no reason to favor Tucker.

    This, Tucker had good athleticism for a big man, but other than that he wasn’t very good imo

    Tucker was a decent fighter, but nothing more. Wlad is a great one who's better in basically every facet aside from chin.

    Actually there is if you watch the Williamson fight in which WK was dropped and was behind on one judges scorecard when the fight was prematurely stopped.
    Sleep was the closest guy in style to Tucker that WK fought outside of Fury.
    Tucker at his best was better than Sleep so for that reason he has a good chance of victory

    I gotta favor Wlad on this one, he is the better fighter overall and has the tools to pull off the win. But Tucker would trouble him and depending on which Wlad shows up, Tucker could possibly pull off the win.

    Ultimately smart money is on Wlad by decision.

    Wlad KO's Tony early or late- pretty much whenever Tucker chooses to bring the fight to the good doctor.

    Tucker in his prime was a fine fighter, but I see Wlad under Steward winning a still-close UD.

    You have to strongly favor Wlad but Tucker on his game would be quite awkward.

    Klitchko by decision, but one of his tougher fights I believe.

    ? He was 6′5″ with an 82 inch reach, great boxing skills and real power - 73% KO rate, almost 83% of his wins by KO!
