    Tucker, very mobile and durable, he'd get a decision win imo.

    I did a bit -o- research b4 responding and noticed that According to punch stats when Tucker fought Tyson,
    Mike landed 216 of 412
    Tucker landed 174 of 452

    Mercer's top 2 fights IMO Cooper & Lewis. Against Lewis he only threw 381, yet they gave him credit for landing 223, whereas Lennox was 235 outta 531.

    Mercer facing a bigger foe, longer reach was able to do some work, I think it pans out similar here. Plus Mercer had the ability to throw all night if needed like the Cooper fight.

    Tucker., totally 4got how good he was until I reviewed his highlights against Tyson & Douglas who in that fight was sharp. He just ran out of gas!

    I can see a draw. Tucker takes 1st few rounds, evens out in the midrounds, back n forth 8-11, 12th round I think Mercer steals it back in forth.
    6-5-1 by 2 judges one in favor of Mercer the other Tucker. 3rd judge can't decide he calls it 6-6 even LOL!

    Both raise their hands while shaking their heads in disbelief. Post fight they give the same answer "I thought I did enough to win."

    Hey, its my mythological decision!
