Get ready to be shocked. What makes it even spicier is Tank and JT don’t like each other.
All you are saying is that Tank has been more dominant in his fights than JT has been.
Being more dominant in your best wins is only a sign of greatness if those wins are against equal levels of opponent.
If they're not, it doesn't matter half as much.
The entire definition of shock depends on not being ready for it... Fairly basic English language there.
It's not impossible, but I will almost always back the more proven fighter over a seemingly more impressive fighter with an inferior resume... And I'm usually proven right to, too.
I hope you're ready for your illusions to be shattered whenever Tank finally does step up to fight a true elite.
You're getting over-excited after reading the Tweet and misinterpreting Ellebe's intension - this fight is not going to be made any time soon. You only have to look at Tank's resume to see he does not fight the best in his division. And Taylor is the best at 140.
You know, 'balance of probability' and all that. You'll be familiar with that concept due to your line of work, no? And if you are familiar, you could only agree - based on all the available evidence - the balance of probability is against these two ever sharing a ring.
What Ellebe knows is, after Taylor fulfils his mandatory against Catterall with the added bonus of fighting in Scotland for the first time in years, he'll likely move up to 147. And then Tank and Ellebe can claim a 'duck' from a fight they have no intension of making.
But you would have to strongly disagree with any suggestion it would be a duck because you place a lot of emphasis on the number of divisions in which Tank has won world titles* and would surely commend Taylor for attempting to do the same...
JT fought better fighters
Naturally the contests would be more challenging and exciting
The more i think about this fight, i really want to see it
It would so good to watch but damn Tank will get beat up like never before
No it’s not about equal levels of opponent because it may or may not exist. It’s about beating the champions and contenders in your era. The manner in which you win also tells us certain things. I am not going to denigrate JT but similarly I will not accept denigrating Tank because some people feel threatened by his star quality.
Of course it’s not impossible it’s highly probable and likely because Tank is a special talent. Do you even think this would be competitive if they were both 130 pounders with the same abilities they possess. The only advantages JT has are size and height. Height don’t matter because everyone is taller than Tank hence his shortness is an advantage to him and as for size the perceived advantage is in fact a disadvantage against Tank.
We don’t go around claiming ducks etc. The only person who ducked anybody is that punk Ryan Crybaby Garcia.
They have both fought very good fighters including undefeated fighters. Unlike a lot of clowns on ESB you won’t get me disrespecting JT’s opponents like they want to do to Tank’s. They become crap opponents after Tank beats them. It’s so obvious some here not you have a certain anti PBC/ Mayweather agenda.
Would be great fight but JT gets ****ed up as Tank will be more comfortable at the weight.
I hate how they do business ftom a fan POV but respect the talent massively
He would get tagged more he ever has before
Taylor would pick him off and take him apart
