    After seeing the headcase Golota beat the **** out of Bowe, I always wondered what Morrison could have done.

    Apparently there is some record of them sparring and with Morrison getting the better of it.

    How would this have turned out?

    Probably goes about like Bowe-Hyde, with Tommy having his moments until he gets sparked.

    Morrison would beat Bowe up until he gassed.

    Bowe would tough him down after 5-6 rounds.

    If Morrison lands the same hook Evander did then Bowe is gone

    Bowe is Massively underrated here. He lost one highly disputed fight to Holy. I thought Bowe won BTW. He beats Morrisons ###

    Untrue. Morrison "claims" they were to spar 4 rounds and Bowe quite after 3. He said Bowe is very lazy in training and Futch had to ride him all the time.

    Morrison may rattle Bowe a few times at the beginning, if Hide could im sure Tommy could .But Bowe s not getting stopped easily. Bowe keeps up the swinging until Tommy's beat and wore down.
    I'll go with Riddick by 7 TKO

    I think Bowe would be too good, too tough. Morrisons left hook could cause him some anxiety tho. Bowe liked a good scrap.

    I like Tommy and I think he is underrated h2h, but he is not beating Riddick Bowe.

    Morrison tries to batter him from round one, but gets discouraged near the end of that stanza. Round two is even... And maybe even a bit boring. After that, I can only see one result. Bowe takes over. The ref saving Tommy in the mid rounds. Bowe TKO.

    I think Morrison , if he put the beating on Bowe like he did to Mercer, would see Bowe down and out or giving up.

    When it comes to mental toughness, Bowe is lesser than Mercer. I don't think Bowe has Mercers chin either.

    I think Tommy has more than a chance in this, and I would favor him in this match.

    Is it a coincidence that the honkey fighters seem to have a separate scale of assessment in these parts?

    Hmmm....

    Morrison is not going to outbox Bowe. And let's be frank, he didn't so much as outbox Foreman, he turned his back and ran away from a geriatric half the time. So, the question is, who is the best fighter he KO'd? If you come up with a retired Ruddock, then you are building your castle upon sand.
