    Agreed. Norton was in no danger of being knocked down by Larry Middleton either.

    Norton feasted on boxers who couldn't back him up, Tuckers style works for Norton

    Doesn't mean Norton stops him badly. Tyson feasted on guys like Tucker too, even more so than Norton. Norton aint stopping a live body with a solid chin. And Tucker fought to the level of his opposition. Should be a good fight full of action but Norton could lose this.

    Prime Tyson couldn't stop Tucker and Prime Lewis couldn't stop a weathered old Tucker but Kenny Norton turns the trick?

    And pump the brakes on the Tucker has no power wagon. He hit respectably hard, something his opponents seem to agree on.

    I go with Tucker on a later round stoppage. Ken was a slow starter to begin with and TT would use this to the full.

    A real prime version of Jerry. Jerry was an alcoholic doped up for his bad back if memory serves.

    Tucker took some colossal shots from Mike and Buster.

    You got the wrong cokehead. That was Tony Tubbs.

    Ken by UD over 15 or 12. More proven then Tony. Though if Tony had been brought up properly, the result would be the opposite.
