    I'm going with Dokes on points. Thoughts?

    Berbick on points. He's much stronger and I doubt Mike will be able to move and box and keep him off consistently.

    Berbick could be awkward and make the other guy struggle, this imo is what would happen here. He'd stop Dokes from being effective and get a points win.Don't see either man really being in trouble from the other, I don't think either had a killer punch.

    Berbick was just a big strong bloke who was a nutter. Dokes should win due to his speed as long as he doesn't run out of puff .

    Good fight. Hard to pick a winner. Leaning towards Berbick

    Dokes takes the early rounds and Berbick takes over to get a points win. Both very inconsistent fighters could go disastrous for either but prime vs prime Berbick

    Surprisingly hard fight to pick. Berbick's aggressive, mauling, physical style was kryptonite to boxer types like Greg Page, John Tate and Pinklon Thomas. Dokes was quicker and threw some eye catching combinations. Young Dokes by decision. Berbick was a late bloomer so I would take him by decision anytime after 1985. RIP to both big men.

    Dokes on points. It would have been a very forgettable fight.
