    Bowe could have been great if he had Holyfield s heart.

    Bowe is strangely thought very well of here. I'll never understand that. Lot of holes in his game. Tua by stoppage.

    Bowe hits the deck early but rallies and takes a decision

    Bowe beats the shi## out of Tua. Tua is so overrated and constantly mentioned in these fantasy matchups. What did he ever really do to deserve it besides the big KO of Ruiz. Completely overrated fighter who doesnt deserve the constant recognition he gets. Complete underacheaver

    Yea but Moorer was a mental case who could blow hot or cold. If something upset him then he just doesnt show up in varying degrees

    No..no one did. Tua just a one trick pony in my book. Just didnt have it in him to go the extra mile. Too inconsistent..too lazy..too complacent..too overweight ect ect. Say what you want about Bowe and theres plenty but the man was a HW Champion something Tua never was

    Fair enough. For me it's not about how highly I rate Tua, rather how little I think of Bowe.

    I get it. I used to like Tua a long long time ago but just got tired of being disappointed. I didnt like Bowe at first. Couldnt stand Neumann and Bows weight in sucker punches but then I started appreciating his style. Liked his infighting especially for a man his size. He just wasnt afraid to bang and had a genuine meanstreak when needed. Entertaining fighter.

    You could also say the same about Tua to be fair. Both good but overrated for mine.

    I can see Bowe outworking Tua on both the inside and at long range. Bowe is way too versatile for a one dimensional Tua. If Hasim Rahman can outbox Tua for the majority of their fights, then Tua would have a long night against a prime Bowe (before Golota).

    In real life Tua was just not good enough....In imaginary hypothetical bizzaro world, I can’t envision him doing what so many others seem to imagine him being able to do in fantasy.
