    AJ was the most recent victim to be Buster Douglas(ed) when he lost to Andy Ruiz. Which current undefeated fighter do you think could get Buster Douglas(ed) by an unlikely opponent. State which fighter & why you think so (i.e. stylistic advantages, height, reach...). Don't just say random names for fighters you don't like without giving a logical explanation. Let's not be biased here.

    Conor Benn and Vergil Ortiz seem the most likely to me unless their career is progressed very well with measured risks.

    Benn because he telegraphs his punches which makes him open to counterpunches and Ortiz because he's way too enamored with his power and lacks defense apart from that static high guard.

    Tank because he's getting too confident in his power at a higher weight. He's gonna end up getting cracked.

    I think Canelo is vulnerable to a slick boxer. BJS was scoring well against him before getting tagged.

    I don't consider Tank to be in similar position as Mike Tyson when he was about to face Buster Douglas. Tyson was unbeatable and wiping out every names on the list. Tank, on the other hand, is pretty much selective of his opponent and he consistently ducked every top names and opponents that looked slightly dangerous in every division he was active at. There is no way in hell he would call Teofimo Lopez or Josh Taylor when he never planned to fight top guy of his original size.

    This is a difficult question because we are trying to determine who is a highly regarded boxer that will be taken out by a lesser contender.

    Maybe Terrence Crawford. He is held in pretty high regard but he's a couple of weeks away from being 34 (pretty old for a welterweight), fairly inactive, and he hasn't dealt with adversity in a long while.

    I wouldn’t say Tank because he actually has to fight top 5 fighters within a division. We don’t know how good or bad Tank is because of his opposition. AJ and Mike Tyson was fighting top 5 foes and unified which made it shocking when a fighter outside of the Top 10 beat them down..

    In my opinion that person is Beterbiev who has been inactive and injury prone throughout his career not to mention age. I can see Marcus Browne beating him decisively which would be totally unexpected..
