Lewis & Holyfield were the changing of the guard from the era of Tyson. McBride & Williams beat a has-been.
Let me put it this way. Who would your money be on in an mma match between Bas Rutten & Minotauro today?
I would be shocked if you (hand on heart) thought Rutten would win. Was Rutten a poor champion? No.
so your basing this on the times? sorry but I Dont think Tubbs, Biggs, Berbick, or Tucker are that good.. Spinks yes, Buster Mathis yes.. the rest there solid at best IMO
