Im really looking forward to this fight, but it also could be a dud.

I can promise you this fight won't be a dud. I respect the hell out of both these guys but in the end I see Tyson winning a UD. I think Tyson is going to want to keep it standing and outstrike him for 15 mins. What I like about Tyson is he's a wrestler, but he doesn't mind standing and exchanging. A lot of people make a huge deal over him not finishing fights but I think that's more of credit to a lot of fighters at 155 having solid chins and excellent cardio. Can't wait for this fight.
