Eddie was a decent boxer that tried to use the huge height and reach advantage to stick and move.
Again, this is exactly what tyson was looking for because, not only does he time the jab to slip inside but by moving in fast and aggressive, he has the taller fighter constantly moving back whilst throwing which decreases their own punching power.
Tactically, everything Prime Tyson did had a significance in purpose.
Eddie is only 1 inch shorter than deontey wilder and weighed about the same. anyone who says tyson could not compete with today’s heavyweights at his prime could shut the hell up.
