The worst possible matchups
Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to name a fighter, or fighters, and the most disadvantageous style matchup you can imagine and why. If you are going to compare across time, PLEASE adjust for same day weigh-ins. I mean let's face it, Brandon Rios isn't a lightweight in any useful sense.
For Mike Tyson? Old George Foreman. Tyson just never had a plan B and if a guy could handle three rounds of fury? Tyson became ordinary. Old George had a granite chin, a calm, relentless demeanor and a heavy jab.
Marvin Hagler? Ray Robinson. Marvin occasionally flinched mentally in the face of a great reputation. Robinson never, ever did that. It would have taken him 6-7 rounds to get into the fight and by then? Ray would be uncatchable.
Ruben Olivares? The guy who would give him the biggest problem would be long, with a great jab, sound technique and an Iron jaw. Sounds like Panama Al Brown.
Roy Jones? Michael Spinks. Long, tall, technically sound and a big punch.
I'm gonna close with an odd one. Two 130 pounders who stylistically would be the worst matchup I can think of for the other. One guy struggled with fast, technically proficient boxers and the other, the few times he struggled, it was with long, tall punchers. Alexis Arguello and Floyd Mayweather.
Where am I wrong and waddya got?
