Douglas was after Rooney was fired. We are talking about a Tyson under Rooney, circa 1987.

That Tyson would have put a number on the stationary version of Ali.
Stationary Ali was not knocked cold by prime Holmes.  Not sure if your argument is strengthening at all...

We are talking about a prime Tyson, circa 1987, not the post jail version which Holyfield beat.
Was there much of a difference, physically?  I think no.
Prime Tyson went the distance with guys like Ribalta, Bonecrusher and Tucker.  Yet you think he'd beat any version of Ali before Thrilla in Manila?
