Would Leon's pressure style beat John or would John methodically pick Leon apart?

I think Tate outboxes him and lands enough combinations to get a late stoppage from swelling or cuts. You could always reach Leon with right hands and lead right hands and Tate fired a nice one in there.

Before the Weaver fight it's Big John easy. Remember, he easily handled Coetzee and he was big and could box. After Weaver shattered him, I think John was capable of losing to anyone.

Certainly if Big John could get past Coetzee, and more to the point, his rambustious bomb throwing countryman Kellie Knoetze, then i think he could Handle Leon for a clear points win, but Post Weaver, Berbick is another matter entirely.
