Rahman had the better career of the two but for some reason he just couldn't beat Maskaev. Rahman had that bogus stoppage loss against Tua… while Maskaev was KOd (early in his career) in brutal fashion by both Tua and McCall. In that first fight with Rahman, Maskaev is taking punches that put him down at other points in his career (and with decent frequency at that). KO losses to Kirk Johnson, T-Rex Sanders, and Goofi Whitaker. Three guys who weren't quite at the level of Rahman. Rahman was competitive against guys much better than Maskaev. So what are some other fights where the lesser opponent had the edge on the better fighter?
