Default Re: Evander Holyfield Vs Wlad/Vitali Klitschko (Classic's Opinion)

I think Lewis put the nail in his coffin as a top level fighter, those 2 fights took allot out of him and he was already significantly past his best. BUT if either Wlad/Vitali fought him before Ruiz goto him they would have got allot of credit if they won - which isn't a given, Byrd pressed and made Vitali quit forget the shoulder excuse, Wlad was defensively much more open and didn't pace himself too well.

Holyfield would get loads of credit for a win over either prior to the Sanders loss, it wouldn't be seen as bad a loss as 1 to Brewster/Sanders because they'd be losing to a great, what they would go onto achieve would add bonus points to Holyfield's legacy
