Holyfield would bring the heat and im not sure the Klits would be able to take it.

You cant really compare them to Bowe because Bowe was a great infighter
Vitali fought Chisora at 40 years of age, or maybe 41. If Holyfield beat Chisora when he was 40 with the scorecards Vitali beat him by it would have been a good win for him. When Holyfield was 40 he was losing to shot James Toney and shot Larry Donald. Current Vitali wouldn't have lost to either of those guys at that point in their careers

I think given Vitali handled Peter and Arreola (superior pressure fighters to Chisora) as effectively as he did it would be fair to assume he really was injured in the Chisora fight, or he has faded even more since his comeback a few years ago.

I don't think it's fair to say Vitali doesn't like pressure.
