I disagree that Tyson would beat Holmes prime vs. prime but opinions are like assholes... and most of them stink.

Anyway, about Holmes "power jab"... Holmes jab was never a weakness and it wouldn't be a weakness vs. Tyson. Oh wait, they did fight in '88... was it the Holmes power jab that helped Tyson win?

Look, Holmes knew how to throw a proper jab. His jab was hard, fast, accurate, and steady. He defended counters well and he was rarely off balance after throwing it until well into his 40's.
