After Tyson beat on him for 19 rounds and (literally) broke his jaw?

He was 29/30 when he fought Holyfield. So he certainly wasnt past his peak age wise, he was the same weight, same muscle definition so he was clearly training.

Yet people here try to pretend that somehow,for some reason he was past his prime just because he got beaten.

If Tyson could have somehow fought the 1996 version of Holyfield in 1991, the same thing would have happened.
Watching the fights would help... If you can't see the difference between 1991 Tyson and 1996, then you're beyond it. And no, the argument is 1991 Holyfield as you said it would've been the same result back then. They were both different fighters.
