IT IS EASY TO LOOK LIKE A HARD TO HIT,WEAVING,DUCKING FAST,THUNDEROUS PUNCHER WHEN THE GUYS YOU FIGHT ARE SLOWER,LESS SKILLED,AND CANT TAKE A PUNCH THAT WELL.
WHEN YOU FIGHT MORE SKILLED FIGHTERS,WHO ARE FASTER,STRONGER AND CAN TAKE A PUNCH,YOU DONT LOOK THAT GOOD!!!!
Thats what happened to Tyson against Holyfield.
Its like seeing guys play basketball in Italy and they're raining 3 pointers, rejecting guys and hitting windmill dunks for fun, you put them in the NBA and suddenly everyone is that bit bigger,stronger fitter and more skilled and suddenly they're not doing all those things anymore.
They havent gotten any worse,its just that now they have less time and space on the ball and arent physically as dominant anymore.
