Holyfield was two weeks from his 41st birthday in that Toney fight. Maybe Marciano pulls out the stoppage then just like he did against Archie Moore 39, Jersey Joe Walcott 39, and Joe Louis 37. Marciano was real good at beating up old guys. I just don't see him doing that to any ATG heavyweights his own age. Prime for prime Holyfield has this one.
