He was still for all intents and purposes,in his prime.
When he fought Byrd he was past it,and against Iggy he was shot to shit.
The Holyfield that Lewis beat, trumps ANYTHING of Wlads record.
Debatable. I see that version of Holyfield from the Lewis fight struggling with all of Peter 1, Byrd, Iggy, Haye and Chagaev. Obviously all of Byrd, Iggy and Chags are going to give him huge problems after what Moorer did to a prime version of Holy.
