He had a fast jab with nice pop and some pretty decent foot speed, his combinations were not as effective as Joe Louis or was he as magical as Ali.

Overall he had a pretty fast execution, Mike Tyson was faster with the power combo's

For a big man pretty fast, Vlad for me had the faster right hand after the jab with much more power but Holmes had decent speed but then so did Greg Page, Michael Dokes in his era....Holmes showed nice speed in the Leon Spinks KO ...top 10 in the speed ratings possibly and probably
