A strong counterpuncher like Holyfield was always dangerous and ready to fire back even in instances where he had been stunned.
Speaking of which reminds me of a question that was asked of Holyfield right after his loss to Rid**** Bowe in their classic first fight.
Holyfield was asked what was going through his mind while Bowe had him teeter toterring around the ring was battering him with shots in the 10th round. Holyfeld's response to that question was, "I was thinking, I got him now!"
All that aggression coming at a master counterpuncher, even when they're hurt a truly great counterpuncher will focus on all the openings being created by that aggression coming towards him.
Just made a Reference to Holyfield in my previous post here
