Strange statement.
Holyfield was 41 years old hadn't a convincing legitimate win over a ranked heavyweight in 5 or 6 years (unless you count the headbutt TD over Rahman, 18 months earlier). He was at least 10 years past his prime. His fight against Toney is sandwiched between two horrible defeats to Byrd and Donald.
As great as Holyfield was, he hardly had a pulse at this point in his career.

Dempsey beat "live" versions of Jack Sharkey and Fred Fulton, top contenders of the day.
