you want to talk about styles make fights, Holyfield is a nightmare for Wlad. Holyfield is one of the most complete fighters ever. He can fight agressively, box, side to side, up and down, over and under, front to back, it's a goddamn disaster for Wlad. Wlad on the other hand has to have it his way the whole time. Nothing can go wrong, or it REALLY goes wrong. Holyfield by KO any round he wants after the 3rd round, after he figures out what Wlad brings to the table. Wladimir never had to deal with a mother****er like Holyfield. He gets hit with one right hand from a slow, plodding Wach and covers up on the ropes in a position you'll never see him in voluntarily ever. Sure Wlad can frustrate Holyfield with his bear hug tactics, but Holyfield's will and skill is too strong. If it even makes it to the late rounds, while Wlad is gassing, Holyfield is just getting started. It won't take many hard shots from Holyfield to put Wlad down.
