I had him drawing the rematch with Bowe upon most recent viewing (had it a holy victory first time I saw it) and losing the rematch with Lewis 7-5. I also had him nicking the Moorer fight by a point.

But take a prime holy (however you wanna define him) against prime versions of the following and how well do you think he does?

Wlad
Vitali
Lewis
Tyson
Holmes
Foreman
Ali
Marciano
Dempsey
Johnson

How well do you think he does?

I'll post a poll for the record you think he'd achieve in one off fights with these guys.
I got Evander beating Wlad, Vitali, Tyson, Dempsey, and Johnson.

I got him losing to Lewis, Holmes, Foreman, Ali, and Marciano.

Interstingly, I have all of the fights going the distance.
