Holyfield had more left as a fighter.
He went on to have a good showing against Lewis in the rematch and after that beat two high ranked contenders (Rahman & Ruiz) and may beat another one in the future, although i highly doubt that.
Norton, after the Holmes fight, got KO'd in one round by Shavers, drew with Ledoux, barely beat Cobb and then got brutally KO'd in one round again, by Cooney.
So Holyfield is greater all-round AND had more left in the tank.
I don't see how it's debatable which was the better win. Not that a resume should defined by the best win, but still.
