All three fights were good. Holyfield is technically sounder throughout the rematch. While he does avoid Bowe's jab with more ease, he doesn't quite dominate Bowe as well as himself and Steward expected. Holyfield boxes better, and shows nice movenent. More defensively aware. He learned from the first fight that Bowe was just brilliant inside. Going inside and slugging it out with Bowe was a very sorry mistake during the first fight.

The double jab was Holyfield's main weapon during the rematch.
