Yes inactivity is the death of any fighter. Boxing has to be second nature and the movements have to come naturally. Holy was active, and its not like he had to be too savvy against Tyson. I never thought Tyson ever looked like his old self. He made so many amatuer mistakes its almost like he was learning to box all over again, and his style had to be dialed in perfectly to work, because he was not boxing from the outside he was coming forward slipping and countering. The biggest thing that never returned was his timing, and thats a big part of the inactivity.
Mike was not inactive. Here come more excuses about how many rounds Boxed
Also i dont think Holyfield's tools were sharpened by getting beat up by Rid**** Bowe do you?
hindsight after the fact is great but Mike was favourite to win for a reason.
If Holyfield got beat by Tyson there is no waay you people would be giving Holyfield the benefit of the doubt for the things you are giving Mike the benefit of the doubt for and you know it.
