Default Re: Holyfield...Did he just have Tyson's number?

Yeah but that was way after. Holyfield looked spectacular against Moorer and still fought competitively with Lewis. Holyfield was definitely past his best, but he showed more inconsistency. He would look good and then look bad. Also Holyfields style changed as well. He wasnt the same on his toes boxer that he was in the early 90's, a style that I think would have worked better against Lewis.
To me Tyson looked horrible against Mathis, he was missing like crazy and Mathis was nailing him off of counters, and super sloppy against Bruno although the finish was pretty impressive. The only thing Tyson kept after prison was his speed and power, and thats what bailed him out of most of his fights. His timing was terrible and his footwork was all mixed up. Frans Botha was able to outbox him for crying out loud.

99 when he fought Lewis, he should of lost both fights then lost both his fights with Ruiz or should of at least.

Moorer who was having a tough time with Botha!!! and had been knocked out by an ancient Foreman.

Can i get a gauge on what your actually saying here, just so i know.

Holyfield at aged 34 after being in all those wars and looking terrible against Bowe, Moorer had more left in the tank that Mike who had been to prison and not been involved no where near the kind of wars Holyfield has been in, that about right? i just want to clarify that, that is your opinion, please can you give me a straight answer though instead of going around the houses.
