Re: Holyfield...Did he just have Tyson's number?
This is the way I look at, and just like many of these situations, I try to keep it simple:
The question being asked is: Would Holyfield have always beaten Tyson?
I don't think anyone can argue the Tyson of the 80's was a much better fighter than the Tyson of '96. Holyfield wasn't peak either, but not nearly as far removed as Tyson. Holyfield fought great against Tyson, and continued to long after.
Based on that, I think there is enough there to say the fight has great potential to be much different, mostly in Tyson's favor.
And that's about as far as I can take it.
