Re: Holyfield...Did he just have Tyson's number?
Hoyfield's toughness, combination punching and good countering would always have given Tyson a lot of trouble imo. Even in Tyson's prime, I'd slightly favor peak Evander due his high punch output in his prime. Unlike in '93 with Bowe, Holy is the bigger man than Tyson and that's a big factor in my mind. Therefore, he could afford to get into a brawling, mauling type of fight. Moreover, I don't think Tyson was too exceptional later in fights even in his prime. I think he had like only 1 stoppage win past round 7.
