It's a matter of opinion isn't it? If a peak Tyson outworked Holyfield in the first half of the fight,but couldn't put him away,would Holyfield then have enough to cream him? I don't think so.That's just me.
Tyson was a disciplined fighter in his youth.For one thing,I only remember a couple of instances ,when he was with Rooney,of him being with clean hard punches. Specifically Against Tucker and James Smith.
