I don't see him beating Lewis, ever. Lewis was never outpointed and Holyfield didn't have the punch to KO him.
How did he struggle with Czyz? Because he tried to knock him out quickly and couldnt? He stopped him eventually, I would hardly call that struggling and classify more as careless fighting on Holyfields part. Its not like Czyz was a club fighter, and once Holyfield realized he wasnt getting a quick knockout he started setting him up quite easily..
