I don't think that was all Zivic though. That was the last 2 or 3 years-worth of cumulated damage, that was never given time to heal because of Armstrong's hectic fight schedule. There was even some question over whether the commission would sanction their rematch in the first place because of all the damage to his eyes.
After Armstrong took a year off and allowed his eyes to heal, they never were such an obvious factor in his fights again, and he was able to beat Zivic soundly in a third fight.
