With Olivo (again haven't seen it in a while), height and reach might have been an issue. But I don't think Yuh was ever really comfortable with competent boxer types.
The size difference between Olivo and Yuh was pretty extreme. Olivo could fight too, so that was always going to be a tricky match up. Are you assured that none of those fighst were robberies? I watched the Ioka rematch today...Yuh had lost a step I thought, but he clearly won.
