Default Re: Evander Holyfield vs Lennox Lewis in their primes?

I personally think Lewis would win because styles make fights and when they actually fought Holyfield won about 7-8/24 rounds. Meaning the first fight was about a 9-3 round fight in lewis' favour and the second fight was a closer 8-4 or 7-5 fight in Lewis's favour. So the question is what could Holyfield do differently in his prime to change this outcome. The most obvious answer is to be busier and to move more..but that's unlikely to win him the fight..at least in my opinion. The interesting question is whether or not Holyfield could out jab Lewis, as I think that would be a key factor. Because I doubt it would be the type of war Bowe-Holyfield fought, it would be more of a boxing match. Prime for prime, I doubt it.

Anyway, I see it as being a close fight, no one goes down, so it's a decision win by either one. I'd pick Lewis but I don't think it would be a huge upset if Holyfield found a way to win.
