Default Re: Holyfield vs Bowe 1

Holyfield couldn't turn his back on a brawl which made some of his fights a lot harder than they needed to be,but it's also what made him so compelling to watch.
Guy's like Tyson,Lewis and even to an extent Bowe had question marks over their hearts and courage for some time but we all knew what stern stuff Evander was made of from early on in his career.
When Evander chose to brawl against the more experienced,battle hardened Dwight Qawi we found out what toughness and heart he had,but also that his great pride wouldn't let him back down from anyone (or retire when he should've).
Call it a fault in his make up as a fighter but I for one admire Holyfield for it.
