Akinwande's major flaw was his lack of self belief. Something Evander had in spades. But yeah stylistically i'd agree with you he could of coursed him problems.

Incidentally for similar reasons i wanted to see Bruno fight Holy, it would of been interesting to me.
Bruno was a good boxer, but he had questionable stamina and chin.
But yes, the fight would have been exciting, that's for sure.

Most likely, Evander by late stoppage in a crowd pleasing fight, like Witherspoon did vs Bruno.

Yep i think it woulda been crowd pleasing and i agree with that outcome, with it being a Witherspoon type stoppage.

I see Bruno running out of steam but i don't see Holyfield buzzing him like Tyson and Lewis.

Bruno would certainly give Holyfield problems.

Not a "hard" or "clean" knockdown, and utterly irrelevant in the overall scheme of things, but a knockdown nonetheless.

You are RIGHT about Lenny Lewis And Wladdy Klit doing teh same sort of thing to score Knockdowns - BUT Lewis would ALWAYS have his man BADLY HURT, THEN push or shove them down, so they would of been down anyway in a second or so, But Lewis made it happen faster. Akinwande did NOT knockdown Lenny, cos he did not hurt him before teh push. It was JUST A PUSH.

Lewis was generally pushing a man away from him when they lost their legs and holding onto him was their only way of staying up.
