It would be a bit of a wild one. Full of low blows and headbutts.

Holyfield's better and more accurate boxing would result in a 12 or 15 round decision win. Clearly on the cards,but it would be tough for Evander,physically. Bonavena could score a flash knockdown.

I don't see this as any sort of competitive matchup. Oscar really didn't win too many big fights. He hung tough and lost but that's about it. This would just be another Decision loss for Bonavena & he'd be hard pressed to win 3 rounds.

Holyfield would have the fight of his life, but he wins this by a squeaker of a decision over Bonavena, which would cause there to be a remathc.

You badly underrate Bonavena..he'd have lost to Holyfield, but it would have been a very tough fight for Evander.

I was about to say the same thing......the Bonavena from that night against Ali would give Holyfield a hell of a fight !
