Thanks for clearing that up

Foreman did land plenty against Holyfield and looked excellent occasionally against say Cooney, who I'm aware was done but it was a good performance. I'm not Old Foreman's biggest advocate but I see him having some success. I also think the '91 version is probably the best of the comeback versions

Stylistically fighters who come forward and back him up have more success against Vitali

-Losing public favor fast, Evander was under alot of pressure to be aggressive and knockout the "circus act" and took lots of unncessary risks in that fight that got him tagged a few times. Also just a case of Evander being Evander.

-To some extent with Lewis and Chisora, though Lewis retired as one of the all time great big man in-fighters and the more youthful Chrisora isn't too shabby. But in the case of an Arreola and Old Foreman, they are going to be eating lots of leather with little to show for it.
