More recently Real Deal Holyfield:

Outlasted a squat endurance beast in Qawi

Fireplugs power punchers in Smokin Bert and Iron Mike (and sparred another in Tua)

A wily old experienced campaigner in Larry Holmes

Possibly the heaviest hitter in history in George Foreman

Adapted to beat very good big man and boxer-puncher in Riddick Bowe with a very strong jab

(In some people eyes - Not mine) came back in rematch against possibly best of the era in well rounded Lennox Lewis - another very big man with a tremendous reach

Pretty sure that (in reality) he beat an all time physical freak/monster in Valuev

Beat an under rated (IMO) light heavy who was a good methodical boxing southpaw in Michael Moorer

Leonard did, And Hearns to an extent with Roldan and Hill. But Ray Leonard comes to mind more with his wins against elite guys like Hearns,Benitez,Duran,Hagler, boxer puncher, boxer, boxer puncher, Southpaw boxer./puncher.

Haye is no 'boxer puncher' he's a negative stylist/sniper.
