Default UK Evander fans- Holyfield was sensational saturday night

That was a world class performance the other night, Holys timing and heart were right back and he worked the body well and bounced through 10 rounds..... how incredible can one man be.

A guy caught cold by arguably the hardest hitter in the history of the heavyweight division with a proven record for durability. I was referring to Holys timing, stamina and speed which were all impressive. Did you watch it?

Watch his fight on sat and you'll change your mind... he deserves a crack based on this.

Not seen the fight yet but to be honest i dont think beating Saverese warrants a shot at a title but hey, fighters have got title shots recently for far less.

If he can look good against a decent top 10 guy then fair play to him but im still not convinced he has enough left in the tank at this time to fulfill his dream.

No one in the heavyweight division is doing anything Holy might be the best heavy in the world again.

Do you honestly think he's better than Wlad at this point in time?

I'd strongly pick Peter, Klitchko, Valuev & Chagaev over him.

Holy has done very well and is a top 20 contender again. Oquendo, Maddalone, Savarese and Bates are good wins...

...BUT...

...they are carefully chosen opponents and rightly so.

Ultimately Holy CANNOT unify. This Holy will not beat Wlad.

I'd love for Holy to win a title. It would make me smile. We all know he is past it but so was Foreman. It would be great to see him one left hook away from that title. I'd love Chagaev v Ibrag winner to fight him as an easy first defence and then get a shock as they get too ballsy on the old man.

Yeah, that would be a night to remember. My eras Foreman. I'd love it.
