Default Swap Tyson and Holyfield's title opponents around

Holyfield fights all of Tyson's opponents from 1986 onwards in the order Mike fought them,and Tyson does the same with Evander's from 1990 forwards.

The diminished version of Tyson would have a tough time with Riddick Bowe but would mow down everyone else.

Holyfield would probably have his hands full with Tubbs, Tucker, Spinks the fit version of Douglas, and Ruddock. Not saying he would lose those fights but he would have a tough time.

Holyfields opponents would be really tough for Mike. Bowe and Foreman are bad styles for him because of size and they use that size well.

I can see Holyfield being given stern resistance from a PRIME Tony Tubbs,but not the lump who fought Tyson in '88.

A prime Tubbs would have put up a better performance against Tyson. Maybe gone the distance with him.

Shame about Tubbs. Yet another eighties heavy who squandered his talent.

Tubbs was a little heavier but he seemed to be in good shape. He didnt look as lazy as he did against Bowe for example. His punches and footwork were pretty sharpy and snappy. He just made the mistake of trading in close a little too much and was caught by the short hook, but I dont think his fitness had anything to do with it. He claims his weight was up due more to his training with Lou Ferrigno than lack of effort in the gym.

I think they both share a good measure of success. Holy never loses to Douglas.

Tyson would beat MM more convincingly than Holy did imo and I don't think he loses to Bowe, a guy that open is gonna be cremated against Tyson (although if Bowe is content to stay on the outisde and push Mike back with fluid combos [ala douglas] he could stop mike late on)
