I hear Holmes shrugged off everything he threw at him.
I think some weight can be thrown behind this. He was better at LHW - just look at the record.

Holmes may have been a bit past it when he faced him.

Welcome. Did your avatar become inflated since last time?

Oh, Spinx never beat a good HW. Tyson was good, not great, and we seen what happened to Spinx in that one...

I really don't see how you can consider him great, John, when everything is considered.

You do have some pretty weird views tho dude. Tyson being great should not be up for question, just how great is open to interpretation.

Not an ATG top 10 HW in my view.

I once thought he had a place, but more like a 15 or lower is better regarding current thinking.

So 15th best Heavyweight ever isn't an ATG? 15 would be the worst any reasonable judge could have him, possibly too far down full stop.

I'm not a rapist nut hugger. He destroyed himself regarding boxing history.... a 15 is a bit liberal in my own view. Closer to 25 would be my choice... and, no, sorry, a 25 is not an ATG.
