Lindell Holmes would knock Michael Nunn out? Which Lindell Holmes are you refering to, the one that got KTFO by the legendary Irving Hines and Dwight Davison? I hope your not implying Nunn was scared of Holmes? What, the Nunn that fought some of the best in his division such as James Toney, Marlon Starling, Sumbu Kalambay, Iran Barkley etc, the one that challenged the winner of Benn Eubank 2? If he didn't want to fight Holmes it's more likely because he had bigger and better fights in the pipeline.

Prime Roy was more devastating but if Roy would have won against a prime Eubanks who himself was a very unorthodox fighter? We will never know...

Personally, I would say that prime Roy would not have been able to dominate Eubanks. He would have won though (60:40 chance)

'KTFO' by Davison? It was a BS stoppage (Lindell blocked every shot on the ropes). Graham one was a BS stoppage too (clear headbutt). And he was said to have been robbed against Kalule and Park (not seen any of those fights).
I'm referring to the Lindel Holmes who knocked out Michael Spinks shortly before the Olympics.


'Michael Nunn has pulled out of four fights with us. Now Nunn is with Angelo Dundee. When Don King's people called Angelo and said you're fighting Lindell Holmes, Angelo said, 'Why don't you fight Lindell Holmes.' Duran wouldn't fight us, Leonard wouldn't fight us. Hearns won't go in the same building as us because when he was at the Kronk Lindell was beating the bleep out of him every day. They don't give you a shot at the world title unless they think they can beat you. Lindell used to get in his car, drive 60 miles from Toledo to Detroit, beat the bleep out of Mickey Goodwin, Caveman Lee and Tommy Hearns, then get in his car and drive home.

Deluded

but he didnt actually say he was better than Roy

He just said he was more dominant (a clear lie) and never ducked anyone unlike Roy (actually true)
