    Great fight. I'd pick Walcott to win a UD but Holyfield has a chance to KO him

    Jersey Joe was a smooth operator dancer..could bang far harder than Holyfield too..if the right Jersey Joe shows up..Holyfield is going out on a sick left hook right cross from Jersey Joe.

    Excellent fight though.

    I like Jersey Joe in this one. Quite possibly by KO as well.

    I've already changed my mind (twice, I had Holy winning before the thread).

    One thing's for sure, it'd be FOTY

    based off what I saw in the Marciano fight, even tho Joe was OLD, I would have to go with Joe

    He wouldnt stop Evander though

    My pick is 1987 Holyfield (who was at his cruiserweight best)

    As much as I like Jersey Joe, I think Evander would be too much for him and would eventually stop him....

    I can see Joe really outslicking Evander and winning a close decision .

    Yes , Holyfield would struggle with Jersey Joe , Walcott was so crafty
    With the feints I can see him dropping him out of the blue.Maybe not enough to keep the real deal down but enough to give him the edge to get a decision win .
