Evander Holyfield at 199, could have cleaned out most of our top ten.

    I want to see Usyk fight as much as possible over the next few years. There’s some great, interesting fights for him.

    Evander would have pressured AJ a lot. And he’d have gotten a lot closer to AJ than guys like Parker did.

    Do you think he could have beaten Bruno weighing 199?

    Douglas was in worse shape than any of today`s top 10 heavies in that bout, not much happened until that right hand counter and then Douglas quit.

    True.

    I think that Douglas mentally folded. But I think that that was Evander in his prime.

    I think that the early 90’s versions of Evander would have beaten most of today’s top 10 guys.

    Yeah.
    He now looks is over the hill.

    Maybe new bridger weight might be more suitable for him? He is now approx 217 lbs and in bridger he will not have to fight with too large elephants.

    Holyfield's first fight at heavyweight. In some ways he looked better than he did later.

    Nothing special in that fight and there wasn`t enough pop in his shots to trouble a top 10 heavy now, Tillis offered nothing in that bout.

    Smoking at the press conference for the holy fight Douglas was. A million miles away from the fighter that beat Tyson, both physically an mentally
