    Would you pick any of Louis’ opponents to beat Holyfield?

    Yes. Two. Marciano and Charles. I'd only pick one of Holyfield's opponents to beat Louis: Lennox. Holyfield's opponents were better. But Holyfield himself wasn't.

    If Holyfield had better opponents and has wins over those opponents how is he not at least on their level?

    Idk I really don’t see how Louis is better, I think it’s just his exciting style that makes him seem more impressive

    Surely Holyfield's even more entertaining style would make him seem more impressive? I don't know how you can't see an argument for Louis being better. He speaks for himself IMO.

    I don’t see how you can’t see the argument for Holyfield being better, guess neither side is gonna budge

    I can see it. I just don't buy it. I think it hinges on his toughness and foot-speed. I don't think that's enough to make up for all of Louis' advantages.

    I can see exactly where this is going. I'll list the catagories I think Louis is better in, you'll disagree and say so. Nothing will come of it, aside from maybe getting derailed into tit-for-tat debate which means basically nothing in relation to the thread title. There isn't much point.
