    Holy vs Vitali looks like Ward vs Froch
    Holy v WK looks would look like Hagler vs Felix Sturm.

    Excellent chance with Wlad, Vitali might just be too rangy at distance and he had a top chin.

    Most likely scenario is he loses both as Holyfield struggled with Big Heavies. 1-4 with Bowe and Lewis although past prime with Lewis. Foreman had his moments against Holy too and he was over 40.
    He could beat them, he was that good but logically I would make both K brothers a moderate favorite going in.

    Loses to both. They're too big and awkward. If he couldn't beat Bowe, how's he going to beat bigger, better and more technically gifted fighters?

    When pressured by Byrd Vital looked very awkward and allowed the smaller weaker man to back him up. I can Evander being able to frustrate and beat Vitali to the punch and win a decision. Wlad would be a tougher fight and likely look like the second Lennox fight. Neither of the Klitschko beat anyone of Evander's quality. I rate Holyfield a lot higher then both.

    Holyfield would enter that range that made both naked and uncomfortable. He trounces both.

    Best for best, I wouldn't give him much chance against Wlad.

    And no chance at all against Vitali.

    Holy is 1-4 on fair score cards vs Bowe and Lewis, 1-1-1 vs Ruiz, and 1-1 vs Moorer.

    I think the K bros go 2-0 here or at the very least 1-1

    Agreed, when the fight breaks out with Holyfield Wlad gets ko'ed. Vitali is the same, he has to have it on the outside and when Evander comes in the front door Vitali wilts
