    Actually, he has become extremely overrated. A win over a faded Tyson has distorted people's perception of him.
    A prime Holyfield wasn't a hard enough hitter to take out Morrison. His only chance is to win it on points, but my money's on Morrison.

    I've got Holy #4 greatest ATG, only after Ali, Holmes, and Louis. No underrating here.

    Poor Morrison. Holy's style would be too much for him; Morrison is frustrated early on (even when he does land flush, which would only be a handful of times in the whole fight, he's astonished to see Holy come right back...hard). And Holy's left hook surprises him, buckling his knees twice in the first three rounds. Morrison tries changing up his strategy a bit by backing off and boxing more, but Holy is still right on him with his darting in and out style, forcing Morrison to keep defending and throwing punches, and making him look bad inside.

    By round six the writing is on the wall. Holy makes Morrison back up with a left hook-right hand, then floors him with another hook. Morrison makes it to the end of the round, but in seven he gets floored twice more and the ref stops it when he gets up the last time, eyes fogged up and dizzy.

    He was a combination puncher ...he’ll get Morrison out of there with those great combos . Tommy Morrison never beat anyone as good as Michael Dokes

    LOL!!!! But Michael Bentt can bounce Morrison off the canvas 3 times in the first round and get a KO1 over Tommy!!! Ross Purrity drooped Morrison. Yuri Vaulin wobbled Tommy. A SHOT TO pieces old as Hell Carl Williams almost stopped him in the fifth round after dropping him twice!! and I don’t need to even mention what happened when he actually fought better fighters right, like Mercer or Lewis!!!! He went to war with Joe Hipp!!! But Holyfield can’t hurt him. Where do you guys come from? Do you even watch boxing??

    Evander at his best is too good for Tommy at his best.
    Holyfield is too busy and had a consideranly better chin. He'll nullify Morrison's left hook for the most part and gets the better of the exchanges imo stopping Tommy in 6 or 7 rounds.

    My fingers were just warming up but you saved me the effort.

    Plus the fact that Tommy wore himself out. He was such a tight fighter, over-exerting... no relaxation. Basically, the antithesis to a James Toney. He was always sucking air by the 4th or 5th round. Vander would just have to wait and turn on the gas mid-rounds. OVER.

    IF he wins it, it will be on points in a very tough match. If Lewis couldn't take Morrison out in one or two rounds, you can bet your arse that roided cheat won't do it either.

    Morrison was also a roided up cheat, he even admitted it, plus Lewis didn’t take out quite a few guys early like he could have, that just wasn’t his style, it was alwayss box first and power second, if Holyfield comes out strong he could knock Morrison out faster than Bentt did

    Holyfield doesn't hit as hard as Bentt and the punch that Morrison got hit with could have knocked out anyone

    The Holyfield of Lewis 2 probably even beats Tommy, let alone a peak one
