    If they sent the best version of Fury into spar with a prime Holyfield he would get kicked out of camp for not being able to give the Champ good work. Punching bag is in the corner.

    :lol: C'mon now Fury is nothing compared to Evander so far....

    Also Holy's right often times the further you descend on the weight ladder the better the boxers are.

    Is that the reason that a green Bowe beat him from pillar to post ?

    Is that the reason a legitimate crackhead straight out of a crack house had him out on his feet and was credited a knock down ?

    Prime Holyfield is a absolute myth, he could never put ANY consistency together................Roid issues, Heart issues due to Roids healed by a faith healer etc etc.............Holyfield brought us entertaining fights he usually lost and he was never ever a Giant Killer or "The Man" at Heavy, ever, again, too inconsistent .

    So far? Evander went 2-3 against Moorer and Bowe. 3-0-1 against Wilder and an aging Wlad is superior.

    Fury does lack depth of resume but he's already shown that his level is higher than Holyfield's was.

    Well your first comment shows your not dealing in reality. Bowe was anything but green. He was brought along right on time by some guy named Eddie Futch but hey don't mind me I'm just dealing in reality. Fury couldn't be a pimple on Bowe's a$$

    Your still mad at Evander for whipping Tyson's behind. It took longer for you to post that than it would The Real Deal to dispatch that big novice.

    Holyfield was eating PED smoothies for breakfast during his best years. Fury had to sit out for a couple of prime years because he had tested positive for steroids. I dont think that makes Holyfield better H2H.

    No, he hasn't. Not in the slightest.

    Wilder wouldn't even be in contention in the 90s. And Bowe would smash ten bells of **** out of Wlad.

    That's a strange statement considering that Briggs, Old Foreman, and Moorer were all lineal and Seldon, Bentt and Botha had belts put on their waists. It's a also strange when you consider that Bowe's best performance outside of Holyfield came against Jorge Luis Gonzales and that Bowe caught a horrible beatdown x2 from the one tall EE fighter he fought.

    If Holy makes it war he wins, if it's a boxing match Fury wins. Both guys are PED abusers. Holyfield lot, to guys like Moorer who isn't as good as Fury. Fury still has not fought a very good / great fighter fighter in his prime , Wilder is the best " Prime win he has " . Hard to call.

    All of the lineal champs bar Briggs beat more ranked fighters than Wilder - and Briggs tied him and was only ever lineal due to a robbery. Bentt was never champ, Seldon beat more ranked fighters than Wilder ever did, and so did Botha. If Wilder had to go through the process of fighting actual contenders prior to winning the title, and then had to also defend against them, he'd have never gotten anywhere.

    "Outside of Holyfield"... sure, just dismiss two wins over an all-time great. Two wins better than Wlad ever got. And Golota both fought nothing like Wlad, and faced a shitty version of Bowe. And that version of Golota would beat the version of Wlad who fought Tyson and AJ.

    You seem to have gotten out of the wrong side of bed today, George.

    Your “ranked fighters” claim is unsupported.

    If you’d like to use convenient logic such as concluding that Bowe was extra special for beating Holyfield and not the Holy was limited, I’ll point out that Wilder drew w ATG Fury and almost knocked him out twice.

    Fury isn't an all-time great, and drawing with him when you didn't deserve it isn't as impressive as beating an actual all time great twice.

    Bowe would put Wilder in the ground.
