Lewis would beat everyone on that list lol
Joshua is open to a counter left hook, and he always has been. I think Holyfield would look to slip the right and come up with the left. I also don't think Joshua has the stamina or durability to withstand what Holyfield would bring. I don't think Wlad does either.
Vitali plain isn't good enough.
Fury has a chance based on his size. I think he'd probably win, actually. We know he wouldn't fold under Holyfield's pressure and we know he can box masterfully when he chooses. I think he may just be too long for Holyfield.
Wilder gets absolutely thrashed. Taken to pieces by counters and combos. Holyfield has almost every advantage over Povetkin, and would stop him IMO. It'd be an awesome fight though.
Usyk is the hardest fight outside of Fury, IMO but I think Holyfield would pressure Usyk in a similar way to Briedis. The pressure Holyfield applied vs DeLeon would beat Usyk IMO. Gassiev is good, but he's way too one dimensional to beat Holy with Benton in his corner. Okolie?
This is assuming he's at his absolutely best for all of these, which is highly unlikely.
In a career not in my eyes he had a lesser line up and was felled twice. Prime for prime single bouts of course he would.
I agree, no fighter in history is going undefeated if they faced the entire list in one career.
I think only Ali could “find a way”
Well he beat everyone he faced. Hypothetically speaking he could just rematch them provided he even looses like he did against the 2 looses in his career
I agree he beats them all in one-offs except maybe Fury but in the real world one after another, he’s bound to have an off night ala Moorer I and pick up a loss. This is a tough schedule for anybody.
If he wins in a rematch and losses the first it does not make him undefeated.
I never said he'd be undefeated but if somebody could pull of a career on beating everyone in this list it would be Lewis, albeit within 1 fight or a rematch
Indeed, Holyfield does not hold all the cards in a lot of these bouts- he is just the better more durable boxer then all of them on any given night where he shows up less then 90% he losses la Moorer style.
Possibly, though we really cannot how he will perform with fighters like Wlad and AJ they are a new sort for Lewis to face.
I only added them because holy also said he beats both, and I don’t consider them classic fighters.
Does that mean you don't count Wlad as an ATG? Sorry if I got confused.
I just consider him more on the modern side
