Thanks for straightening that out, my friend.
I give Holyfield the nod over AJ
Wlad will probably jab grab his way to an ugly win over Holyfield...
Vitali and Fury are tricky ... He can probably beat Vitali but Fury is so awkward and big he might give Holyfield problems
Looking back over the list, I'm not sure 1978-1981 Holmes couldn't beat all of them. Unless he underestimates one of them ala Weaver.
Maybe Ali from 1964 to 1970, assuming no exile.
In his absolute prime, he can beat them all. I think Vitali might beat him and full octopus Wlad might be tricky cause he'd outclinch him. Holyfield would be bamboozled.
John L Sullivan would KO them all.
And in your heart you know I’m right.
An old Luis Ortiz KO’d John L in his prime nice try.
Ortiz is not on the list. Checkmate.
Problem being, we don't think with our heart, we think with our head and that turns it around......enormously.!
I think there’s a lot of potential road bumps, the most obvious being Fury and the K bros. AJ & Uysk would also be tricky and I think Povetkin would give him a good fight. He definitely doesn’t beat all of them, even if we are just doing this on a single fantasy match up basis
He does beat them all IMO. Vitali is a tough night though
he was not big enough to beat them all. Even the guys today.. He was a warrior, but going 12 against these guys would have been tough.
He would beat everyone but Vitali I believe. Vitali is too big and strong I think plus his iron chin doesn't give Evander a puncher's chance.
I'd give Holyfield an excellent chance of beating all of them.
Fury would be awkward for him though
