    This. Byrd was consistently a top 10 heavyweight and beat plenty of top fighters.

    Ross Puritty going into his fight with Byrd said Byrd belonged at super middleweight and that Byrd would be easy work due to the size difference and Byrd lacking power, but after the fight Puritty looked like a fool, since Byrd toyed with him and won an easy decision.

    Usyk is a level better than Mavrovic, especially after he's had a couple more bouts. We can say that with some certainly.

    Strange how little 215lb Mavrovic was able to cause prime Lewis plenty of problems, take everything he could throw at him and not come close to hitting the canvas, and have Lewis breathing a huge sigh of relief when the decision was announced, but the supremely skilled and gifted Usyk can't possibly beat the likes of Bum Squad, AJ or Fury all three of whom aren't fit to lace a prime Lewis' boots.

    Evan and Mavrovic 100% beat Bum Squad

    Its not rare a boxer with a long career doesnt remember all his opponents....or maybe he told Botha cause neither the fans remember all the boxers but everybody knows Botha.

    He fought Holyfield x 2 and Holy is the second most popular fighter he ever fought outside of Tyson

    Byrd might not be ATG but he was pretty good in his prime, he beat Holyfield for a exemple, you don’t question his greatness do you?

    So, being two-time heavyweight champion of the world and holding wins over unbeaten Vitali Klitschko, in shape David Tua, great Evander Holyfield (olad version but the same version still kiced Rahman's ass) is called "failed"?

    Holyfield was not great when Byrd fought him.

    Yes. It speaks volumes about how you had to shine up each win with bull****. If you want to be taken seriously in life, you should break the habit.

    Holyfield wasn't in his prime against Lennox either but is still considered by almost all boxing fans as Lewis' greatest victory

    Lol. Did Lewis miss that just recently a 6'1'' HW who looks like the fat kid from the movie "Up" beat the **** out of a 6'6'' 250 pound specimen who looks like a mixture of Mike Tyson and Shawn Rhoden? Size matters, but only if you're dating some tinder girls.

    Again, you making a bull**** argument. You should break the habit of being dishonest. We all know the difference between 92, 99, and 2003 Holyfield.
