    It's hard to say. What's the closest thing he's fought to Evander? Chisora? Cunningham?

    I'd probably agree with draw or close fight either way.

    size won't matter to the real deal he whooped on 7'0 300lbs Valuev at age 46 and man handled Tyson in their first fight

    Its kinda weird because neither of those two fought anyone with quite the attributes of the other.
    Holyfield never faced anyone as big who was as light on his feet as Fury was.
    Fury never faced anyone with the boxing ability, speed and tenacity of prime Holyfield.
    I'll lean to the skills, speed , and tenacity of Holyfield.
    The leaning tactics Fury used so successfully against Wilder wouldn't get him anything but beat up in close quarters against Holyfield.
    Fury would need to be able to control the center of the ring with his jab, stay off the ropes, keep Holyfield from getting in close with his movement.
    I don't believe he'd be able to do that over 12rds. Holyfield was a punishing body puncher, and he'd have a much larger target area than he would usually see.
    In my opinion Holyfield grinds Fury down , stops him late.

    I would cheer for Holyfield as he’s one of my favorites but I don’t think I’d have the confidence in him to beat a guy who has that much of a physical advantage. And Fury wasn’t Nikolay Valuev. I think fury wins a decision but in a competitive fight

    I really don’t think Fury has the skills to do much against Holyfield. Case in point look at the Wilder fights….. Wilder has nothing besides a big right hand. And look how long it takes him to dispose of him. Now just imagine if Fury had to face a puncher with the skills to set that power up or a boxer who could actually box etc….. I don’t see Fury doing a whole lot. I’m going Holyfield late TKO or UD

    Fury will never be Suga Valuev. That was a real fighter.
