    Holyfield had a hell of a chin himself, that doesnt mean Bowe cant drop Joyce. 2 totally different fights.

    His chin was great but Joyce's is superior. Bowe had a very average KO rate. Like I said he couldn't hurt Donald with a bare knuckled sucker punch 1-2. He simply wasn't a big puncher.

    He was a big enough puncher at the weight, i think big daddy would crack joyces chin.

    Big Daddy simply wouldn't be that big today, just like Big George Foreman. Bowe would get exhausted when he realises he can't keep Joyce off him with his light punches.

    I dont think big daddy would shrink! Hes 6'5 while Joyce is 6'6. Theyre virtually even stepping in the ring. I think Bowe with his skill and experience would be too much for Joyce.

    Joyce is stronger and more durable, but Bowe was more technically sound...

    It took Bowe 6 to KO the 200lb glass jawed Hide. Bowe takes this one but it's a long brutal night.

    Which again proves that he was not a big puncher.

    Yes 6'5 but 235lbs compared to Joyce who is usually 260lbs.

    Bowe was even easier to hit than Joyce and Joyce is one of the most high volume punchers of all time at heavyweight. He'll out work Bowe.

    I agree. They both hit about the same, have excellent gas tanks and block punches with their face. This is a great match up but Bowes inside skills are the difference for me.

    Bowe easier to hit than Joyce? I find that really hard to believe.

    Larry Donald is a fleet footed Heavyweight who fought to survive against Bowe, Donald is also a very durable fighter. He was only stopped once in 50 fights by Vitali in 10 rounds, whilst he was 35 I might add.

    Your rating Joyce this highly after beating Joseph Parker let that sink in for a moment.

    Bowe by decision.

    Bowe's jab could offset Joyce's, Bowe was a far better inside fighter, and I think Joyce would be put through a blender trying to march forward with no defense vs. Bowe.
