Joe Frazier circa 1971
Larry Holmes circa 1980
George Foreman circa 1973
Sonny Liston circa 1962
Win vs Frazier 12 UD
Lose vs Holmes UD
Win vs Foreman KO 9 (Foreman stamina terrible in his younger days)
Win vs Liston UD
I agree with all of these.
1 - Holyfield wins via SD (similar to Qawi)
2 - Holyfield loses via Close UD or MD
3 - Holyfield lose via TKO 7 (Holyfield in his prime was too easily drawn into a slugfest - which is the worst thing he can do against a Prime Foreman).
4 - Holyfield wins via competive UD.
Holyfield loses to Holmes and Frazier for sure. He may beat Foreman and Liston. Those last two would be good fights.
Amazing fight against Frazier, the latter stops Holy in 9.
Holmes stops Holy in 12 in a very tough fight. Holy might be slightly ahead on the cards at the time of the stoppage.
Foreman is trickier...if Holy tries to be a Warrior he's stopped in 3. If he is more restrained he stops Foreman in 9.
Liston knocks Holy down but gets beat UD in 12.
Frazier: Holyfield SD, possibly a Frazier TKO in the last couple of rounds, Evander gets knocked down in the last couple of rounds of the fight.
Holmes: Holmes UD
Foreman: Holy UD or Foreman TKO, this can go exactly like the Young fight.
Liston: Holy MD.
Lol yeah Foreman stamina was horrible because he got tired in 1 fight. Why do so many casuals like you keep repeating the same wrong information.
You do realize Holyfield fights nothing like Jimmy Young right?
You do realize I never said that, right?
Lol you said a prime Foreman vs Holyfield could go just like the Jimmy Young fight kid. Which means you think Jimmy Young and Holyfield fougth the same. If you didn't why would you even bring up Jimmy young. Holyfield isn't a mover.He is a guy who stood there and tried to bang.
You have to be an alt, theres just no other way you take "Holy vs Foreman goes down like the Young fight" as "Young and Holyfield are the same fighter"... Theres just no way, and ive seen you on other post do similar, and im not even going to touch on the fact you called Evander a slugger. Either your a dunce or an alt.
I wont entertain your alt trolling.
I think Evander's favored to beat them all. With that said, I would bet on each individual fight on Evander, but I wouldn't bet on a sweep. Those are some tough customers! It's very hard for anyone to get through them all without picking up some sort of loss along the way.
Holy was a pressure fighter.
Holyfield didn't dominate a 43 year old Holmes enough for me to favor him against a prime Holmes. Before Holmes started gassing out after round 7, I had him ahead. Had he been 10 years younger, I think he could have pulled it off.
