    Someone did an interview with them both on this topic, Evander thinks he would win of course. Vitali was all respect for Evander. 2 ATG's and 2 of my personal favorites showing great class.

    You must be joking...., Holyfield has one of the best resumes in Heavyweight history. How about giving Riddick Bowe his first loss?? Wobbled by Tyson that’s a good joke, he destroyed Tyson. Lost A close one to Moorer and then came back and destroyed him in the rematch. You mentioned Holmes and Foreman and then said they were stopped by average punchers before????? Do you actually watch boxing???

    Picking Vitali is fine but if you think Holyfield beat no one then Vitali definitely didn’t beat anyone. C’mon man.

    Foreman being stopped by Young was the funniest thing I read here i think he's just taking choice haters comments from the general forum.

    Only thing that stopped Foreman was Foreman.

    On a side note.

    I give Holyfiled a better chance than most ATG against Vitali. He is one fighter that almost gets to 50/50 against him. The other ones, and I am holding my nose saying it.
    Riddick Bowe, and perhaps Foreman. Dempsey and Evander are close runs, none I would favor, but they have the style to compete.

    You have to be a great inside fighter, and big enough to not allow Vitali to out muscle you into a clinch on the inside.

    Holyfield UD.

    He outboxes, outfoxes and outmaneuvers a game Klitshcko.

    It would be quite the scrap though.

    Holyfield. Better movement, better skills.

    I did not forget Lewis. He is a great match in his prime. He was losing to Vitali, and if the cut had not happened Vitali would have won. IMO

    Cannot see how vitali would win this, his best proof win is Sanders, a nobody in Holyfields time even though he was back then prime.

    We do not know what would have happened. We do know that an out of shape and past prime Lewis won fair and square.
