I don’t agree, And I’ve watched that round easily over a 100 times ( no joke ) Holyfield and Cooper are both two of my all time favorites and it’s one of my favorite fights in my almost 40 years of watching the sport live. I remember that particular night vividly. He gets rocked by that right, wobbles forward into Cooper, clubbed to the back of the head and the jaw, is spun around in to the ropes, goes down a Lane gives him the count. He gets battered a bit but less than 20 seconds later comes roaring back. GREAT ROUND. My closing thoughts on this matchup are peak Holyfield is a very tough out, so often in these threads people pull up and use fights for reference that aren’t his peak form. He had such a long career and he was different fighter at different stages of his career with varying success. I just think in his peak form he does everything exceptionally well, fast, great combos, chin, stamina, heart, good work rate, he would be very competitive with any heavyweight in history and in my view he beats most of them. Vitali always looked like a monster to me but he lacked the great opponents to push him towards the top (for me) and the fact that he couldn’t fight Wlad hurts too. I always thought he’d of beaten Wlad. He’s a tough out for anyone. Great Chin, knows how to fight big, strong puncher, toughness and Grit. I was always of the opinion he kinda retired Lewis. But fair play to Lennox he was past his best days while Vitali was entering his peak.
