Imo Holyfield has a chance against every prime great in the world. He wouldnt be the favourite in all of them but imo he has a chance against everyone, he would have trouble with Ali, Foreman(prime)and all the big ones but i would pick Evander over Louis and Marciano Evander was always great against the smaller opponents. Marianos style is simular to Tysons and i think Evander would take him. Louis was a small heavyweight and Evander could outpower him in the clinch and such.
Holyfield is one of my favorites and think he is considered one of the greats but I couldnt imagine him beating Ali, Louis, Foreman, Frazier, Marciano etc...Even though he beat Tyson twice(1 by DQ) I still rank Tyson higher and would say Tyson would beat him in a best of 5 series. None the less he was a great fighter and stands above the rest of the pack besides the greats.
