in 92 he lost to morrer:laugh: : :thumbsup: :laugh: :thumbsup: good one bill.bill1234 said:But he was just as old as Tyson, and Holyfield focused more on power in 97. In 92 he hit hard, fast, strong, agile, and had good stamina, and great heart.
He wasn't slugish and slow in 97 just relyed on his power to much. He like most boxers relyed on something to much. Frazier with his left hook, Ali with his speed, Foreman with his power, Holmes with his jab in the second half of his career.White Tyson said:He was a lot quicker when he was younger... I reckon he is sluggish and Slow!
I partly agree with you Mr WisdomDr. Wisdom said:Holyfield had 2 different eras. When Holy was first up and coming, he was a pure boxer, had speed, heart, a chin, and so many other assets. He also had a lot stamina. Mid 90's Holy, was great in all, but he still wasn't the fighter he was when he 1st entered the ring. Holy was a force to be reckoned with in the eighties. Remember he was an over-sized cruiser weight, and he destroyed the Heavy Weight Champ (Buster Douglas) in three short rounds. When he was champ, every was "quote going to knock him all around the ring", and all the found was the little man willing to slug it out. Homes to his credit fought a much better fight against Holy than he did Tyson. I will have to say the 85 - 92 Holy was better. How could you ever forget Holy slugging it out with Douglas.
Early Holy was better. And Yes in this era he would of beat Tyson the way he did in the 90's.
