1992 Bowe vs 1997 Holyfield

Will69
There are different theories on why Holyfield lost 2/3 fights with Bowe, one being that Holyfield chose the wrong strategy.  What if a more seasoned Holyfield, say arguably his best year, around 1997, went against a prime Bowe of 1992.  How does this play out?

If he fought the same strategy as he did in’93 he could very well win again. If he lets Bowe get in his head again and fight a war, then it’d be the same bad results for him

'97 Holy was better than he was in the early '90s. He was a lot wiser too. But a big man like Riddick would always pose problems for him.

These are all good points.  Bare in mind, Evander was also bigger in 1997 than he was in 1992.

Bowe is durable too and has Eddie Futch in his corner.

That is why Holyfield always has trouble fighting Bowe even with Manny as his trainer.

Same result. '97 Holy only looked good because Tyson was faded and insecure. And then there was Michael Moorer. Michael Moorer. The dummy that got KO'd by Foreman. He should have stayed at light heavyweight. He was a beast in that division for a reason.
