My scorecard is identical to yours, so Lewis wins 8-4 on rounds (116-112). Although nearly every round was fairly close, I don't see how anyone can have Holyfield winning ...

Holyfield did better but he did not win. Maybe people see it as a win or gave him rounds that he didn't actually win because in their eyes he won a round because he wasn't completely dominated like he was in the first fight.

They were two different fights however and should be scored as two different fights with the first having no bearing on the second. Lewis won both, first easily, second comfortably.

Just out of curiosity, can those who vote Holyfield actually put up their scorecards? I would love to see how you had Holyfield winning. I just cannot fathom that someone could have had him winning more rounds than Lewis. A moral victory because he did better than the first fight? Sure, ok. He won that way.

An actual victory based on him winning more rounds than Lewis? Hmmmm......:thinking:

Please, post your cards. It will liven up this discussion anyway.

I had it 116-112 Lewis,rounds wise I had it aswell like you TS,giving Holyfield rounds 3,6,7 and 12 while the rest go to Lewis.

Evander did do better than the rematch but he did not win.

Do you still have that link which showed all those journalists on who they think won?


I remember seeing alot of pretty well known boxing writers/broadcasters who thought Holyfield won.

This was surely because he came back from having been crushed in the first fight to actually challenging his far larger opponents in a few rounds. Anyone who had not watched or even heard of the result of the first fight but who knew how to score boxing would have had Lewis winning comfortably.

I scored this fight a draw and cant reall see how some of you have Lewis ahead 4 points.

holyfield landed the best punches in the fight also. lewis was stunned, something Lewis couldnt do in both fights to holyfield.

i agree that Lewis had the better of their first fight but i cannot see how anyone could have given Lewis the nod in their second fight... Holyfield called out to Lewis at the final bell, "i won this fight" .. yet he got shafted by the judges who voted for Lewis after what happened in their first fight.. The ringside reporters scored the second fight on merits with the vast majority having Holyfield as the winner... Holyfield was completely unmarked whereas Lewis was and looked beaten up at the bell.

Lewis controlled the first but the second was debatable IMO, but I thought the judges got the first two bouts between Barrera and Morales wrong too,

I had a recorded tape of the Lewis-Holyfield rematch, What was funny here was the commentary of Col. Bob Sheridan, He actually gave Holyfield the first seven rounds, with the first round even, his final tally was 116-113 in favor of Holyfield!

I just scored this fight the other day and had Lewis winning by 1 point, but I could easily see a draw as well. Very close fight, Holyfield hurt Lewis on at least 2 occasions while Holyfield was able to swallow Lewis' big uppercuts somehow.
