Holyfield is more accomplished than Tyson. He even beat Tyson twice. He was a lot older than him and was considered a great underdog in their first fight. Plus, he's a 4-time heavyweight champion.

Holyfield had a better carreer overall. Tyson could have acheived great things (maybe). But the fact is, he didn't do that much compared to Holyfield.

Nope. The fight of the year for that year went to a featherweight championship fight.

One of a number of stupid FOTY calls by Ring to include:
NOT naming Pryor-AA I FOTY (preferring Chacon-Boza I believe)
Ali-Spinks II instead of Holmes-Norton
Gatti-Ward III over Jirov-Toney
and I dare anyone to watch McGuigan-Cruz and Holy-Qawi I back to back and say "Yeah, good call."

It's close. 4 best people Holyfield beat are better than the 4 best Tyson beat (Tyson, Bowe, Mercer, Moorer), but under them Tyson's resume and performance is better. Holyfield also lost to Moorer and Bowe and got a decision that could have easily went to Mercer.

The Tyson of '96 that Holy beat is also not the same Tyson of '88.

The Holy of 96 wasn't the offensive machine Holy of the late 80s/early 90s either.
