Yup, he did. Holmes said, "Holyfield's gonna take him into deep waters and drown him." Ron Borges picked Holyfield as well. but trust me, if I had seen either his fight with Czyz or Bowe III, I wouldn't have picked him lol.

Picked Holyfield my arse! Whether you were 10 or 60, you most likely picked Tyson. No doubt some people thought Commander Vander was no push over, but very few would have actually picked him to win.

...Now back to the guys who bench 600lbs.

Borges was the only one of 49 sportswriters polled to pick Evander Holyfield to defeat Mike Tyson before their first heavyweight title fight, a selection for which he received much international notoriety when Holyfield stopped Tyson one round later than Borges had predicted. http://www.statemaster.com/encyclopedia/Ron-Borges

49 apparently. Even more than I thought. No one gave Holyfield a chance.

Everyone thought Tyson! The man had looked great again against Bruno and Seldon (even though Seldon could barely stand up in a breeze!).

Whereas Holyfield had the heart complaint rumours, the strange low energy Moorer loss, the Bowe knockout loss, the crusty performance against Czyz, plus he was older and more battle worn than Tyson.

People feared for Holyfield's life..........no one but Ron Borges gave him a prayer and anyone picking Holyfield to win surely hadn't seen the Moorer, Bowe or Czyz fights.
