Default Best heavyweight of the 90's??

I say it's Holyfield. He is the only one to beat Bowe, Moorer, Mercer, Foreman and Tyson. And did very well against Lewis the second time, when he was past his prime.

Bowe coulda and shoulda been the best, but he threw it away.

He also lost four times during that decade,Him giving a slightly better effort in the rematch doesn't change the fact that he lost

I saw a prime Holyfield batter a fat old Geirge foreman,Win all but two rounds realistically and still fail to knock him out despite landing what looked like twenty-twenty five unanswered clean shots.

Hey, Holyfield was a natural cruiser then and Foreman has only been knocked out once as we know-not in the manner that Holy did it. But he silenced the sceptics that said Foreman would knock him out and that he was just a paper champion and beat an overweight Buster Douglas etc. He put on a splendid performance over an aging, but still bearlike and fierce Foreman.

Here's my top 5 90's list:
Holyfield
Bowe
Lewis
Moorer
McCall

Thats strictly unbiased, facts-based. If I were making a strictly favorite list then ofc Lewis would be gone. Tommy Morrison would take his place. Or Ray Mercer. They were both the great unfulfilled potentials.

Where did you get this from? The only scepticism surrounding Holyfield and this fight was the fact that it involved a 42 year old George foreman,Holyfield was expected to win this fight and nobody gave oreman a chance

All this fight did was give the skeptics who claimed Holyfield was a blown up cruiserweight who didn't have power at this division more ammunition

If it were fact based then Lewis would be at the top of that list and McCall wouldn't be on it.

Tyson and even Hide and Akinwande have greater arguments than McCall does
