The former absolute world Boxing champion Evander Holyfield believes that was a good enough fighter to be successful in any era of Boxing.
“Because I knew how to fight cool, I can adapt to different styles. I could fight in any era against any heavyweight. I understand how to act close and at a distance. Knew how to avoid hitting tall guys. I had decent hand speed, very good move and cool worked on my feet. In my Arsenal there were many combinations, I threw out a large number of shocks. I was stunned opponents. I studied Boxing, it allowed me to play in an era where I was.
I was never a big guy, was not an aggressive man, but could act aggressively. If you’re on a life-only do Boxing, then that makes you successful,” said Evander.
