Holyfield should have retiered after that fight...sad to see him losing to Sultan Ibramigov and Larry Donald...not just losing but getting shutout on the cards.
He had a bum shoulder in the Byrd,Donald,and Toney fight..Do you honestly think Holy would of kept getting hit with those right hands from all them if he was able to lift his arm up??He started out ok against Toney but than I could tell it was buggin him..He had shoulder problems a couple times in his career and how much more obvious do ya guys need it to be when a guy DOESN'T raise his left shoulder when any form of right hand is coming at him..The first Moorer fight,Byrd,and Toney fights were all soo obvious..It was also buggin him in the Ruiz fights too..Another sign of something being wrong was his punch output..When it'd be buggin him,he wouldn't throw many punches at all..I think it really caused stamina problems for him too in some cases..Think about it,if you feel such intense pain in your shoulder,it'd drain you out for sure..
The Ibragimov fight was his only true loss of those 4 guys..He had his health and his shoulder..Still,his work rate wasn't where it should of been in that fight though..
