JLUVBABY

Easily one of the 10 greatest HW fights in history... An all out war... I remember giving Holyfield alot of crap because he didnt fight this guy or that guy as a heavyweight. When he signed to fight Bowe, i knew he was in trouble... But... He put up a helluva fight and earned my respect. Rounds 9-11 were brutal... Great great fight...

The 3 Holyfield fights made Bowe's career...

They may have made Bowe's career,but they ultimately ended it too and left Bowe as a vegetable..He is punchy because of Holy..Holy was the first guy to drop Bowe in the pros..

Bowe never "owned" Holyfield. What a ridiculous statement. The 1st 2 fights were brutal wars, and the third found a severly ill Holyfield still finding a way to put Bowe on the deck and nearly stopping him.

Holyfield went on to win more world titles. Bowe went on to brain damage and a failed stint in boot camp.

In the end, Bowe won some of the battles, but Holyfield definitley won the war.
