This fight still pisses me off to this day. Evander should have won this fight. He outfought Valuev, landed more punches and didn't show his age much at all. Valuev offered nothing but the judges robbed "The Real Deal."
What do you guys think?
Holyfield had such a low punch output but he was far more accurate than Valuev. It could go either way. Holyfield didn't throw much but when he did he scored. But was it enough to win? Valuev was never in trouble.
You have to take the title from the champion. Holyfield looked better by comparison because he showed more movement but he still had a low punch output. You generally give the champion the benefit of the doubt in these kinds of bouts.
