I have now viewed the fight 3 times, and my count shows Tyson holding
Holyfield more than Holyfield holding Tyson, by 1:37 over the (almost)
11 rounds. Don't forget to watch the way Tyson cinches his right arm
on Holyfield's left glove and arm. I consider all holding to be on the
part of the initiator, as it should always be.
About those head butts, nobody's fault. Both men lead with their heads
at times, and this time it was actually Tyson leading in, head first.
If you don't agree, then you do not understand boxing. This is not an
opinion, this is a fact.
The low blow WAS a low blow, but it was not intentional and it did not
affect Tyson past the 6th. It did, however, hurt him in that round.
I am a Holyfield fan, not a Tyson fan. However, I believe that Tyson
displayed a great deal of class at the end of the fight. My hat's off
to him. As for Holyfield's tribute to God, well, that is his belief
and I won't take anything away from him for that. Being an agnostic,
well, I can't really make up my mind;<)
I will finish by saying that, if God exists, then Ralph Reed is Satan.
Or Satan could be Pat Buchanan, or Newt Gingrich, or Ronald Regan,
or...Don King? Or...
Geez, I hope that I spelled everyone's name correctly. Wouldn't want
to agitate Satan.
