I never said that Holyfield was not at his prime, rather that he was at his peak. I just explained why many felt he was past his prime when he fought Tyson. I felt that he went past his prime after he lost to Lennox Lewis in the rematch.

Alright. Well, whatever. I think the argument for Holyfield being at his peak when he fought Tyson are circular and ignore the amount of mileage on him when that fight occurred.

I don't see how a man could be past his prime and come out from a heart condition to beat Mercer, Tyson, Moore and fight to a draw with Lewis. He was even beating Bowe on the score cards before he got KO but him making a quick return from his heart condition recovery to fight Mercer and Bowe would obviously bring such risks.

Plus he did not look that different against Tyson as when he fought George Foreman.

Just my opinion though.

If it was boxing, absolutely nobody on the UFC roster could touch prime Iron Mike, IMO even the Klitchko's would struggle and might lose.

Mike was big, strong and super fast for being 200+ lbs.
I think Wlad might struggle and lose to Tyson, but Vitali is too good at prolonging fights and frustrating people using his reach and awkward angles. I think he'd eventually stop Tyson once Tyson couldn't get to him and gets frustrated.

Wlad might be able to do the same but I think Tyson would get pissed off at the constant clinching and eventually go ghetto on him and knock him out with a headbutt or something.
