Obviously, Marshall's a helluva athlete ... but we've recently seen that being strong, or jumping high doesn't always translate to being able to throw hands (sorry, Nate).
But, The Real Deal says Marshall's the real deal in the ring.
"Brandon, ya know, he looks good balance-wise. We weren't really sparring but he got good balance and hey, he look like he could be a good fighter."
Holyfield even compared the 6'4", 230 lb. former football player to arguably the greatest knockout artist of this generation -- The Bronze Bomber.
"[Brandon] pretty much got the same reach as the heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder," Evander says.
"He got that reach just like that but he got trunks. He got them big arms. You know he hit somebody with one of them, you know what, he ain't got to hit 'em right. Maybe if he miss, they still may fall."
