Anyone who thinks that Holyfield fighting the current heavyweight champs is a good idea knows nothing about boxing. I guess it’s going to take Holyfield and guys like Roy Jones jr. getting taken out of the arena feet first to realize that it’s time for them to hang it up.

Evander Holyfield should be wise and consider fighting other opponents on a level near his own or lower then fighting the young top challangers of todays era. Even if a younger Evander Holyfield would in my oppinion beat almost all heavyweights of today’s era, he is old now and can’t beat most of them due to natural aging and have to acceptthat. Can’t beat any of them = NO interesting fights to watch for any one. Holyfield should aim for fighting veterans near hius own era or age like Oliver McCall, Shannon Briggs or a re-match with James Toney (This time Holyfield would win) or low risk opponets like simple journymen or tomato can level opponents. WOuld not be much to brag about but it would be fine victories for Holyfield for his record and with his legendary name in boxing and sports he would still sell and earn good money and minimal injury/damage risks for him. Holyfield was great in the ring and one of the very best in his past but that was then and now he can’t put on a thret to the top ones and that makes the fights against them uninteresting for any one to watch plus beating an old man and legend would only hurt the young mans career and character so it will not happen and should not happen. I wish Evander Holyfield all luck in his quest.

TARK – When Evander Holyfield fought Larry Donald in 2004, Holyfield was still injured to his shoulder and becouse of that fought clumsy and not balanced and its obvius when watching the fight that he was not 100%. I will not take away Donald’s victory as he earned it but if Ho9lyfield had been healed he would have made a lot better fight and mabey had won

I think they should give him a fight on the proviso he quits regardless of the result which is certain to be a loss by Evander much as I loved watching him in his pomp, think he should have called it quits ages ago his life though and he is a grown man so his choice.

Posted August 20, 2012 11:27 am 


Voice of, Holyfield is certainly a good man and a former great fighter. Age discrimination notwithstanding, if anyone wants a world title shot they need to fight a lot more than once a year and NOT QUIT in fights which is exactly what Holyfield did against Tank Williams. The younger Holyfield would never have quit in the ring like that.

Vitali should fight Holy with special rules. Vitali is only allowed to use one hand. That would make it more fair. Vitali would still have a massive advantage.

Well as much as I love to see Evander Holyfield in the ring, I can’t accept a fight with Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield vs. Wladimir or Vitali Klitschko, I just can’t even with the fact that he needs the money to pay his debts I can’t accept it due to that Wladimir is in his prime (36) and Holyfiled is an old scared warrior (49). 13 years between them is just to much and I know that Wladimir have lots of respect for Holyfield and would never accept to fight him on free will. Only if Wladimir was forced to fight him becouse of a mandatory title defence reason but that will never happen due to the ex-champ’s age he canr beat the men in top to take there shot. Holyfield should have had a better chanse against Alexander Povetkin and even there the chanse to win is minimal and the big moneys would not be there and Povetkins title is just a paper belt so it would be a great victoty but for no title if Holyfield pulled of an upset.

The one thing that I think is wrong. Is holy was worth 200 million gets divorce and judge gives wife 100 million plus child support and the mansion. Makes no sense holy took all the pain, training, torturing the body to get into shape for fights not to mention the pain in he fight and he losses 3/4 his life earnings. Makes no sense 10 million ok even 20 mill but not that much. No athelete male or female should ever marry. Same thing happened to Johny carson he was worth 300million married model who was worth 500k. She divorced him after 1 year judge gave her 150 million dollars.

I totally agree, Holyfield should fight Chris and the winner get a shot at one of the Klitschko brothers. That is the same thing that Holyfield camp used with Larry Holmes and Ray Mercer. It happen that the older Larry Holmes beat the younger Ray Mercer, and Holyfield almost lost that fight with Holmes. Holyfield must realized, he is not going to get a free to a title shot because of his name when he has not fought anyone in the top 10 or even ranked. He did not do it when he was champion, so he can not cry foul when the Klitschko brothers will not fight him

Posted August 19, 2012 11:03 pm 


You must be jokin, Bowes jab and right was hardly better than that of freakin Golota and his footwork was amateurish compared to the K-bros.

And please dont call Holy the greatest when his biggest success was to headbutt Tyson into submission

Posted August 19, 2012 9:20 pm 


How do you expect the small Holy to get inside considering the exceptional footwork of both K-bros? He would eat tons of shots tryin, but land hardly anything as the K-bros wouldnt be there anymore for him to land.

Posted August 19, 2012 9:17 pm 


I know somebody has probably said it before, but WHY at 50 in October is any man looking to fight supreme giants? Either the mind is truly gone (I never was the biggest EH fan, but always respected his courage), or has all that money gone down the river. Each way, very sad to think about a global superstar in this day going broke completely. One little thing I will say, Evander did beat Valuev, no doubt, but the KO’s are no slow lumping giants. Please Evander, get out now and concentrate on a possible punditry career, while you still have a few marbles. You deserve it as you had a great career, but sport is for young guys. Take the lower but easier pay-check.

Posted August 19, 2012 8:57 pm 


im 44 used to fight love watching it and everytime I go I think hmmmm one more time but thats the mind cashing cheques for a body that cant pay EH exactly the same. Stop fooling yourself Evander retire with pride and legacy intact.

Posted August 19, 2012 8:40 pm 


@ THE VOICE OF REASON. You act like everyone in here is bashing EH just for fun and not recognizing the fact that he once was a Great Warrior. Eh had his chances to be Champ again but blew it, now at this stage of his life he can still fight yes, be World Champ again? no, and you know this. New blood has taken over, EH is from another ERA. When he gets hurt and suffers brain damage, I know you will be nowhere to be found when it comes to 24/7 care. I am Puerto Rican and when I go to PR I always visit “EL RADAR” Wilfred Benitez, it is a sad sight and he too has no money. Don’t throw a fighter under the bus for your entertainment. EH, you lived a 5 star red carpet life and blew lots of money forgetting about tomorrow, now your looking for a bail out. Fighting is not gonna be the answer brother, keep looking.

Doesn’t Evander have ANY friends whose opinion he respects and who would have guts to tell him his feet are about 2 feet above the ground? Can’t he “fight” some one that would be kind enough just to show him how he’s past it but wouldn’t hurt him too bad?

Posted August 19, 2012 5:19 pm 


Holifield need to sit his old butt down somewhere ever 1 knows he just want a paycheck. I can’t believe he waist his money like that. We’re talking about a guy that’s made 100’s of millions boxing and now he’s all jacked up financially. The guy had a 107 room mansion I mean what the hell you need 107 rooms for. Just doesn’t make sense and now he’s 49 auctioning off his gold medal-his belts-some of his things are being repossessed and it’s crazy. He needs a big paycheck-he can’t deal with the Klits-to old-shop worn-slow he’s just done. I wish him the best-pray he stays out the ring

Posted August 19, 2012 4:21 pm 


My all time fav heavyweight is now a complete joke. 49 and fighting nobodies, anyone see his last fight? FARCE! He was done a favour otherwise this unknown would have beaten him. ETHER K brother would DESTROY Holyfield. Too small and too far gone. They would literally kill him. Evander wake up and smell reality mate, and that’s coming from a fellow Christian. You cannot carry on twisting scripture to suit how you want things to be. Retire before someone retires you.

Posted August 19, 2012 4:17 pm 


“E Europe has taken over boxing.” LMAO! There are exactly 3 Eastern Europeans in the top 25. Two of them are brothers, and the other one just moved to NJ. The Klitschkos could beat Ali at this point too, so Holy fighting either one proves nothing.

Posted August 19, 2012 3:41 pm 


Holy should only wish that a Klit does not give him a fight because Holy will get knocked the f out.
He would be better off challenging Povetkin because that fight is a fight Holy could win.
Holy/Povetkin is the way to another HW Belt for Holy.

If it is just about money, he and tyson need to get in shape together and fight like 5 more times all on PPV. Just Tyson vs Holyfield 2 or 3 times a year, throw in a mma fight vs tyson of course.

Posted August 19, 2012 1:04 pm 


Regardless of his age, or his very poor decisions, whatever happened to having to beat a top 10 fighter to get a title shot? And he quit in his last fight, which I think was over a year ago ! It pains me to say this stuff because I basically like the guy.

Posted August 19, 2012 12:12 pm

“Evander Holyfield, 49, is hoping that one of the Klitschko brothers will give him a fight so that Holyfield can try and capture another heavyweight world title before he retires someday.” Uh no, its so he can scrape up enought cash and not have to auction off his boxing memorabilia and other items later on this year. Its a shame that he is desperate for money…as a fan of the sport, we dont wish that on any fighter, but his situation is what it is and risking his life isnt the solution. He needs to put his energy towards making moves and money outside of the ring, period.

Posted August 19, 2012 11:04 am 


According to reports, Holyfield is broke and currently selling his posessions. He doesn’t really have many options but he has to make as much money as possible, fast. That means a title fight. It’s very sad! Holyfield had it all and lived a life style many can only dream of, and now, he’s in a no win situation due to his reckless financial conduct. Overcoming his financial problems at this stage of his life will be his greatest fight. I wish him well!

You’re right, Evander. It would be about the amount money a fight could generate because you and everyone, other than those who would pay to see it, knows you’d suffer a terrible, potentially life-threatening beat-down. It is time for you to find a new line of work, Evander. Start searching now, because your box days have passed long ago.

Evander is a very complex character, he talks about god, quotes scripture, but then has children with women who he is not married to. Evander builds a giant house, a tribute to himself and his accomplishments, It’s much more house than any man would ever need. Bottom line, same old story, fighter makes millions, spends it all and is willing (or must) sacrifice his health to make a buck! Sad!!!

Man earned 250 million dollars in his career. Pissed his money away on car dealerships that he let his retarded brothers run, banged and knocked up every new cutie he met and had a revelation about at a revival. Ended up divorcing and paying droves of women alimony and tens of millions in child support. Lived an unsustainable life style with a 125 room mansion while mismanaging his money. This half brain dead hypocrite has ruined his legacy and now he wants the public to bail him out to buy pay per view fights of his geriatric posing in front of opponents that use him as a punching bag because he has no reflexes.

The only reason Evander watns this fight is for the money. The german fans are naive and would buy a Holyfield fight. they could use footage from 20 years ago to sell it and that would work. Thats why you always see ex champs llike Holmes and Bonecrusher going to fight in Europe. Even RJJ who said he would never fight overseas is doing it now, because they know they cant make money in the US. Evander will be in shape like always but really he just wants the payday to pay for his debts and child support.

Mr. Holyfield, you were a legend back in the 1980s and 1990s, but I don’t want to bash you. I remembered 10 years ago or whatever that you want to retire after you become the world heavyweight champion, but you have your chances to regain your heavyweight title and lost whether you were robbed or not. I want to convince you that you should retire right now because you have nothing to prove to us that you can, but you only want to retire as champion for yourself. Your time is up Mr. Holyfield. Look yourself in the mirror that you don’t have it anymore. Neither of the Klitschko brothers aren’t going to fight you because they don’t want to be responsible if sometime bad happen to you. If one of the Klitschko brothers do, they would pull the one-sided Jack Johnson beating James J. Jeffries, Ezzard Charles’s one-sided beating old Joe Louis, and Larry Holmes’s one-sided beating on Muhammad Ali, but worst. Evander, you want to end up like Jeffries, Louis, and Ali, but worse? I’m not asking you to retire, I’m telling you.

Here is the solution to Holyfield’s problem, after the next fight by either one of the K-brothers, they can throw Holyfield into the ring right after the fight and maybe that will even up the playing field for Holyfield. They can give either of the K-brothers another three rounds to see if they can put Holyfield away. On a more serious note, Holyfield should just get revenge against James “the Tapout” Toney and prove that loss was a fluke because of his asserted shoulder injury. That’s about one of the only fights I give Holyfield the odds to win.
