I heard that Evander Holyfield is fighting someone this weekend in Russia on pay per view. Even better than that I heard it is for some heavyweight championship. I cant believe this senior is still trying to fight people. I would not pay to see this. In fact I wouldn't watch it for free. Is anyone paying for this fight?

I saw an ad a couple of weeks ago, but don't remember the details. But yes, he's fighting. I think pretty much all championships are on pay per view these days. I don't think Holyfield is too old to be entertaining, but I wouldn't pay to watch it either. George Foreman boxed well into his 40's.

I thought Holyfield was washed up a long time ago, as shown by the whipping that he took at the hands of condition-challenged James Toney. He was never an exciting fighter with all the holding, so as usual, I won't watch this fight.

Evander Holyfield

TBH I think he is laughable at best at this stage.

Absolutely insane. Evander cant even get a pay per view championship fight in the states. Who has ever heard of such a thing. I hope he wins in all honesty so the man can simply retire. All he wants to do is retire Heavyweight Champion. Let him do it for petes sake and put us all out of our misery.

Default Evander

Yes George Foreman did fight into his late 40's and to this day holds the record of the oldest Heavy weight champ of all time, but George Foreman did take a very long break from boxing,10 years off actually he retired in 1977 and did not return until 1987. Also Foreman didnt take the beatings that Holyfield has, different styles also. Foreman is a big heavyweight while Evander is a smaller, more of a come at you type guy, So Evanders style caused him to take much more physical abuse then did Big George! I could see Evander winning another title, but he said his goal is to win back all the titles, he could mean 3 or 4 of them, that wont happen. He should have retired long ago and hopefully he walks away ok after the fight this weekend. Talking about Evander and Foreman, does anybody remember when those two fought, that was a very good fight, even in that fight Foreman landed some bombs, yet Evander did land a heavy amount also.

So what was the result of this fight? Never even heard anything about it. So sad. I guess I could look it up online somewhere. LOL

The result is that Holyfield was too old and slow, and lost decisively, though he wasn't knocked out.

Default another loss

Yep another expected loss on Holyfields record and he says " why quit " he claims he going to keep fighting until he wins that title. What a joke! Some of these guys never know when its enough. A decision loss is exactly what i expected.
