[9.0] EVANDER HOLYFIELD 57-44(29)-10-2-1 [Heavyweight & Cruiserweight & Light-Heavyweight]: Bert Randolph Sugar - Al Bernstein - Evander Holyfield -   

 

He is on the cusp … He is at Number Eleven [heavyweights].  He is one of the greats.  Bert Randolph Sugar

 

 

v Riddick Bowe I: One of the best heavyweight fights I have ever seen.  Al Bernstein

 

 

They don’t show Olympic boxing on TV in prime time.  They haven’t done that since 1988.  In 1992, they showed one: Oscar de la Hoya.  In 1996, they didn’t show it.  In 2000, they didn’t show it.  In 2004, they didn’t show it.  In 2008, they did not even mention boxing at all.  You would think the United States didn’t have a boxing team in 2008.  Evander Holyfield

 

 

The game’s been good to me and I hope I’ve been good to the game.  I’m 50 years old and I’ve pretty much did everything that I wanted to do in boxing.  Evander Holyfield
