The Sporting Birthday - Evander Holyfield
Boxing: The 'Real Deal' is 55 today
Evander Holyfield was the only 4 time Heavyweight Champion of the World, and the only Undisputed cruiserweight and heavyweight World Champion in History.
Holyfield had 57 career fights, which is unlikely to be seen again in Heavyweight boxing. He won 44 of those, including the infamous fight with Mike Tyson in 1997 in which Tyson bit off a piece of his ear.
He won his last professional fight in 2011, against Brian Nielsen of Denmark.
Happy birthday Evander!
