Pushing 50 years old, Evander Holyfield is making yet another comeback. A legacy that includes being a 5-time heavyweight boxing champion can’t be left to rest in peace. This sometimes happens when you can’t pay your bills, your palatial estate gets foreclosed on, and you’re getting sued for debts you couldn’t afford. Since someone is going to pay a healthy purse of millions to a name, even if they are beyond beyond their prime, it’s not unreasonable that Evander Holyfield would step back into the ring. Holyfield said:
“My goal has always been to retire as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. I’ve taken care of myself and I don’t feel it’s a problem if you’ve taken care of yourself.”
Having watched the video and realizing that he is one old boxer that can still form a coherent sentence and doesn’t shake uncontrollably from the brutality suffered over a long career, it’s hard to disagree with him. Evander Holyfield is slated to fight Sherman “Tank” Williams on January 22nd, 2011.
