Holyfield was the greatest cruiserweight champion ever, one of the best heavyweights in the 90s and one of the greatest boxers of all-time.
Courageous, durable and very exciting, Holyfield always gave fans full value for their money.
Was the first undisputed world Cruiserweight Champion and the first 4-time Heavyweight Champion.
During his 27 year career, Holyfield has beaten a slew of top fighters including Dwight Muhammad Qawi, Michael Dokes, James 'Buster' Douglas, George Foreman, Alex Stewart, Ray Mercer, Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, Michael Moorer, John Ruiz, Hasim Rahman and Mike Tyson. Holyfield drew with Lennox Lewis in their first encounter and lost the rematch by unanimous decision.
The Real Deal fought the best of his day. By the time he fought Lennox Lewis (1999), he was already on the downside of his career.
Holyfield earned high acclaim by fighting only the best in his sport
In what will go down in history as one of boxing's biggest nights, Holyfield upset Mike Tyson via a 10th Round KO to win the WBA and IBF belts, November 11, 1996.
On December 20, 2008, 46 year old Holyfield fought WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev and lost by a highly controversial majority decision after a relatively uneventful bout. Many analysts were outraged at the decision, thinking Holyfield had clearly won.
