I hope Holyfield loses. I don't care ATM if he wins he brings the title back to the USA. I simply don't like Holyfield. I hope he gets beat from ring post to ring post.

How could anybody not love Holyfield. Guy has more heart than most any fighter I've ever seen. What I hate is that he's still fighting, and it's just sad now. He's gonna have problems down the road for sure.

Well, for one, he's an extremely dirty fighter. He's worse than Tyson is at times. His head is a 3rd arm for him. Also, Ive seen about 3-5 guys with just as much, or more heart than him. I will give him this though, if you pay to see him fight, then 95% of the time you will get your money's worth out of him.

Holyfield is dirtier then tyson? No Comment...:cheeky4:

HOLYFIELD IS THE MAN!

If he can still be alive after the bowe fights then he gets an A+ in my book.

No, but ESPN was putting up big numbers in efforts to snatch this fight. They have tried to land the rights to Holyfield's upcoming fights like lunatics. They even showed the replay of the Holyfield vs Savarese fight three days later on Classic. I think that ESPN believes in Holyfield's "resurrection," and they want on the gravy train. Also, Holyfield represents a possible re-emergenge of the heavyweight division if he is indeed able to unify the titles. It would certainly generate more mass popularity if that quest was shown on basic cable like ESPN rather than through PPV. Just a thought.

At times, yes. The way he uses his head more than his fists. He's gotten 2-3 stoppages because he butted someone and they got cut, so he just opened it up more with punches.
