Then, while attending the Olympic games in London, a reporter doing a “man on the street” interview talked to the Olympian, but didn’t identify him by the time the clip aired. He was identified simply as a tourist. With a man of Holyfield’s physical size and stature, you have to wonder what in the heck the interviewer was smoking.
Now, the rest of Holyfield’s most prized possessions will soon be up for bids. Because of Holyfield’s financial troubles, he’s being forced to sell of all sorts of valuables including the boxing gloves from the heavyweight bout in which Mike Tyson infamously bit off part of his ear, championship belts, and even his Olympic medal.
Holyfield’s bronze medal from the 1984 Olympics also be included in the sale, according to the auction house handling Holyfield’s estate. We’re not sure what a Bronze medal fetches on the secondary market, but we hope that it can make a dent his vast tax and child support obligations. When you make the kids, you better be ready to feed them, and Evander didn’t understand that when he created 11 different children.
Holyfield’s career record is 44-10-2 with 29 knockouts. He has won titles in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, where he beat Tyson, George Foreman, Larry Holmes and Riddick Bowe. His last fight took place in 2011.
