Evander Holyfield is on a mission to become the oldest heavyweight champion in the history of boxing. The 48-year old is still pounding away as he seeks to win one of the major boxing titles to surpass George Foreman’s old ass after he defeated Michael Moorer for the title at age 45. On Saturday, Holyfield will fight 38-year old Sherman Williams in West Virginia, and if Holyfield wins, he’ll fight 45-year old Brian Nielsen in Denmark on March 5. Then if he wins that fight, he’ll take on 97-year old Irv Goldblatt in Boca Raton, Florida.
Actually, according to various reports, if Holyfield wins these next two fights, he’ll get his shot to break Foreman’s record, as the WBC (the World Boxing Council and not the World Barista Championship) has agreed to let Holyfield fight current champion Vitali Klitschko (Ed. – Hehehehehehehehehehehe… Klit). And Holyfield believes that people will pay big money to watch this happen.
