The less said about this the better so i'll be quick, Holyfield needs to be protected from himself before he ends up getting seriously hurt, its been proven in his last few fights that he can no longer compete at the highest level and expect to win. Holyfield is a modern great and the ultimate warrior but he needs to realise enough is enough and put it to bed, the man must be crazy! Whats he got left to prove? That he can still take a good beating. Does he really wanna end up punch drunk (more than what he already is) or worse. If the romours are true about his financial situation then i can understand why he wants one more big payday, but at the risk of serious injury? no way. But with his reputation he will probably be allowed to fight the giant and will no doubt lose widley on points (if Valuev takes it easy).

PLEASE! PLEASE! Retire Evander, there must be some other way he could make money with his celebrity. As said above he would lose a landslide points decision against Nicolai, maybe a group of boxing fans could club together and give him a £ each to stop him?

Or he must have a wealthy friend who could help him out? Even Tyson seems to have seen sense and stopped fighting now.

Its such a shame, Holyfield used to be my favourite heavyweight after the Bowe fights and his wins over Tyson - he truly was the toughest, bravest and best fighter in the division in modern times. Unfortunately he is now making a mockery of the sport we love and it does boxing no favours. I would much rather see him taking an active coaching or management role that would see him keep in touch with the sport, being remembered for the great fighter he WAS!! Someone please stop the insanity berfore boxing is the laughing stock of global sport.
