In a recent interview, the legendary Evander Holyfield talked about his rivalry with Lennox Lewis and their two fights
There’s life in the old dog yet. Evander Holyfield, all-time great and Hall of Famer who retired back in 2011, remains insistent he should have been given the verdict over Lennox Lewis in their rematch for the unified world heavyweight titles over 20 years ago.
In an absorbing interview with Radio Rahim for Seconds Out (Lewis-related video below), Holyfield reflected on the initial split draw verdict with Lewis that many felt should have been awarded to the Brit, and their return, which appeared much closer but saw "The Real Deal" drop a clear unanimous decision.
Holyfield talks about how Lewis made their dispute personal before the first meeting and defeated an ailing version of the American in that contest.
