SORT BY Relevancy
In a bold statement in a recent interview, former 4-time Heavyweight Boxing Champion Evander Holyfield calls out the corrupt boxing officials by stating that the potential Floyd Mayweather - Manny Pacquiao blockbuster mega-fight will be decided by the powers that be and NOT by the combatants and the display of their skills.
For a man with such credibility to say such a thing should make us all take note and look deeper into the corruption that exists not only in the sport of boxing but in all sports in general.

Despite growing up poor—and not meeting his dad until the age of 21—the only boxer to win the World Heavyweight title four times says he was never bitter. “I did have a mother. And my mother instilled in me that you have to forgive,” he tells Dr. Blogstein host David Brown. "When you forgive, then you can set yourself free. People who don’t forgive, they always using a part of they mind by thinkin’ about ‘this.’ They always talkin’ about, ‘Aw, this happened to me.’ I never said I didn’t make it because I came from the ghetto, I was black, I was this and that. That’s no excuse, when there’s forgiveness.”
