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.”

If there was ever proof that giving 10% of your income to a Prosperity Preacher is not a good idea then all anyone has to do is look at Evander Holyfield. In a climatic legal setting that once featured Evander Holyfldield, Janice Holyfield (his 2nd wife), Judge Miller, and Creflo Dollar, the actual battle was over the amount of money that was donated to one church.
He is an American professional boxer and a former Undisputed World Champion in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, earning him the nickname "The Real Deal." After winning the bronze medal in the Light Heavyweight division at the 1984 Summer Olympics, he debuted as a professional at the age of 21. He moved to the cruiserweight division in 1985 and won his first title the following year, when he defeated Dwight Muhammad Qawi for the WBA Cruiserweight belt. He would then go on to defeat Ricky Parkey and Carlos De Leon to win the Lineal, IBF and WBC titles, becoming the Undisputed Cruiserweight Champion.
He moved up to heavyweight in 1988, defeating Buster Douglas for the The Ring, Lineal, WBC, WBA and IBF titles in 1990. He also had other notable victories over fighters such as: George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, Mike Tyson, Michael Moorer, John Ruiz, Michael Dokes and Hasim Rahman. He is the only 4-time World Heavyweight Champion, winning the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles in 1990, the WBA and IBF titles in 1993 and the WBA title in 1996 and 2000.
Raised without his father, he gave his life to Christ as a young boy. Early in life, he learned the power of prayer and turned to it when going through tough situations such as divorce, business failure, and the accidental killing of his older brother. On his boxing shorts and robe, he has the words inscribed, "I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me." After one of his most famous fights with Mike Tyson, he said, "I prayed during training, I prayed when I got into the ring, I prayed when I was fighting him." He has often said, "Boxing is 90 percent spiritual and 10 percent physical. It's the spiritual aspect that gives the edge and an extra burst of energy to draw from. My victories are not achieved by my might, nor by my power, but by the Spirit of Christ who strengthens me." His name is Evander Holyfield.
