Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is hoping to line up a world championship fight if he can beat Brian Nielsen in a non-title bout Saturday. Brian Nielsen (64-2, 43 KOs) acknowledged that Holyfield is the favorite but promises the fight won’t be a walkover.
Holyfied is trying to surpass George Foreman as the oldest fighter in the history of the sport to win a significant world title, following a then-45-year-old Foremanâ€™s knock out Michael Moorer in the 10th round on November 5, 1994, that made him the eldest man to win a heavyweight crown.
