Go head, Evander…after all the Baby Mama Drama and When The Checks Stop Coming In stories, we’re glad to see Mr. Holyfield on the come up:

Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is using George Foreman’s comeback more than 15 years ago as inspiration.

The 47-year-old Holyfield (43-10-2, 28 KOs) knocked out 41-year-old Frans Botha with 2:05 left in the eighth round to claim the WBF heavyweight championship on Saturday night. Holyfield (43-10-2) knocked the defending champion down 31 seconds earlier with a right to the chin. “I’m going to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world,” Holyfield said.

Two judges, Jerry Roth and Glenn Feldman, had Botha ahead 67-66 when the fight was stopped. The other judge, Herb Santee, had it 69-64 for Holyfield.

“I’m happy Botha gave me an opportunity,” Holyfield said. “When people talk about you, it’s who I fought. I fought the best.”

Too bad no one is really checking for those “Heavyweights” anymore, but congrats to Evander…definitely a good look for him.

    Damn…still got a body of a G_d…..but it’s the brain that I am worried about…George Foreman knew when to “fold them” but Ali did not and look at Ali though…..Good Luck Evander…you got mad childsupport checks that are awaiting for you.

  • RazeKane

    CAN EVANDER STILL FIGHT – YES
    IS HIS BRAIN CELLS DAMAGED – YES
    IS HE A DESTINED TO ACQUIRE PARKINSON’S DISEASE JUST LIKE ALI – YES

    He’s the one that ended Tyson’s career.

    I hope he doesn’t become another Mohamaad Ali…..men are to old to be getting hit upside the head.

  • I'm Just Sayin

  • early grave

    this old fool is fighting himself into an early grave for a woman who cares only for his money

  • smittyt

    I love to see white boys get knocked out

  • ...*MOcarsMOclothesMOjewelsMOdoe*...

    gotta make the money some how.

  • DR.FUNK

    I feel sadness.

  • Mr.uPPeR CuTTs

    I heard Evander knocked dis cat out in the 8th.

    Tyson knocked Botha out horrendously bad in the 5th. way back in the day.

    Evander has worse money problems than Tyson and he has way more kids too.

    Congrats to the Old Champ. even thought Botha’s title was one of those LOW rank championships, Evander still showed his tank isn’t completely empty.

  • Mr.uPPeR CuTTs

    “I’m going to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world,” Holyfield said.

    lol
    now if he really thinks hes going to be the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, hes really SMOKIN it. That isn’t going to happen. This title is a low level. When he becomes one of the TOP rank holders of the WBA or WBC belts, then I’ll give him the upmost props, but i really know this won’t happen.

  • Keep Lil Wayne Free

    They both need the money, so just leave them alone!

  • Theorius Stylez

    Get your education,Boys. This poor misguided soul will have to be carried out of the ring on a stretcher. He has so many babymommas to pay, child support for about 10 kids all over the US, attorneys fees, accountants to pay off, bad investment deals gone airy, and years of financial problems from blowing money on stupid ish. Most of these guys die broke. How sad, but boys, take notes. Especially if you plan to be an athlete.

  • Moreaces

    His body is still in good shape

    @Theorius
    It’s not just the athletes who need to stop spreading their seed everywhere.. Men in general need to stop giving women so much power over their lives… Many of society’s women now just want a sponsor…. They have no goals and dreams of their own to accomplish.. It’s all about leaching off somebody else….I refuse to have a child just because I can…..
