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.
