Donald Looking To Be Spoiler
By Rick Reeno
Larry Donald spoke with the Cincinnati media during an open workout in the Winton Terrace Boxing Club and told them that he is planning to help Holyfield retire from Boxing for good.
Donald feels that none of their past accomplishments or defeats will come into play, he said that their performances against common opponent Riddick Bowe mean nothing. The one common goal that Donald and Holyfield share is the fact that both fighters want to be the undisputed champion of the world.
"I'm still trying to reach my goals. I'm still trying to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. This fight is big for me. This is a great opponent for me to open up my wings and fly like an eagle. I'm not taking Evander lightly by any means. I'm going to fight the Evander that fought Riddick Bowe and all those other tough fighters. But I definitely feel I can be the guy to help him hang up his gloves" said Donald
Donald admitted that after his KO loss to Vitali Klitshcko, he walked away from Boxing to get his head together and feels that now is his time to shine.
"After Klitschko, I needed to take some time off for myself, to get myself together."
Donald said in closing that he felt that his jab would be the key factor in this fight. He feels that above all, the jab will see him through Holyfield on November 13 and there is nothing Evander can do to stop it.
