Evander Holyfield Almost 50: I Still Want The Klitschkos!

By Yuri Tarantin,

Former four time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs) was ringside in Donetsk to watch Paulie Malinaggi (31-4, 7 KOs) win the WBA welterweight title with a ninth round stoppage of Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-1, 21 KOs).

Holyfield, who turns 50-years-old on October 19th, is not event thinking of retirement. He still wants to fight heavyweight champions Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko.

"I am ready to fight for a world title, and if the Klitschko brothers are willing to fight me in the ring, I'll do everything in my power to win. I just need their approval to do the fight," Holyfield said.

Holyfield shouldn't fight the Klitchkos. He might fall sleep in the ring due to being bored.

Holyfield can't look worse or do worse than all the other tomato cans we've seen. He will be in shape, his body will be fit. He will come to fight. Let Evander have both 40 yr old Klitschkos Bros. Evander…
