Former two division beltholder Evander Holyfield was probably considered long-retired by many, but in fact has only just made it official this week. Five-time heavyweight champion Holyfield, who turns 52 in October, made it official when asked if he would be seen in the ring again.

"No, I'm done," said Holyfield, who will be inducted into the Nevada Hall of Fame on Aug. 9 in Las Vegas. "They're putting me in the Hall of Fame on the 9th, so it will be official. Won't nobody fight me, and now, I don’t want to get hit."

"It just started happening," said Holyfield (44-10-2, 29KOs) , regarding his thoughts on leaving the game.

"The guys [at Dynasty Boxing] were waiting on me to be part of this thing, and I told them that I would. They said, 'Have you retired?' I said I'd be retired that day. I'd say that's it."

Probably the greatest champion since Larry Holmes, enjoy your retirement.

Enjoy retirement Champ! When I think of Prime Evander's legacy, (Bowe 3x, Lewis 2x, Tyson 2x, Moore 2x, Qawi 2x, Foreman, Mercer, etc), I feel a lot of humility and respect for this WARRIOR, who ducked nobody. I do have to say that, on occasion, I think he might've been a bit of a dirty fight...

His reaction to the Tyson bites made me go "ouch".

Shame he took so long, had he controlled his dick and not produced so many babies he'd not have all the expenses today. A future HOF in my opinion but one who hurt his legacy by sticking around too long.

Enjoy your retirement champ. One of the last true greats who fought all comers and left it all in the ring every time. A real warrior.
