Evander Holyfield Knocks Brian Nielsen Out in Denmark

Copenhagen, Denmark - Former four time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29KOs)  stopped Brian Nielsien (63-3, 43KOs) in the tenth round of the fight at Koncerthuset. Holyfield pushed Nielsen into a corner and battered him with combinations until the referee stopped the contest. Nielsen was fighting for the first time since 2002. The output of Holyfield was fresher and much better than his previous ring outing against Sherman Williams in January, where the 48-year-old Holyfield took some punishment. The 46-year-old Nielsen will likely head back into retirement.

Brian Nielsen is joke, fat and only doing it cause he needed money. Holyfield used him as an sparring partner.

Vitali is getting up there in years and isn't as sharp as he used to be. I wouldn't mind a Holyfield/Vitali bout one bit.

This fight is terrible. Other ex-Euro-Bums are gonna see the money Nielsen made and come out of retirement knowing their silly fans will pay to see them. Johnny Nelson's name was recently out there... Maybe Henry Maske and Sven Ottke…
