Evander Holyfield: Povetkin is a Possibility To Fight Next

By Mel "Sabaka" Ohlhoft

Former four time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29KOs) has issued his request to fight the WBA's new "regular" champion Alexander Povetkin in the fall. Holyfield sat ringside at Erfurt, Germany on Saturday night and watched Povetkin win a twelve round decision over Ruslan Chagaev to capture the title. Once the decision was announced, Holyfield, 48-years-old, entered the ring to give his congrats to the new champion and the two of them posed for photos.

Holyfield came to the post-fight press conference and told international reporters that Povetkin, because of his new title, was a good option for his next return. Holyfield wants to fight against in the fall, but it's not clear if Povetkin is going to defend his title before early 2012. The availability of television dates could force a 2012 return for Povetkin.

"I think he's a good fighter. Like I've alway said, my goal is to become the world champion again. Alexander is a possible option,' Holyfield said.

Evander holyfield isnt even an active fighter he'd only get the fight off his name... sad thing is if he managed to win he could legitimately fight vitali who d be 41 by then

[QUOTE=Check]I'd love to see it! I know we know how pathetic this division is but to see Great Grandpa Holyfield get one of the belts will just completely cement the notion that it's the Klitschkos then a bunch of bums. I'll buy this ppv like I bought Holyfield V Valuev where Holy got robbed![/QU...

a situation like this is the only thing I got against boxing. Evander most certainly does not in any way shape or form deserve a chance at a title belt, even if it is one that was made up to make money for the WBA. Hell, give Chris Arreola a chance before Holyfield.

lol guys holyfield is not THAT bad! he will almost certainly lose to povetkin, but his style of fighting will keep him from being KO'd. . . unless wladimir or vitali gets ahold of him. . .
