Default Did Holyfield duck Ruddock?

Someone told me Evander Holyfield ducked Rauor Ruddock (he told me Bowe ducked Ruddock too) i don't believe it but i can't find anything about it.

True or not true?
Does anyone got a link and/or now the backgrounds?

Ruddock the one-handed Canadian who beat Junkie Mike Dokes then got butchered by Mike Tyson... Holyfield & Bowe would have crucified Ruddock

Yes and no.. Holyfield was another fighter who ducked Don King and the WBC.. They took him to court and tried to strip him of the WBC belt over it.. Ruddock was by then, managed by Don King, who had ordered Holyfield to defend against him, but Evander chose to fight Bowe instead.. In the meantime the court ordered that Holyfield should remain as champ.. Had Ruddock stayed clear of King, he just may have got a title shot on his resume..

This was the 2nd court-case in as many years, the 1st being, when King had him unlawfully stripped for choosing to fight Foreman, instead of Tyson, and again the court went in Holyfield's favour..

In 1992, the WBC threatened to strip Evander Holyfield of his title for defending it against Riddick Bowe instead of Razor Ruddock. Holyfield obtained a court order to stop the organization. In a taped deposition for the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Holyfield stated that the WBC wanted him to defend his championship against Ruddock because Ruddock was managed by Don King.[5]

"the WBC ordered a title eliminator between No. 1 ranked Razor Ruddock and No. 2 ranked Riddick Bowe, which was accepted by both in writing. After making such commitment, Bowe decided to pull out of the agreement and instead fight Pierre Coetzer of South Africa. The WBC then ordered the eliminator to be between Ruddock and No. 3 ranked Lennox Lewis, with the winner to be the official challenger for the world championship; Lewis won the fight. Main Events, who had the promotional rights to Holyfield, informed the WBC that Holyfield would not fight Lewis because he did not have a marketable name, but would fight Bowe instead. The Holyfield vs Bowe fight was authorized by the WBC with the condition that the winner fight Lewis. Bowe won the title, but instead of honoring his written agreement to fight Lewis, he refused to pay the WBC sanctioning fee and threw the championship belt into a London waste basket.

Riddick Bowe, just elevated to the No. 2 heavyweight contender's ranking by the World Boxing Council, is not signed to fight Donovan "Razor" Ruddock."There is absolutely no fight," Rock Newman, Bowe's manager, said yesterday. "It is a 100 percent figment of Murad Muhammad's warped imagination."Murad Muhammad, Ruddock's promoter, said Wednesday that an agreement had been reached on the fight, but not the site.*
http://articles.baltimoresun.com/keyword/riddick-bowe
Bowe wanted nothing to do with Ruddock, who he saw as a high risk opponent.

Holyfield didn't want to fight Ruddock, who he thought didn't deserve a shot after losing back to back to Tyson. He wanted to fight the more dangerous Bowe, to help salvage his rep, which had taken a bad beating. First by the fact that he went the distance with two middleage guys (Foreman/Holmes) and then the fact that he had badly struggled with a journeyman (Cooper).

The words Holyfield and Duck don't even belong in the same sentence.

You can't accuse Holyfield of ducking anyone.
