Holyfield Backing Williams over Klitschko
By Rick Reeno
Four time heavyweight champion, Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield is yet another fighter jumping on the Danny Williams train. First it was Lennox Lewis, now Holyfield is picking Williams as well. Holyfield told the press in the UK that he picks Danny Williams to beat Vitali Klitschko when the two fighters meet in December on HBO pay per view.
"If he fights the way he fought Tyson he's got a very good chance of winning. Klitschko doesn't appear to be a good inside fighter and if Williams works him inside and puts a lot of pressure on him his chances are looking great." said Holyfield
Holyfield admitted that Klitschko is a totally different breed of fighter from Tyson, but the end result should be the same.
"Even though Tyson's a different kind of fighter, Williams definitely showed he can endure some pretty hard shots against him. And although he's fighting a guy who's not 5ft 10in but 6ft 7in, I still think it will be a good match-up."
If the rematch happens, will he say the same. I wonder if he bet on it.Comment by Silencer on 11-10-2004

Anyone rember who Holyfield said would win between Lewis-Tyson, he said Tyson. Lewis said Sanders would defeat Vit. These are just silly predictions.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (8)
