Holyfield Saves 12 Items, But Auction Moves Forward

Evander Holyfield has saved, for now, 12 treasured mementoes from being auctioned text week.

Hundreds of items from the former heavyweight champion’s collection will go up for sale but Holyfield has obtained a court ruling that excludes a dozen.

"Though the judge approved a temporary restraining order to exclude just 12 items from our November 30 auction, we will continue with the auction where we will be selling over 400 lots of Holyfield memorabilia," the chief of the auction house said on Thursday.

Darren Julien said he remained confident that those items would also be auctioned at a future date, when the court battles have been settled.

"We are confident that we will ultimately prevail when these frivolous claims are actually decided on the merits. We fully expect and intend to sell these few items in a future auction," Julien said.

The auction was originally slated to include robes and trunks worn by Holyfield for his 1996 upset victory over Mike Tyson, and gloves worn in his 1997 re-match with Tyson in which Tyson famously bit Holyfield's ear.

Holyfield sued to stop the auction earlier this month, saying he didn't give permission to sell most of the items.

Julien's has since sued a Holyfield's assistant who was tasked with confirming the history of each item and securing Holyfield's approval for its sale.

"As to the lawsuits, we sincerely regret that Evander has chosen to engage in litigation, especially given the hundreds of thousands of dollars we have expended and advanced to Evander, and the press coverage and promotion we have obtained to make this the most amazing auction possible," Julien said.
