Holyfield and Valuev to Meet Five Years After The Fight

By Nikita Lukyanov

Former heavyweight champions Evander Holyfield and Nikolai Valuev will meet today in Moscow. Five years have passed since their fight in 2008, when Valuev won by unanimous decision and defended his WBA title. In the capital of Russia, the boxers will give masterclasses and then hold a briefing for mass-media, according to BoxKO.ru.

After that Valuev and Holyfield will move to Barnaul to join a big tournament as special guests on November 15, where the co-organizer of the event is Vlad Hryunov. In the major fight of the night, Svetlana Kulakova will defend her WBA interim light welterweight title against Florence Muthoni from Kenya. Also, WBA #4 lightweight Eduard Troyanovskiy will have his PABA title defense against Michael Odhiambo from Kenya. Russian prospective boxers Fedor Chudinov and Arif Magomedov will fight on the undercard.

"I am glad to support professional Russian boxers and to visit such a wonderful place as Altay, - said Holyfield. - "To be a special guest of the event together with Nikolai Valuev is a double honor. I am ready to meet and chat with to him 5 years after our fight which is remembered by a lot of people, to share the experience and support prospective boxers".

It is a pity 'Vander has to plod around the world picking-up appearance money to sort out his eye-watering tax debts; the guy deserves better. That ghastly press release quote/babble attributed to him surely does not reflect what Real Deal…

Felt bad for Holyfield as it was his last chance for a belt, he did a difficult job only to be robbed of the win. He's pretty classy to have not complained more than he did.
