Holyfield's End Nears: I Don't Have Much Fight Left in Me

Four-time world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29KOs) is finally nearing the end of his career. Holyfield, who turns 50 next week, told BBC Sport that he's finally nearing the end of the road. Financial troubles have kept Holyfield fighting for the last few years and the boxing has scheduled an auction to sell off some of his prized possessions. Holfyield turned pro in 1984 and during his long career he became the undisputed heavyweight and cruiserweight champion.

"Right now I'm winding it down, I can't get the fights I want," said Holyfield. "I haven't made it official but the time is coming that I will. I don't have that much fight left in me."

"It's not sad at all [about the auction], I wouldn't do it if it was sad. All that stuff just represents the things that I did. The more stuff gets out there the more people will realize what I accomplished in 41 years of boxing. People wouldn't get the opportunity to see it if it was in my home. I've still got more than enough stuff for my kids and my grandkids.

"I make money, I'm a money magnet. But the money wouldn't hurt. But I'm not concerned about what anybody else thinks, I try to do the right thing and that's it."

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts;12599411]Stfu you fake ass self righteous degenerate.[/QUOTE] Uhh no, he's pretty much right. Holyfield had the chance to live the American dream, better yet, the American fantasy but he blew it all away.
