Klitschko: $20 Million is Not Enough To Face Holyfield

By Ruslan Chikov

The WBC champion at heavyweight, Vitali Klitschko, gave his opinion on the comments that recently appeared on BoxingScene.com from Evander Holyfield. The legendary Holyfield, 48-years-old, said either of the Klitschko brothers could earn $20 million dollars if they give him the opportunity to win a title. Older brother Vitali doesn't care about the $20 million dollars. He says the money is secondary in this situation. If Holyfield builds up his status and applies himself to obtain a high WBC ranking, only then will Vitali consider such a fight.

"In order for Holyfield to be able to fight with one of the Klitschko brothers, he needs to get into the top ten world rankings. If you are only thinking about the money, you are sure to lose," Klitschko told KP.

To be fair, Thompson beat Chazz Whiterspoon, who is decent, and if he's not fighting better competition I think it's because noone wants to fight him, he's a high risk/low reward opponent.

[QUOTE=blackirish137;10055734]no way, Holyfields already gotten millions in his career, if he hasnt earned a title shot then he shouldnt get one. guys that dont get paydays and are still good fighters deserve to get shots like this. Like Tony Thompson.[/QUOTE]…
