Klitschko Tells Holyfield: I Won't Fight You For Any Amount

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (44-2, 40KOs) has no interest in facing former four time beltholder Evander Holyfield. During several recent interviews, Holyfield demanded a fight with Vitali and his younger brother Wladimir Klitschko.

Holyfield told press members that Vitali could earn $20 million dollars by fighting him. Vitali has refused the offer and doesn't care about the money.

"Many, many times Holyfield has said that he wants to fight with me or my brother - but I refuse to go against him in the ring. He is my idol. I can't do it for any amount of money," Vitali said.

Vitali returns on September 8th against Manuel Charr (21-0, 11KOs) in Moscow, Russia.

Holyfield should retire. he's been on a losing streak. Hopkins is still winning against younger opponents... there's really no excuse why Hopkins/ Ward can't be made if there was enough money in the pot

Anyone with the common sense would be against this fight. Holyfield is a legend. No need for the shameless beating of old man.
