Rick Roufus Still Pushing For Evander Holyfield Clash

Los Angeles, CA- With all the changes in the world of boxing and not enough heavy weights that make for a good fight for either champion, it only made sense for the best of both worlds to collide in the fight of the decade. Evander Holyfield was to fight prospect Krzysztof Zimnoch (15-0-1, 11 KOs) on an October card in Poland. Zimnoch's promoter rejected Holyfield's financial demand and sent him a counter-offer. At this point, with the rumors of Holyfield’s financial troubles and the publics demand for an all out battle with Rick Roufus, this may be Holyfield’s best bet, a pay per view fight that will be affordable to the entire world to watch. With over 300-million kick boxing enthusiasts worldwide this would be a great pay per view opportunity. Two of the top fighters in the world representing the U.S.A. will fight for the Inter-League battle of the world. 

This is Rick Roufus’ second public challenge to Holyfield. Facebook fans along with Twitter and Boxing websites want to see both fighters in the ring. With Rick Roufus at 47 years of age, 218 pounds at 6ft., and Evander Holyfiled at 50 years young, at 218 pounds and 6ft. 2 in., it was only inevitable for the two champs to finally meet in the ring.

A true traditional boxing champion, Evander Holyfield is an American professional boxer with 57 fights, 44 wins, 29 by knockout and 14 World Titles. He is the former undisputed world champion in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions, earning him the nickname “The Real Deal”.

Kick Boxer Rick “The Jet” Roufus is an American Kick boxing champion and one of the most famous kick boxers in the United States. With 78 fights, 65 wins, 44 by knockout and 10 World Titles. Rick also recorded 18 professional boxing fights with 11 wins by knockout and won the 1996 WBC Continental Americas Cruiserweight Championship.

The Roufas camp has made numerous attempts at contacting the Holyfield camp. “We want to set this fight up for October of this year, said Fred Zermeno. We have sent out messages to many of Holyfield’s people and they seem very interested but have not given us a solid answer. Roufus has many fans world wide and lived in Atlanta where Holyfiled currently resides. “We could fight in Atlanta, Los Angeles or Nevada”, said Roufus, “We would make sure we work closely with the Holyfield camp for the city of host, now let’s get it on”, added Roufus.
