Evander Holyfield Reveals The Best Fighter He Ever Faced

Image
Photo: Instagram/Evander Holyfield Boxing legend Evander Holyfield has faced some of the sport's biggest names, and he has now revealed who he thinks was the best of them all. Holyfield, one of the most decorated boxers ever, ended his amateur career with an Olympic bronze medal. He then became a standout talent in the cruiserweight division before moving up to become a four-time heavyweight champion, despite being smaller than many of his opponents. Until Oleksandr Usyk matched his feat, Holyfield was the only man to achieve undisputed titles in both cruiserweight and heavyweight. Holyfield is well known for his infamous fight with Mike Tyson , where Tyson bit his ear, and for facing other legends like Lennox Lewis and George Foreman. But in an interview with Ring Magazine’s ‘Best I Faced’ series, Holyfield named Riddick Bowe as the greatest opponent he ever fought. Photo: Instagram/Evander Holyfield "I would say Bowe. I had three fights with Bowe. He was very competitive,

He had attended another Davis fight last year and joined many NBA stars in Vegas for this year's match. Sitting close to the action, Leonard was photographed wearing a brown short-sleeved shirt, black pants, and black sunglasses.

Additional footage from that night showed Leonard with his hair tied back, as he often does during the offseason. A TikTok video from VegasMIB, who filmed several celebrities outside the fight, clearly showed Leonard’s hair tied back, debunking the viral rumor.

Gervonta Davis Surpasses Floyd Mayweather In Knockout Wins

Image
Photo: Instagram/Gervonta Davis Gervonta Davis continued his impressive knockout streak on Saturday night with a stunning eighth-round victory over Frank Martin. This win allowed him to retain his WBA lightweight world title and marked his 28th knockout in 30 professional fights. Davis' knockout ratio now stands at 93.3%, the second-best among active world champions, just behind Artur Beterbiev's 100%. Davis' victory also brought another milestone: he has now surpassed his former mentor, Floyd Mayweather , in career knockout wins. Mayweather, who retired with a perfect 50-0 record, had 27 knockouts. His last knockout came against Conor McGregor in 2017. Mayweather was known for his strong punching power in the lighter weight classes but relied more on defense and counterpunching as he moved up in weight. In contrast, Davis combines Mayweather's defensive skills with a powerful knockout punch, making him one of the most feared fighters in the ring today. Photo: Instagr

Image
Photo: Instagram/James Toney   A Hall of Fame boxer has boldly claimed that none of today's heavyweight fighters are on his level. The heavyweight division recently saw Oleksandr Usyk defeat Tyson Fury , handing Fury his first career loss and making Usyk the first undisputed champion since Lennox Lewis nearly 25 years ago. Anthony Joshua also lost his titles to Usyk in 2021 and again in their rematch the following year.  Joshua has since started training with Ben Davison and appears to be regaining his form. Despite these developments, former three-weight world champion James Toney doesn't think much of the current heavyweight scene.  Photo: Instagram/James Toney In an interview with Pro Boxing Fans, Toney was asked which current heavyweight would give him the toughest fight. His answer was blunt: “Did you see how well I fought against Holyfield? I’m knocking everybody out, period. Nobody can keep me off, period. There is nobody in this era that is at my level, period.

Image
Photo: Instagram/Angel Reese The highly anticipated rematch between the Chicago Sky and Indiana Fever on Sunday afternoon saw tensions rise when Angel Reese hit Caitlin Clark in the head during a block attempt. This incident led to a flagrant foul in the third quarter of the Fever's 91-83 victory. When asked about the flagrant foul after the game, Reese was quick to defend herself. "It was a basketball play," Reese said. "I can't control the refs. They obviously affected the game a lot tonight." Reese pointed out that the officiating seemed uneven. The Sky were called for 21 personal fouls, while the Fever had 17. Both Reese and rookie Kamilla Cardoso ended the game with five fouls each. "I think we went up really strong a lot of times, and we didn’t get a lot of calls," Reese said. "Some people got a special whistle. But just being able to play hard as best as we can."
