Evander Holyfield Talks To TBC – Former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield was centerstage this past weekend in Canastota, New York, as the International Boxing Hall of Fame held their annual induction ceremonies. Holyfield entered the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility, leading a strong class that also included Mexico’s Marco Antonio Barrera and Johnny Tapia of the United States.
Holyfield’s fights against Riddick Bowe, Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis are among the most memorable of the era and he now joins all three of those men enshrined in Canastota. Other Hall of Famers that Holyfield met include Dwight Muhammad Qawi, George Foreman, and Larry Holmes. He enters the Hall with a career mark of 44-10-2.
