Holyfield returns to the ring!

Evander Holyfield, 48, is returning to the ring ultimately in an attempt to regain the WBC Heavyweight Championship Belt and at the same time become the oldest to accomplish that feat. George Foreman holds the record for the oldest heavyweight champion at 45-years old when he beat Michael Moorer in 1994.

Holyfield has to beat 38-year old Sherman Williams tommorrow(Sat Jan 22)  in West Virginia, and 45-year old Brian Nielsen on March 5 in Denmark. Once he has beaten them, the WBC (World Boxing Council) has given him permission to take on current Heavyweight champ, 39-year old Vitali Klitschko. That would be a big money bout nearing $20 Million a piece!
