Happy 55th Birthday to former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield.
Holyfield is the only four-time world heavyweight champion, having held the WBA, WBC, IBF, and lineal titles from 1990 to 1992; the WBA, IBF, and lineal titles again from 1993 to 1994; the WBA title from 1996 to 1999; the IBF title from 1997 to 1999; and the WBA title for a fourth time from 2000 to 2001.
On the latest episode of #ThePlaybook, I spoke with Showtime Boxing’s Executive Producer David Dinkins Jr. David is a two-time Emmy-award winner producer responsible for some of the most historic pay-per-view fights of the last half-century, including Mayweather vs. Mcgregor, Tyson vs. Holyfield, and Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.
Oftentimes fighters put their lives on the line and wind up with nothing to show for it 😔 because promoters and people around them take advantage of the situation. You don't know how hard this is for me to watch...Please donate if you can. Repost from @kingmofh using @RepostRegramApp - Lets help the @therealriddickbowe.
