They might as the main event time gets closer. If not, it can just be a post fight reactionary thread. I am sure that some users on the forum bought this. There was decent TV commercial converge, and what is interesting, this match is getting more PR than the Juan vs. Julio Diaz fight later tonight on HBO.

I was tempted to buy it because I'm a Holyfield fan but I'm hesitant because I don't want to see him take a beating(Toney was enough) and my LSU Tigers are playing at 2:30 so I don't want to miss that...

I feel the same way about Holyfield. Its disappointing to see a weathered Holyfield (Im still trying to forget the Ruiz trilogy). By the way, I'll be saying War Eagle a lot next Saturday in Baton Rouge.

navarro lost via points UD

BigG
Damn..Navarro always had talent but has failed in 3 tries for the title (One robbery). Thats just too bad.

+325 for Holyfield was too good to pass up. That said, I think it's a pick'em fight and if it goes to the scorecards Holyfield's gettin' screwed.

How much did you risk on Holyfield Sal? So you're taking Holyfield by KO?

I think its a pretty tough prediction to pick an undefeated fighter not only to lose, but lose by KO - especially when he's not facing a puncher.

Holyfield would have to land a few perfect left hooks like he did against Savarese... Even if Holyfield hurts Ibragimov does Evander have enough in the tank to pour it on and finish a guy off? I doubt the ref will be very quick to stop it if Ibragimov is hurt due to the home court advantage.

As much as I'll root for Evander to stop Ibragimov, the other way around is what my gut says.

PREFIGHT
The challenger, Evander Holyfield, comes out first to an inspirational religious song. As usual, he's in excellent shape. A very serious look on his face. The champion, Sultan Ibragimov, enters next. He looks calm, cool and collected...like just another day at the office.

I bet $90.26 (the remaining balance in my dwindling internet wagering account). And the point of the bet was that it was +325 on Holyfield for the win any way he can get it. That's why I took it.

Hopefully it's becoming clear to everyone that Holyfield is just waiting to fulfill my prediction of the dramatic 12th round stoppage. LOL. More circling from Ibragimov. More pressing forward and pawing with the jab from Holyfield. One full minute goes by and absolutely nothing happened for me to report. Looping hook from Ibragimov lands. Another straight lef down the middle from Ibragimov rocks Holyfield. 1-2 lands for Holyfield when he finally let's his hands go, but Ibragimov makes him pay with a left and dances away.

Ok,

Assuming that there isn't Eugina Williams scoring here, how many rounds do you think Holyfield could take just because of his name and getting sympathy from the judges? Maybe two at most, right?

Body shot got Holyfield. The double jab was sick too where he missed and then caught him on the second. Evander had that nice flurry and a few openings, but wasn't able to capitalize.
