Holyfield has never retired from the ring, so although he compares age wise with Foreman, his achievements are not in the same league. A victory over Ibragimov would not compare to an unbeaten Moorer either.
It annoys me as well about this four time champion rubbish. Anyone and I mean anyone can claim alphabet **** four times if they wish...
It also taints Holyfield, because one of his excellent achievements is being one of only five fighters to regain THE Heavyweight Championship of the World.
sure foreman beat an unbeaten michael moorer....he also beat a blown up light heavyweight known for two things...big power/no chin.....made for george(george was getting beat out of sight in the figh, but anytime he connected it was always gona be over...).......i maintain that holyfield beating sultan, if it happens, will be a greater acheivment...
