Default Holyfield to fight Brian Nielsen !!!

It is 8 years ago Brian Nielsen announced his retirement. Ever since, every year on april 1 - the joke was that Brian Nielsen would make a comeback.
He would join the K1 circus, have a rematch against Tyson and so on.
At home in sunny Spain, Nielsen laughed: "Im not a fool !". "Im in the
Golf-buissness now !"

Money aint easy anymore in the Golf-buissness. So Nielsen - not afraid to be called a fool - decided to convince Kalle Sauerland that the Danes X-mas wish was a Nielsen comeback to the boxng buissness.
And now we have a Holyfield - Nielsen match on March 5.
Not a joke anymore it has turned into sad news for Danish boxing.
Nielsen - invalid with a stiff knee, blurred speach and a heavy, fat and untrimmed body - is an old 45 year going to fight a young 48-year old, very fit boxer.
With Mogens Palle out of boxing, boxing haters at the the Danish parlaiment has had nothing to say since the Sauerlands started to run shows in Denmark.
Now waiting on the sidelines - the Nielsen comeback - is like throwing candy to children.
Worst scenario Nielsen getting damaged, hospitalized will surely put a ban on boxing in Denmark, like in Sweden or like in Norway where proffessionel boxing is completely banned.
Best scernario - Danish Boxing Federation saying "No way well sanction such a Circus !" wont happen - leaving boxing fans hoping that Nielsen will surrender like he did against Tyson - "When the going gets tough - Nielsen does a NO MAS !".

Kind of said. First Botha, now Neilson. Seems like Holy wants to start a seniors leaugue. Who's next. Corrie Sanders? Alexander Zolkein?

or perhaps Jose Ribalta, Mike Weaver, Gerrie Coetzee......Mind you, as Holy seems to be fighting in europe the mo perhaps "the Lion of Flanders", Jean Pierre Coopman could be lured out of retirement, the winner to fight the still in shape Brian London, 76.

Holyfield wipes the canvas with him. Holyfield still fights and has been active to this day.

I do not know why Holyfield is doing this anymore.

I guess he knows that Brian Nielsen has a good record and he would destroy him, but seriously this does not prove anything in terms of world title credentials.

Holyfield would brutalise Nielsen.

I hope Nielsen Brutally KO's this steroid taking bull. We need to get Holyfield out of this sport embarrassing it.

Ofcourse Holy will win but it doesn't bring him anything. He is crushing down his own legacy...

If Holyfield really goes through with this after the Williams debacle he should lost some fans.

I'm expecting (or rather, hoping for) a cancellation and retirement announcement any day now.
