It'll be some sort of scripted nonsense where no punches are actually thrown, and if they are, they'll be faked punches.

That you can bet on.

Holyfield is merely making him some money, so more power to him.

Did you ever see Butterbean fight a WWE Superstar in Brawl for All? Butterbean knocked Bart Gunn out more brutally than he did Johnny Knoxville.

The video is on youtube if you're interested.

What does that have to do about anything exactly? The fact remains that even if it is all staged, what if Holyfield injures himself? This is his last shot at a HW title and he was amazingly lucky that he got it(Maybe he sent a hooker with Hep B to Chagaev's room? kidding).

You seem to be under the impression that everybody does everything you do. From stealing thousands of dollars worth of music, to stealing porn, to watching "Professional" wrestling...eh..this is hopeless, and you are tiring .

This story is legit. The wrestler, MVP, has a problem with his heart, which causes it to often beat faster than usual.

The chances of him getting injured here are far lower than when he is training hard for a heavyweigfht title shot. Obviously he could get injured, but it's very unlikely. All this is, is a publicity stunt. Wrestling is watched by millions every week, so it's bound to raise the profile for boxing and this fight. The reward is bigger than the risk.
It'll be a simple sparring thing. Probably last less than 2 minutes, before MVP (Bad guy) jumps Hardy (good guy), and then Holyfield lays MVP out, just like Tyson/Michaels.

True, more people that know about the fight the better. Hadn't thought about it that way. Just can't help but think what a disapointment it would be for him if something were to happen. Hopefully he entertains people enough to go watch the fight.

MVP and Evander Holyfield were backstage acting like they were posse members

Matt Hardy vs. Holyfield in a boxing match. Michael Buffer was ring announcer. They plugged Holyfield's next match and put him over, so there must be a business deal here with Vince in some form.

Holyfield destroyed Hardy. In round two, Holyfield turned babyface because he refused to continue to pummel Hardy. MVP got mad at him for not hurting Hardy, so he KO'd MVP

Sounds like Evander, who learned to change his ways, turned the tides on his tormentor, and stood up for the forces of good.

And evil has been defeated, once again.

Thank GOD we had Evander to take care of that evil MVP for us. If MVP had not been stopped, no telling what would have come of it.

Tyson got in on some of this crap back several years ago. Him and Steve Austin. That was rediculous and laughable, to say the least.

I think Evander's outting in the WWF/E sounds equally as funny.
