Default Holyfield, where does he go next

Holyfield still has some fights left in himwho would you like him to fight next?

It may sound ironic, but I would quite like him to 'retire' some people that have been hanging around the heavyweight division too long.

Holy vs Rahman II would be interesting, the first fight was close until that lump

Given his money troubles he should fight regularly in lower-level fights; he should fight a few times a year against moderate competition to get him through the bills but not place too much risk to his health.

It's just too big of a risk to get in there with the klitschkos and Haye, they hit so ****ing hard it's possible he's risking his health. At this point his amazing chin would be his downfall, he'd take an insane amount of punishment.

Holyfield vs. Retirement is a great little match-up.

Holyfield doesn't deserve a shot at any of the major titles. He can't keep living off his name value and he can't expect boxing to fund his infidelity. As one of the guys said above, nothing to stop him from fighting regularly at a lower level, but giving him more title shots is embarassing for the sport. If he wins some eliminators, fair enough, but knocking out Francois Botha won't cut it.

If commisions says hes medically sound to fight then no1 can take away his right to earn a living, even if its to pay for his infidelity. The 'big 4' governing bodies need to shock us all with some common sense and not give this guy a high ranking, as mentioned it would be a farce and lets be honest ludicrously dangerous to put holyfield in with the highest echelon of heavyweights. Theyve done this up to now tbf but I hope they stick to it. Granted the divsion is poor but there heavyweights, any punch can ko a guy and in Holyfields case the risk is greater.

100% agree with above, low level shows aka glorofied exhibitions is the way to go for the good of Evander and boxing itself

If he has any sense he'll retire.

To be fair to old man Holyfield, his efforts against Valuev were not a million miles off those of Haye's.

He should have however called it a day years ago - goes without saying.

I wish he'd retired, but probably fight another ageing fighter, Tua or maybe rematch Toney

I am suprised that Sauerland hasn't got options on Holy, it may be early but Helenius or Pianeta might see Holy as a faded legend who will look good on their record

Holyfield should retire but look out for fights against Tyson, Jones Jr or Hopkins...
