He's obviously worked his ass off and is ready to make the most out of, what could be, a final chance at a title.

Its probably due more to the fact that he is 56 years old and losing muscle mass than any great training regimine.

Now that's funny.

I don't care how hard he works - I see him getting his ass kicked.

It was a nice run - but this is the end.

at 211 I don't see him having the power to KO Sultan, nor do I see him outboxing Sultan over 12 rounds, this will get ugly for the old boy.If he doesn't get stopped it will be a wide UD.

The light wieght is a good sign that hes ready for war, he knows he needs to be lighter to be able hit Iggy with effective punches. Theres a difference between making Briggs miss and making Holyfield miss, I hoping Holyfield will be able to put his combinations together Tommorrow night.

211.5 pounds of weight? Superb physical condition, ripped to the bone, chiseled, body beautiful and masterful technician, mental strenth and tons of heart, he's in shape to get in there and overwhelm Sultan with fiercing attacks and blazing combinations to earn his respect and then box him off on light feet and sustained body activity.

If he wins then it was great.

If he loses then it was bad.

Boxing fans are all-knowing.

I dont see that as a valid reason.. He has been weighing around 220 ofr most of his fights until just now.. (As in his last 4-5 fight, i think)

Sultan isn't that good. Holyfield could win this. Anybody who gets decked by Ray Austin is extremely beatable. The only question in this fight is whether Holyfield has enough of his superior skills left to beat a guy like this. I think he does.
