Whichever title he currently holds. Not sure which one it is to be exact but he does have one.

Maybe if we believe it doesn't exist it will go away.

I'm more than all for that, but I don't think we'll get so lucky anytime soon. I'm sure most of us who visit boxing forums get it but the average boxing fan is probably all on board with multiple titles because its just so confusing and nonsensical.

holyfield might win, he beat valuev and got robbed 2 yrs ago and povetkin is an easier win but those two years saw holy decline drastically in going life and death with tank williams

Povetkin will stop Holyfield. Sherman "The Tank" Williams beat Holyfield at the "Greenbrier", Holyfield quit claiming a cut, but the cut was small. What a joke!

The fight is a joke but i am rooting for Evander!

I hope he can knock Povetkin out. Povetkin is the joke, not Holyfield.

Personally I'd rather see Wlad-Povetkin and Holyfield-Mormeck (if they insist on fighting)

I think Holyfield can hurt Povetkin who was hurt by Chagaev

Povetkin isnt as fast as Iggy was and isnt as tall as Valuev was

he will be able to hit Povetkin

but Holyfield was losing to Botha when he got the win and was in danger vs Sherman Williams

Povetkin may be able to stop him in here

2 reasons

A he will wanna go on and take bigger fights

B he will win a bogus trinket and hail himself a 5 time champ and i dont wanna see this get argued

I'm not saying Holy can't hurt Povetkin...but Holy didn't stop Brian Nielsen until the tenth round and Nielsen hadn't fought in nine years. An obese, 46-year-old, who hadn't fought in nine years, who was stopped by Dicky Ryan, over ten years ago. Holy took ten rounds with that guy, in has last fight. Even if he hurts him with some odd punch, the likelihood of him being able to do anything to capitalize is pretty poor. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty poor.

all true but i think he can hurt Povetkin

im jsut saying can not will or that he will win but that Povetkin is easier to get to than Valuev and Iggy thatss all

i dont think he can win and the williams fight is my indicator
