Get ready for a big fight on Saturday, October 14th ! Evander Holyfield (42-8-2, 27 KOs) , four-time heavyweight champion goes for a fifth title when he challenges unbeaten WBO beltholder Sultan Ibragimov (21-0-1, 17 KOs) in 12-rounds at Khodynka Ice Palace in Moscow. The real deal Evander Holyfield has won four straight bouts since he got back from taking a two year break after recovering from a shoulder injury. Now he goes for the fifth – Is that an impossible dream to chase ?- Ibragimov gets knocked out by Holyfield ? We shall see, as the fight is in Moscow a knock out will be hard to achieve for Holyfield.
This is going to be Hollywood Material – A piece of history that Holyfield really wants to achieve.. Sultan Ibragimov is a former Olympic medal holder and is known for his power punching, the partner that is preparing him for the Holyfield fight is worried for the veteran American.
Batchelder said: “Holyfield’s tricky, he’s dirty – who knows how long he might be able to last but I just see Sultan, I mean he’s just too fast, he’s younger, I just really see Sultan just destroying him. “That’s the only way I see the fight ending up.
Well, maybe Ibragimov wins the fight by knock out, Sultan (32) is much younger then Holyfield who will be turning 45.
“I saw his last fight against Lou Savarese, and he went 10 rounds like it was the first,” Ibragimov says. “I think he’s been working hard in the gym. He has a good chin and a really good defense. I think it will go 12 rounds, and I’m ready to go 12 rounds.”
