Holyfield says he's "going to be undisputed world heavyweight champ"

Posted By: Staff

London, Apr 12 (ANI): Veteran boxer Evander Holyfield has warned fellow heavyweight champions David Haye and the Klitschko brothers that he can still be on the top at the age of 47.

The veteran boxer won the lightly regarded WBF title, watched by just 3,127, when he stopped South Africa's Frans Botha in Las Vegas on Saturday in the eighth round.

Afterwards Holyfield, fighting for the first time since December 2008, vowed to seek more title fights.

"I"m going to be the undisputed world heavyweight champion," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Holyfield had been behind on two judges' cards 67-66 when referee Russell Mora halted the bout, while the third judge had it 69-64 for Holyfield.

But the veteran drew on his resources to land a big blow and he is confident he can emulate George Foreman, who was 45 when he regained the world heavyweight title 15 years ago. (ANI)
