“It felt so good. I still love it. All my best fights been on Showtime.”
Showtime has been honoring Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield, and looking back at his historic climb up the ranks in the boxing ring as the network kicks off the 30th Anniversary of Showtime Championship Boxing. They already showed a video look back at his rematch knockout over Dwight Muhammad Qawi.
Now, in addition to showcasing the above clip of Holyfield talking about his best appearances on Showtime, we also have a look back at Evander Holyfield vs. Michael Dokes.
Holyfield scored a 10th round knockout of Dokes. In the midst of that round, we hear the announce team reference the Qawi knockout and how this fight was developing similarly. Of course, Holyfield goes on to score the stoppage in short order after that.
Expect more fun look backs at Holyfield’s best on Showtime – there’s probably going to be some Mike Tyson in there – in the days and weeks ahead.
