A real deal of a real warrior

AdvantagesIn his prime he was magnificant

DisadvantagesShould have retired 7 or so years ago

Give up evander



"...the time is up for evander holyfield now, and that he shoul, once and for all, hang up his gloves. Last night, one could see that the stamina and skill that was once there had somewhat diminished, and where agility and speed once reigned, replacement with a tired figure now was presented.
