Atlanta’s own Evander Holyfield was in the house at the weekend for Gervonta Davis’ big win over Mario Barrios and was as impressed as everyone else.
Holyfield had a statue unveiled in his honor on the Friday outside the arena where Davis won at the weekend.
The State Farm Arena.
After the fight Holyfield said of what he saw to Fight Hub YouTube (hat tip):
Big win indeed for Davis.
As for Holyfield, potential exists for an other exhibition for him later in the year it would appear.
Whatever the case he will always be boxing’s ‘Real Deal’.
One of the greats and legends, without doubt.
