Holyfield - Botha Post Fight Press Conference Quotes

Evander Holyfield: ďPeople talk and you act like it doesnít bother you when they call you old and senile. Iíve been telling people since 1992 when I lost to Riddick Bowe that I was going to be undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. I won 2 but not the third. Itís never been about money. I was brought up poor and never had anything. I was taught to have goals and to never quit.

ďBotha gave me an opportunity. People talk about my legacy. Itís about who youíve fought. They canít deny me; I fight the best.. I always want to fight somebody to get a little credit if I beat Ďem. When I decided to comeback it wasnít because Iím the type that says heís one of the best. This is a new era and I didnít think Iíd be in this era. I was laughing a little when I fought George Foreman. He was 42 and I was 29. I rally didnít want to fight him. He didnít beat me but he did become world champion again. What I learned from that fight was George said it wasnít about age but that I will give my all.

ďYou canít let people tell you what you can do. I fight because I want to. I wouldnít be the person I am without opportunities.Ē

Frans Botha: ďIím honored to fight in Las Vegas and to fight a great champion. Evander Holyfield is the real deal, a true champion and warrior. I canít feel ashamed to lose to a great champion. I think heís going to rule again. He has the skill, power and determination, everything to get that title again.Ē
