Holyfield most recently fought last April defeating former world title challenger Francois Botha via 8th round TKO. Previously, Holyfield had lost back to back title fights in his quest to become the oldest fighter ever to win a major heavyweight title.

Holyfield is considered one of the greatest heavyweights in the history of boxing. He has wins over Hall of Famers Mike Tyson (twice), George Foreman and Larry Holmes. He’s also defeated former world champions James “Buster” Douglas, Hasim Rahman, John Ruiz, Michael Moorer and Riddick Bowe.
Aside from his impressive accomplishment as a heavyweight, Holyfield was the first undisputed cruiserweight champion in the history of boxing and defeated Carlos De Leon, Dwight Muhammad Quawi and Henry Tillman in title fights at that weight. He was also an Olympic Bronze Medalist at the 1984 games in Los Angeles in the light heavyweight division.
Sherman Williams was originally born in the Bahamas and now resides in Florida. He has a win over former world champion Alfred “Ice” Cole on his record and once fought and former world title challenger Jameel McCline to a draw. He’s also defeated tough journeyman such as Gabe Brown and has fought former world champion Ruslan Chagaev.
Holyfield is scheduled to fight former heavyweight contender Brian Nielsen in March. However, a knockout victory for Williams could potentially derail Holyfield’s plans.
