Holyfield Fight Available Now On Internet PPV

13.11.06 - The 12-round victory by four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, which nearly ended in a KO and could propel the 44-year-old legend into a shot at a record fifth world title, can be seen now over the Internet. Holyfield-Fast Fres Oquendo, which ended in a verdict disputed by some, can be purchased by going to www.foxsports.com..

The price of the show, which includes two sensational undercard bouts featuring Golden Johnson-Oscar Diaz in a hometown grudge match and rising stars Jose Navarro and Gabriel Elizondo, is only $44.95.

The card, which drew 10,133 screaming fans to there Alamodome in San Antonio, was promoted by Murad Muhammad/M &M Sports. It was beamed to 130 countries and was also seen over the Armed Forces Network.

"Fight fans know there was some controversy," Muhammad said. "The decision was a close one. Now they can click on to foxsports.com and judge it themselves. They will also see a bloody war of attrition between Diaz and Johnson and a nip-and-tuck battle between Navarro and Elizondo which also wound up a very narrow victory.

"It is an opportunity to witness the legendary Holyfield in a historic, highly-competitive match as he marches on towards that spectacular bid to become a five-time heavyweight champion. As I often said in the run-up, Evander's age is not 44, it is $44.95, and this great show is worth it.

"Look at this way, you are paying pennies for precious memories. Or you could say it is just $15 per fight, a boxing bargain to be sure," Muhammad said.
