Legendary heavyweight world champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield (43-10-2, 28 KOs) and Sherman “Tank” Williams (34-11, 19 KOs) ended in a three round no-contest on Saturday night at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The 48-year-old Holyfield was cut over the left eye in round two by an unintentional headbutt and rocked by a Williams right hand in round three. After the round Evander said he couldn’t see and the bout was declared a no contest. The cut could very well jeopardize Evander’s scheduled March 5 fight against Brian Nielsen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the co-feature, former heavyweight title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (24-1-1, 10 KOs), who took the bout on short notice, won an eight round unanimous decision over 300lb, seven-footer Julius Long (15-15, 13 KOs). Johnson dropped Long twice in round eight. Scores were 79-71 on all cards.

Former heavyweight title challenger Monte Barrett (34-9-2, 20 KOs) and journeyman Charles Davis (19-21-3, 4 KOs) fought to an eight round majority draw. Scores were 77-75 Davis, 76-76, 76-76.

In an impressive display of brute power Cedric “The Boz” Boswell (32-1, 25 KOs) continued to roll stopping Dominique “Diamond” Alexander (19-10, 9 KOs) in the second round after knocking down his opponent three times with hard left hooks to the body.

Middleweight Willie Fortune (10-0, 5 KOs) won an eight round split decision over Donatas Bondoravas (10-2-1, 3 KOs). Scores were 77-75, 77-75 for Fortune, 77-75 Bondoravas. Fortune was almost stopped midway through the fight, but recovered well..

Unbeaten middleweight Domonique Dolton (10-0, 7 KOs) took a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over veteran Marcos Primera (20-23-2, 13 KOs). Scores were 80-72 on all cards.

Junior welterweight Miguel Gonzalez (13-2, 12 KOs) scored a third round KO over Ramon Guevara (9-21-2, 6 KOs). The bout was stopped due to the three knockdown rule.
