Former world heavyweight champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield and Frans “The White Buffalo” Botha faced off at a final press conference held today at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. “All I have thought about since 1999 was becoming the unified heavyweight champion again,” said Holyfield. “I am thankful to Frank Luca [of Crown Boxing] for giving this opportunity to once again to become a champion. I am in great shape and looking forward to fight on April 10.”

“I am very proud to be fighting a legend like Evander Holyfield, who has fought and defeated the best heavyweights in the world,” said Botha. “We should have fought ten years ago but for some reason it just didn’t happen. But now I am going to do everything I can to retire him permanently.”
