Holyfield-Mercer II (exhibition match)

18 years ago Ray Mercer and Evander Holyfield fought in a 10-round war in which Holyfield won a unanimous decision. On February 2, 2013, in South Africa, the two former world champions will once again step between the ropes of the squared circle and go to battle in a four round exhibition match. The rematch is part of The Nelson Mandela Boxing Tribute night. The 51-year-old Mercer (36-7, 26 KO) hasn’t fought since 2008 and the 49-year-old Holyfield (44-10, 29 KOs) hasn’t fought since May of last year.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
