Evander Holyfield is fighting for his fifth heavyweight title Saturday night in Zurich against a seven-foot tall Russian dude. Should be a good time, although honestly, we're pretty stoked about that BYU/Arizona bowl game at 8pm. Since Holyfield is 46 and has seemingly been a pugilist for as many years as there are heavyweight belts you can win, well, we decided to take a look at his life.
