Episode 25: Evander Holyfield

This quiet and humble superstar once owned the largest home in the state of Georgia and found a way to forgive Mike Tyson for biting off his ear on the same night it happened. Evander Holyfield captured the heavyweight title four times (most in boxing history), and nearly captured it a fifth time after a controversial loss to Nikolai Valuev. 

Holyfield fought in the opening years of Pay-Per-View boxing and amassed a fortune. He would go on to lose nearly all of it and he would end up fighting well past his prime.
