Evander Holyfield June 2014

Evander Holyfield hasn’t been in the ring for three years, but he never officially retired from boxing. On Friday, the 51-year-old officially said his playing days are over as he admitted he will be entering the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame in August.

From Eurosport:

“No, I’m done. They’re putting me in the Hall of Fame on the 9th, so it will be official. Won’t nobody fight me, and now, I don’t want to get hit.

“It just started happening. The guys [at Dynasty Boxing] were waiting on me to be part of this thing, and I told them that I would. They said, ‘Have you retired?’ I said I’d be retired that day. I’d say that’s it.”

Holyfield retires with a 44-10-2 record along with a no contest. He had 29 knockouts in 57 career fights. It seems like more will remember him for getting bit by Mike Tyson, though, than being a multi-division champion.
