Will Groves’ words come to bite him on his behind?

A lot of boxing fans remember that bold prediction that Evander Holyfield made when he said that he would knock out Lennox Lewis in three rounds ahead of their controversial 1999 undisputed heavyweight match. He said God told him that is what would happen. It failed to materialise. What followed, by Holyfield’s own admission, is that he almost quit after that third round after almost losing heart.

War and Wealth: A glimpse of one of boxing’s rare conclusions

It is an all too familiar story hearing legends of the ring announcing their return to the squared circle, commonly due to financial issues. In Mike Tyson’s recent autobiography he admitted to owning so many vehicles that he never had driven many of them. Evander Holyfield, who may yet make another comeback later this year in 2014, lost his twenty bathroom mansion due to debts of over $10 million that saw his most treasured possessions used during his boxing career being auctioned off. Rumours are that Manny Pacquiao is in some kind of financial strife which may cause him to fight on longer than his body can hold out.
