Evander Holyfield (born October 19, 1962)
is an American former professional boxer. He held the undisputed world
championship in both the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions,
earning him the nickname "The Real Deal". He is the only four-time
world heavyweight champion, winning the WBA, WBC and IBF titles in
1990, the WBA and IBF titles in 1993, as well as the WBA title in
1996 and 2000.
After winning a bronze medal in the light heavyweight
