NO HOLDS BARRED: Evander Holyfield, Fres Oquendo, Vitali Klitschko, Laila Ali, Floyd Mayweather Sr., Calvin Brock
On a second edition this week of NO HOLDS BARRED, host Eddie Goldman discusses the upcoming boxing cards which will take place this weekend.
We first preview the fight this Friday night, November 10, between former world heavyweight champion, the 44-year-old Evander Holyfield (39-8-2, 26 KOs), and Fres Oquendo (26-3, 16 KOs), which will take place in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, and will be shown on pay-per-view. We spoke with Holyfield and Oquendo on a media conference call.
We next preview the main fights which will take place this coming Saturday, November 11, at Madison Square Garden in New York. At a public workout Tuesday, Nov. 7, at Grand Central Station, we caught up with the former WBC and WBO world heavyweight champion and now-retired fighter Vitali Klitschko, whose brother Wladimir is defending his IBF title. We spoke with the unbeaten WBC and WIBA super middleweight champion Laila Ali (22-0, 19 KOs), who is also regarded by many observers as being the best female boxer in the world today, who, in her Madison Square Garden debut, will fight Shelley Burton (8-2-1, 2 KOs) in a title bout. We spoke with her trainer, the former world champion Floyd Mayweather Sr., about how he ranks Laila Ali, as well as getting comments on the recent performance of his son, welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., and what he will do if his son does fight Oscar De La Hoya, whom Floyd Sr. trains, next year. And we also spoke with the undefeated former Olympian Calvin Brock (29-0, 22 KOs) about his title fight this Saturday night with Wladimir Klitschko.
