Evander Holyfield

I'm NEVER Boxing Again

10/12/2012 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

101212_holyfield_launch
Evander Holyfield says he's officially done fighting ... FOREVER ... despite reports the 49-year-old boxing great is looking to get back in the ring one last time. 

After his last fight back in 2011, Holyfield had hinted that he wanted one more go inside the ring before hanging up the gloves ... and considering his troubling financial situation, it seemed like a sure thing.

But last night at LAX, Holyfield assured us his boxing days are over ... period.

Thus ends the career of one of the greatest boxers of all-time -- he finishes his illustrious career with 44 wins, several championships, and of course ... half an ear.

TMZ got it right. He is one of the best boxers of all time. But you know he will fight one more time for the money.

Throwback kid    

Evander has 11 kids so we know he is also the Heavyweight Champ when it comes to sperm count. Maybe the Kardashians can hire The Real Deal Holyfield to donate his sperm for Khloe? That way they can stop doing every other episode on why Khloe can't get pregnant. Evander is better looking than Lamar, it would be a cute kid!

Sad these guys burn through so much money. They never learn from history. He can always make some bread selling autographs.
