Regular price $115.00

1996 was a very good year for Holyfield. First, he met former world champion Bobby Czyz, beating him by a knockout in six. Then, he and Mike Tyson finally met. Tyson had recovered the WBC and WBA Heavyweight Championship and, after being stripped of the WBC title for not facing Lennox Lewis, defended the WBA title against Holyfield on November 9 of that year. Tyson was heavily favored to win, but Holyfield made history by defeating Tyson in an 11th round TKO. This was the third occasion on which Holyfield won the WBA Heavyweight title. However, the fight was not recognized as being for the Linear Heavyweight Championship, which was held by George Foreman at the time. Offered here is an original, souvenir T shirt for this event.
This is an original, never worn, souvenir T shirt which pictures Holyfield on the back. Made for the host venue MGM Grand. 100% cotton. Size XL. Includes original tags.
