Evander Holyfield Auction Catalog
PROPERTY FROM THE LIFE AND CAREER OF EVANDER HOLYFIELD
THE ONLY FIVE-TIME HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
The fully-illustrated, color catalog is a collector’s item itself detailing the history of property from one of the most legendary boxers of all times. The auction catalog will feature the complete collection of Property From The Life & Career of Evander Holyfield. It’s an unprecedented array of boxing memorabilia, household items, vehicles, jewelry and personal property being offered at auction on Friday, November 30th, 2012. This historic collection of memorabilia from the world’s only five-time heavyweight champion in boxing history is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans, investors, museums and collectors alike to join in the celebration of the career of one of the greatest fighting champions of all time. Highlights in the auction include Holyfield’s 1984 Olympic Bronze Medal and 1983 Pan-Am Games Silver medal. Featured items also include over 20 pairs of fight worn gloves including the gloves worn in the June 1997 Holyfield vs. Tyson II fight — a.k.a. “The Bite Fight.” An amazing array of WBC, WBA and IBF Championship belts will be offered in the sale including Holyfield’s first ever professional title belt for his 1986 WBA Cruiserweight title. Equally as impressive are the more than 25 framed fight-worn robes and trunks including those worn by Holyfield for his 1996 upset of a then-heavily favored Mike Tyson resulting in his retention of the WBA Heavyweight title with the fight being named “Upset of the Year” and “The Fight of The Year” for 1996 by The Ring magazine. Some of the key artifacts of the Holyfield Collection are his numerous championship rings including Holyfield’s individual rings commemorating his unification as Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Two-Time Heavyweight Champion, Three-Time Heavyweight Champion and Four-Time Heavyweight Champion. Matching the impressiveness of Holyfield’s championship rings are his championship trophies including his 1992 WBA Boxer of the Year award. All this and more will be detailed in photographs and detailed descriptions in this coffee-table style catalog.
Note: printed catalogs will not be mailed until October 15th, 2012.
