(FOX BUSINESS) – Evander Holyfield, four-time world boxing champion, earning the nicknames “The Real Deal” and “The Warrior,” talks the future of the sport.
With the rise in popularity of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), boxing champions are no longer the household names they once were.
Holyfield attributes that to the sport not being publicized as much.
“I don’t think [MMA] is taking over [boxing], I think we’re not being publicized as much as [MMA]. So people believe what they see on TV, we’re not on TV as much as we used to be,” Holyfield said during an interview on FOX Business.
“People don’t talk about boxing as much in America.”
