Holyfield-Mercer II: The Exhibition

Holyfield, the former four-time heavyweight titleholder, and Mercer, the former longtime contender, first met in May 1995 in Atlantic City, N.J. Holyfield, who was coming off losing the heavyweight championship to Michael Moorer 13 months earlier, won a hard-fought 10-round decision against Mercer. Now Holyfield (44-10-2, 29 KOs), who turns 50 in October but intends to continue his career, and the 51-year-old Mercer, who hasn't fought since 2008, are slated to fight again. But before you lose it, keep one thing in mind: It's only an exhibition.
