Evander Holyfield vs. Brian Nielsen

defeated Brian Nielsen (boxer) by TKO at 2:49 in round ten.The bout occured on May 7,2019 in Copenhagen,Denmark. It was Holyfield's last boxing match.


Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield stopped Denmark's Brian Nielsen on a technical knockout in the 10th round.

In the 10th round, the 48-year-old Holyfield pressed Nielsen in the corner and the bout was halted after Holyfield landed several jabs in the corner and the Dane spat out some blood.

Nielsen said after the bout he was hit by Holyfield's headbutts.


Despite being pressed and with a swollen eye, Nielsen kept on clowning to provoke Holyfield throughout the bout, prompting his trainer, Paul Duvill, to beg him to stop fooling around and focus on Holyfield.

But the Dane made a comeback in the eighth round, pushing a tired-looking Holyfield into the ropes with a series of combinations, before Holyfield turned it around in the 10th.

Nielsen, with a bag of ice on his bloodied face, said he disagreed with the decision to halt the fight.

He suggested a rematch to Holyfield.

"That's enough.

I don't need a rematch," Holyfield said, laughing.

The audience at the soldout 2,100-seat Koncerthuset included giant Russian boxer Nikolai Valuev and Denmark's Mikkel Kessler, who was forced to pull out of the Super Six tournament because of an eye injury
