 Boxing Odds - Evander Holyfield vs. Brian Nielson Legends Of The Ring Tilt Holds Some Intrigue
posted 6 years ago

Boxing Odds - Evander Holyfield vs. Brian Nielson Legends Of The Ring Tilt Holds Some Intrigue - With the rise of Mixed Martial Arts around the world, the sport of boxing has lost a considerable amount of fans over the years. So much so that unless its top events have featured names such as Mayweather or Pacquiao they have gone largely unnoticed. That has left promoters desperate to find marquee names to pair up against one another in the ring, so much so that the sport has now tried to turn back the time with a couple of legends set to make their return to the ring. In what is being billed the “Legends of the Ring” showdown, a couple of former heavyweight superstars will exchange blows as Evander Holyfield returns to fight Brian Nielson on May 7, 2011 as the MLB betting season gets into full swing.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Holyfield – 200 Boxing Odds

 

A cut above the left eye forced Holyfield to push the fight date back a couple of weeks to allow time for the wound to heal and not concede an unfair advantage, and while all of the talk leading up to that week will be about the 2011 Kentucky Derby betting, there is an obvious amount of intrigue leading up to this battle. The fact that Holyfiend took the extra couple of weeks to avoid conceding anything at all in favor of Nielson is crucial, something that obviously frustrated the latter.

 

Nielson admitted that he was upset about the delay leading up to the fight, but admitted that the more training that he gets and the more time he has to prepare the more confident he will feel. That confidence will be one of the keys to how the fight plays out, as both men will need to make sure that they press forward rather than get on their heels early on. Nielson has trained in a German setting under Karsten Rower for the past couple of months, ensuring that he will be at the same level as Holyfield when the opening round bell rings.

 

Holyfield’s last fight was at the end of January this year, a bout that was eventually ruled a “no contest” when it was determined that a gash opened by a headbutt from Sherman “The Tank” Williams that would not stop bleeding had presented an obvious disadvantage in the tilt. While Holyfield may be somewhat fatigued having fought only a couple of pay per head months ago, it actually could end up working in his favor as he is more ready to compete. That time in the ring should make him sharper when he resumes his career at the ripe age of 47, not that Nielson holds much of an age advantage at 54. The heavyweight division has been ripped on the past couple of years with the lack of true talent outside of the Klitschko brothers, opening the door for these two legends to step in and command a solid audience. Holyfield gets the edge due to his experience over the past few months, especially considering the obvious technique advantage he holds.
