Former World Boxing Champion Evander Holyfield was the special guest at last nights Sports/Boxing dinner at the Lancastrian Suite, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear. The event organised by precision sports had over 300 guests to come and see the legend of the boxing ring. The Iceman who was in attendance as a special guest managed to get the chance to have a picture, photo signed and shake the hand of the former champion.
His stories of how he started, made the grade, some of his fights and characters he has met and obviously the low down on Mike Tyson was a joy to hear as a boxing fan. Its always fantastic to meet fellow sportsmen, said ‘The Iceman’ but when you get the chance to meet an absolute legend you can’t miss it, awesome night and a privilege to meet him. I did ask him if he wanted to go for a pint and a kebab later, but he politely declined.
