Boxing – 1987 – 15 Round IBF Cruiserweight Championship – Champ Rickey Parkey VS Evander Holyfield

DOG ASIDE:

Our Ima Sportsphile boxing library….which includes some 625 world championship title fights….plus 200 additional professional and amatuer bouts from the golden age of boxing (1964 – 1995) goes a long way in proving that this era did indeed contain more boxing legends in dang near every weight division…..a plethera of super great boxers…..a bunch of great fighters…..and many many really good masters of the art of boxing…..as our website already stands as undeniable evidence of our belief that the sport of boxing will never regain the stature of this golden age.

Without question….one of the heavyweight legends of this period was Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield…..and our viewers are getting to see this tremendous heavyweight fight from the early days of his professional career….the days of being maybe the best cruiserweight champion to ever fight….as he held the world title for the better part of 4 years.  

This 15 round IBF Cruiserweight Title Fight with Rickey Parkey allowed Holyfield to become the undisputed world cruiserweight champion…..which he held until he moved up to the heavyweight division….but as every viewer can see….even against a really good cruiserweight champion in Parkey…..The Real Deal was already head and shoulders above even the really good boxers of this era.
