Evan Holyfield, Son Of Evander Holyfield, Serves Brutal Second-Round Knockout Vs. Charles Stanford

Saturday night was Evan Holyfield’s first time fighting in front of his hometown crowd in Atlanta, and the 24-year-old boxer didn’t seem to disappoint.

Holyfield, son of legendary boxer Evander Holyfield, scored an emphatic second-round knockout over Charles Stanford in the undercard of Shakur Stevenson versus Jamel Herring.

Holyfield landed a left hook, briefly freezing Stanford, before he went in for a follow-up right hand, which sent his opponent to the canvas, ending the fight.

The blow marks his sixth win by knockout, extending his eight-fight winning streak. Only two of his pro career fights made it past the third round.

Holyfield’s father, Evander, was in attendance with the 5,000+ crowd. He smiled as he witnessed his son earn the victory. Evander is the only four-time world heavyweight champion. He also reigned as the undisputed cruiserweight titleholder in the late 1980s.

He’s recently coming off a knockout loss against Vitor Belfort as part of a Triller card that came with much controversy.

Evan is one of Evander’s 11 children. His younger brother, Elijah, is a running back for professional NFL team Cincinnati Bengals.
