    As long as Evander Holyfield can pass the required medical tests, it's his life. I'm not going to pretend I know what's best for him better than he does.

    I'm sure the HBO brass is sitting there going, "Oh, Evander's fighting? Yawn."

    Heavyweights are ass. There's tons of good Mexican fighters to watch, along with others like Gatti and Mayweather. Don't waste your time on the big boys.

    Any commission that authrorizes this mess should be disbanded and the members sued.

    I'll be stunned if this fight actually happens. I can't see a lot of people shelling out cash to watch it either in person or on PPV.

    Here's to hoping it ends up as one of those fights during the middle of the week in the afternoon on ESPN2.

    But if he passes all the required medical tests (and assuming these are honest, ethical doctors, not the kind that have a way of finding whatever the people paying the bills want them to find) why shouldn't he be allowed to fight? As I said, it's his life. I doubt he's suicidal and you know he's not going to face anybody who poses a real risk for a while.
