COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Asia.eurosport.com reported that Evander Holyfield (44-10-2-1), former heavyweight champion, defeated Denmark’s Brian Nielsen (64-2) on a technical knockout in the 10th round on Saturday night, May 7.

Nielsen gave Holyfield a series of combination on the eight rounds before Holyfield turned it around in the 10th.

The bout was halted after Holyfield landed several jabs in the corner. However Nielsen claims that he was hit by Holyfield’s head-butts.

Holyfield’s last appearance in the ring was in January. He was cut above the left eye by an accidental head butt in his fight against Sherman Williams and the bout was ruled a no-contest.

The ticket for the 2,100 seat c was sold out.

Despite Nielsen being pressed and a swollen eye, Nielsen kept on clowning to provoke Holyfield throughout the bout, prompting his trainer, Paul Duvill, to beg him to stop fooling around and focus on Holyfield.
