    This fight was another robbery in the career of Evander Holyfield, who clearly fought his way to a clear-cut 12rds decision over Valuev. yet got shafted by the judges. This fight is very similar in almost every way to Holyfield vs Lewis (2) where Lewis was unbelievably given the decision over Holyfield, robbing Evander of his undisputed titles.
