Evan Holyfield beat Charles Stanford to the canvas in the second round of their fight to score a knockout in front of his legendary father on Satu
Evan Holyfield beat Charles Stanford to the canvas in the second round of their fight to score a knockout in front of his legendary father on Saturday night.
A longtime rival of Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson, one of the three world champions at cruiserweight and heavyweight, saw from the ring that his son was again impressed.
Evan, 24, stabbed Stanford with his left hook and then hit him hard with his right hand shortly after in the second round in his hometown of Atlanta.
He is undefeated with six knockouts in eight fights in the super welterweight division.
The 58-year-old celebrated with his father, who returned to the ring earlier this year, but was defeated in a round by former UFC Great Witter Belfort.
Xander Zayas also recorded a win with a stoppage in the fourth round against Dan Carpenzi.
Jayas, a 19-year-old Puerto Rican talent, landed enough painful punches to get his opponent back in his corner.
