Evander Holyfield Collection Now Open For Bidding at Julien’s Auctions

 Julien’s Auctions, the world’s premier sports and entertainment auction house, announces the auction of exclusive Property From The Life and Career of Evander Holyfield, an unprecedented array of boxing memorabilia, household items, vehicles, jewelry and personal property being offered at auction on Friday, November 30th, 2012.  Bidders can register at www.juliensauctions.com and bidders can also register AND view lots at www.julienslive.com (that is our bidding site). Printed catalogues will be available in the next 1-2 weeks and can be ordered from www.juliensauctions.com or by calling (310) 836-1818. This historic collection of memorabilia from the world’s only five-time heavyweight champion in boxing history is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans, investors, museums and collectors alike to join in the celebration of the career of one of the greatest fighting champions of all time.

Holyfield versus Tyson "Bite Fight" gloves

With 44 wins, 29 by knockout, and a career that has spanned almost three decades, Holyfield’s record demonstrates the focus and commitment to excellence of a true champion.

Holyfield 1984 Olympic Bronze Medal

Holyfield’s exclusive collection features an assortment of memorabilia from every stage of his career — from his teenage years to his recent 2011 fight. This is the first time such items from Evander Holyfield’s personal collection have been offered publicly for auction.

Highlights from the auction include Holyfield’s 1984 Olympic Bronze Medal and 1983 Pan-Am Games Silver medal.  Featured items also include over 20 pairs of fight worn gloves including the gloves worn in the June 1997 Holyfield vs. Tyson II fight — a.k.a. “The Bite Fight.”

1st Professional Fight Robe - 1984

An amazing array of WBC, WBA and IBF Championship belts will be offered in the sale including Holyfield’s first ever professional title belt for his 1986 WBA Cruiserweight title. More than 25 framed fight-worn robes and trunks are included including those worn by Holyfield for his 1996 upset of a then-heavily favored Mike Tyson.

The 1996 fight resulted in the retention of his WBA Heavyweight title with the fight being named “Upset of the Year” and “The Fight of The Year” for 1996 by The Ring magazine.

Some of the key artifacts of the Holyfield Collection are his numerous championship rings including Holyfield’s individual rings commemorating his unification as Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Two-Time Heavyweight Champion, Three-Time Heavyweight Champion and Four-Time Heavyweight Champion.  Matching the impressiveness of Holyfield’s championship rings are his championship trophies including his 1992 WBA Boxer of the Year award.

For the pure boxing and sports collectors there are autographed items including training worn boxing shoes, trunks, robes and shirts.

There are also many signed promotional posters and photographs from the fights throughout Holyfield’s amazing career.

Holyfield 2000 WBA Title Ring

The auction will also feature items from Holyfield’s life outside of the ring including furniture and decorative items from his residence and clothing from his custom made wardrobe.  Fine women’s and men’s diamond jewelry, and watches from Rolex, Cartier and Patek Phillippe.  One of the feature vehicle attractions will be Holyfield’s 1962 Chevrolet Corvette.  The red painted speedster was manufactured the same year that Holyfield was born and was one of the first significant purchases of his professional career.

From his humble beginnings as a teenage boxer in Atlanta, to his storied and fabled career inside professional arenas around the world, Evander Holyfield has demonstrated his commitment to excellence at every opportunity he has been given, enabling his professional record, and his fists to speak for themselves.

All of the property in the auction will be featured in a full color limited edition catalog available for purchase at www.juliensauctions.com for $75. A limited number of catalogs will be signed by Evander Holyfield for the price of $250 each.
