The never-before-published narrative of Evander Holyfield's life reveals a man of character behind the larger-than-life public image. He rose from an impoverished background to become history's only four-time World Heavyweight Champion, commanding fees of up to $30 million a fight. Never the biggest, nor the meanest (Tyson), nor the prettiest (Ali), he is nevertheless among the most respected and beloved.BECOMING HOLYFIELD is a treasure-trove of behind-the-scenes stories of people who have become legend, including promoter Don King and boxers Lennox Lewis and, of course, Mike Tyson, whose two showdowns with Evander -- including the infamous 'Bite Fight' -- have gone down as all-time classic contests. It is also one legend's honest look back over his life and the many lessons he learned to become a fulfilled father, husband and simply a good man.
