EVANDER HOLYFIELD vs. RIDDICK BOWE (3) Site*AUTO  

Description : Here we have an original authentic Riddick Bowe autographed official onsite main event poster from the fight billed as "The Final Chapter" Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, November 4, 1995.

The non-title match marked the third and final fight in the Bowe–Holyfield trilogy. After the previous fight between the two in which Holyfield was able to regain the WBA, IBF and Lineal heavyweight titles by defeating Bowe via majority decision, Holyfield would face undefeated southpaw Michael Moorer in his first defense. Though Holyfield would knockdown Moorer in the 2nd round, Moorer overcame and was able to earn the victory via majority decision. Bowe, meanwhile, would fight a no-contest against Buster Mathis, Jr. and defeat Larry Donald before capturing the less-regarded WBO Heavyweight Championship by knocking out Herbie Hide. After a successful defense of his tile against Jorge Luis González, Bowe and Holyfield would agree to a non-title rubber match set for November 4, 1995, two years after their previous fight. Holyfield did not want to challenge for the WBO title as he thought it would politically hinder his chances of gaining a match for the WBA, WBC and IBF titles

Unlike the previous two fights between the two, this match would not go the full 12 rounds, instead Bowe would earn the deciding victory via 8th round technical knockout, becoming the first man to knock out Holyfield. The match was perhaps the most brutal of the trilogy with each man knocking the other down. By round 5, Holyfield, who was suffering from Hepatitis A appeared to be completely exhausted. Nevertheless, Holyfield came back strong in round 6, knocking down Bowe for the first time in Bowe's professional career with a left hook to the chin. In round 8, Bowe would return the favor knocking down Holyfield twice. Holyfield came at Bowe aggressively, throwing a combination at Bowe. Bowe was able to counter with a short right hand that knocked Holyfield to the canvas. Holyfield was able to answer referee Joe Cortez's count at nine but was quickly knocked down by Bowe again, forcing Cortez to stop the fight and award Bowe the victory via technical knockout.
